December 2016 Update

  • With excitement and anticipation, Lyons Central is looking forward to the launch of a 1:1 Chromebook initiative for all K-12 students beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. The School Board has approved the Smart Bond Money that will be used to launch this important educational initiative which supports district goals of preparing our students for a 21st Century World.

    As a part of this initiative, Chromebooks will be integrated throughout the district where students will be able to actively use these devices throughout the school year. This initiative continues our implementation of best practices in teaching and learning to prepare students for the research, communication, collaboration and creativity skills needed to be 21st Century learners. It is our hope that your student will use the device as a tool beyond school to support learning in other areas of interest.
