Clayton County Schools Expands Partnership with Boxlight
Plans include integration with G-Suite and the district’s “Extending Learning Beyond the Classroom” project
Lawrenceville, GA, June 2, 2020 – Boxlight Corporation (NASDAQ:BOXL), a leading provider of interactive technology solutions for the global education market, today announced that Clayton County Public Schools (“CCPS”), Georgia’s fifth-largest school district, will continue to work with the company’s Professional Services division, Boxlight-EOS Education.
The partnership will provide expanded professional training services and programs to the district during the 2020-21 academic year. Boxlight-EOS’ comprehensive online, onsite, and consultancy training for CCPS educators within its Mimio whole-class learning solution will expand to include integration with G-Suite, the district’s Extending Learning Beyond the Classroom (ELBC) platform. Additionally, Boxlight-EOS will support CCPS in preparing teachers for the district-wide Chromebook deployment. The professional training related to the ELBC deployment and G Suite is a CCPS initiative to strengthen student achievement and engagement with both face-to-face and online learning.
In Spring 2018, Boxlight was the chosen solution for an $18 million digital classroom refresh project in CCPS; to install its innovative Mimio classroom solution in approximately 3,200 classrooms; comprised of 38 elementary, 15 middle and 12 high schools. The installation was completed at the end of February 2019. Since that time, Boxlight has continued to partner with the district to support educators and administrators in the effective integration of technology to support standards and instructional priorities.
“CCPS and Boxlight have taken our partnership to another level in response to continuity of learning requirements due to school closures,” said Boxlight-EOS CEO Dr. Aleksandra Leis. “The EOS program will continue to provide Clayton County Public Schools’ teachers with the training and ongoing support to help them learn the skills and tools they need to feel comfortable and confident delivering lessons in every possible scenario; in the classroom or online.”
