1:1 Program

What is the Central Valley 1:1 Program

The 1:1 iPad Program gives Central Valley students a unique opportunity to learn using the creativity and productivity tools they will need in college and the workforce. The use of an iPad augments the curriculum for these students by providing opportunities for different learning styles and teaching options.
