Unfortunately, there was a lack of use with this educational technology. The solution? A district-wide investment in interactive displays in each classroom.

Posted by Boxlight on Thu, Jun 10, 2021

Central Kitsap School District (Silverdale, WA) is a large district with 12 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 high schools, a secondary school (grades 6 – 12), and a K-12 community school serving over 11,500 students.
