BATTLE GROUND — Battle Ground Public Schools was able to provide every student in third through 12th grade with their own computer using funds collected from the local schools levy. That came out to 2,200 Chomebooks. Student access to technology has been especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic to keep students connected. Since March, the district distributed more than $500,000 worth of mobile hotspots to keep students connected at home, according to a news release. Funds also helped the district purchase licenses for a GoGuardian parent app to keep students safe on their devices. “Just about everything tech-related in the district is made possible thanks to levy dollars,” said Scott McDaniel, the district’s director of technology. “Without it, both classroom and remote learning would look very different.” Learn more at
