School district chose Google Chromebooks

When David Andrade became the CIO for the Bridgeport Public Schools District in Connecticut last year, he knew he was in for a big challenge.

Only a few old desktop PCs were located in the district’s public schools, and his limited budget made it difficult to place a big order for new computers. Being in a working-class community, where 95% of the students receive free or reduced-cost lunches, most students didn’t have access to computers outside of school, either.

So when he was asked to bring more computers to Bridgeport public schools, Andrade immediately thought of Google’s Chromebook.
