This belief has led to wise investment in technology that provides a scalable infrastructure and hardware, software and peripheral devices that pay the greatest dividends for the students and teachers in the classroom and beyond.

Northmont City Schools
Northmont City Schools continues the tradition and heritage of academic, athletic and fine arts excellence that began over 50 years ago. Northmont City Schools is located in northern Montgomery County (just north of Dayton, Ohio) and is the essential element that blends the municipalities of Clayton, Englewood, Union, Phillipsburg and a portion of Clay Township together into a community that supports quality education. The district encompasses 44 square miles, includes one early learning center, five elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school and serves around 5000 students.
Technology has been a part of the educational process for many years. Around 10 years ago, the district's Strategic Planning committee set a goal for the district to increase technology devices that were available to students and ultimately becoming a One to One district in the future. This began with the high school adopting iPads for a pilot group of students. Several years later, the high school then expanded to become completely One to One with iPads for all students. A few years later, in the spring of 2017, a Technology Review Team was formed to put together a vision of how technology should impact student learning across grade levels. They researched and developed a plan for both technology expansion and instructional shifts that would happen. In January of 2018, they proposed the district move to One to One for all grades using iPads. The board approved this recommendation and the district fully implemented this beginning in the 2018-2019 school year.
At Rolling Hills, all students are immersed in technology-embedded learning environments that foster creativity and innovation. Our goal is to facilitate student-centered collaboration that supports them in becoming critical thinkers and problem solvers. Rolling Hills’ educators push the boundary of expectations and develop within their students the skills needed to become contributors to today’s society. Since 2015, our 1:1 device initiative has given students access to the world far beyond the walls of the classroom.
At Rolling Hills each student is given an iPad, each teacher has an iPad and MacBook, and each classroom is equipped with an Apple TV. Use of these devices has transformed the learning environment as students regularly participate in real world learning experiences that develop college and career readiness skills. Since the start of our 1:1 device roll out, the creativity and innovation of students has blossomed into the most authentic learning experiences we have ever seen.
