MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — There’s good news for Berkeley County students because technology — devices as well as hundreds of Wi-Fi hotspots and other internet connectivity options — will be available to them when the new school year begins Sept. 8.
Superintendent of Schools Patrick K. Murphy credited the district’s technology department for having worked since early summer to ensure students would have needed devices.
“Because of their planning, purchasing and deployment, Berkeley County Schools is ready to launch both computer and internet devices for staff and students for the Return to Learn school year,” Murphy said in an email.
“All of our students will have a device for use in either the brick or click pathway,” he said.
The district’s back-to-school plan includes two options — in person (brick) and remote (click) — for instruction, five days per week.
Students who will be attending in person will return to school
