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.”

  • Is my child’s device filtered?

    Posted by:

    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 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.
