The goal of OneBerkeley Connects, a one-to-one digital learning initiative, is to support every student in their educational journey by providing them with a digital device to be used both at school and at home. Berkeley County School District provides relevant 21st century tools that will empower all students for success. The infusion of technology in teaching and learning ignites a passion for innovation, personal growth, and promotes the pursuit of world class knowledge and skills as outlined in the Profile of a South Carolina Graduate.
Hanahan High School students will receive their devices after Labor Day in the fall of 2019.
