Computers and Technology
William Penn has one computer lab and most classrooms have 3-5 computers. All classrooms are equipped with a Smartboard. In addition to the lab, there are Chromebook carts for every 2 classes in grades 2-6 to use for writing/research/productivity activities, which allows greater flexibility to track math, language arts, and reading progress. We are adding new Chromebooks every year.
