SPRINGBORO, Ohio (WDTN) – Some students in the Springboro Community School District will be using electronic books for several courses.

The district is adding e-books to the curriculum for students in grades six through twelve.

They will use e-books for math, language arts and foreign languages.

“It has been our goal to see our schools provide the most up to date options for education and technology, and we took huge steps toward creating a 21st Century learning platform last year through several successful pilot programs,” said Todd Petrey, Superintendent. “Updated curriculum was needed in many academic areas, and we made sure to put the pieces in place to be able to offer e-books and the advantages that come with fully integrating technology in the classroom in time for this curriculum adoption.”

The district tested out the electronic books last year, spending $1.1 million on that first phase. It says more technology and e-books allows for more efficient ways to learn.

Students can learn in the classroom during the day, but still have access to their books, teachers’ assignments and notes on the internet during the evening.
