Berkeley County Schools Is 1:1
The district-wide one-to-one technology device initiative is the largest of its kind in Berkeley County, and gives our students a distinct advantage by using tools of tomorrow to enhance their learning today.
We’re committed to incorporating this 1:1 technology into our curriculum for our students as we prepare them to be 21st Century citizens and learners. Through our 1:1 initiative, we’ll succeed in our mission to provide each student a “real-world education that is engaging, thought-provoking and culturally diverse.”

Yes, Berkeley County Schools devices are filtered both while at school and at home. Although no web filter is 100% effective, we work actively to keep monitor and maintain this software. In addition to filtering, we encourage you to monitor device usage while at home. For example, devices should always be used in a common area under adult supervision. The devices do not require access to home internet wireless for use.
Both iPad & Chromebook apps and settings are managed from both the school and district level using a third party device management interface.
Yes, each school is required by West Virgnia Department of Education to ensure that 100% of students are instructed on both cyber safety and cyber bullying. Berkeley County Schools uses resources in Common Sense Media to accomplish this instruction.
