KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Students at Holston Middle School will receive new MacBook computers this week.

Holston Middle School is one of 11 schools in the Knox County School System participating in a pilot School Technology Challenge program, which provides personalized learning environments for students and teachers.

The computers are meant to transform and personalize classroom instruction and student academic success.

Students and their parents will learn about the policies and procedures of proper use of the technology, care of their devices, expectations for proper Internet usage, as well as recommendations for parents to help students use the new computers at home.

On September 18 and 19, each Holston Middle School student was assigned a MacBook and, along with their parents, will login and create a password. Students at Holston Middle School will use their MacBooks throughout the school year for in-class and at-home study.
