Westwood High School students are starting the year with free Google Chromebooks, a program that began in the 2012-13 school year in four classrooms, and after a task force of teachers visited four school districts that have implemented a similar arrangement. Westwood officials said they chose Chromebooks because the Internet-only, laptop-style device is user-friendly. Westwood administrators and educators have been contemplating the change since 2005, but it was in 2011 that four teachers agreed to participate in the trial. While each student has been given a Chromebook, the devices will be returned to the school at graduation.
