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 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.
Each school has a systems operator and/or technology integration specialist that can assist with any questions about your student’s device.
