Northwest Middile School    Verizon Digital Promise


    In the spring of 2017, Northwest Middle School, along with three other middle schools in Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools, was chosen as part of Cohort 5 to receive a Verizon Digital Promise Initiative. This transforming initiative has been providing students technology and skills to succeed in the digital world since 2014. Currently, in the 2018-2019 school year, there are 85,000 students, 5,500 teachers, and 100 schools that are impacted through this program. The four main components of the program are Always Available Access, Professional Learning, STEM Opportunties and Research. Each student and staff has an iPAD that includes 5GB data monthly. Our teachers are participating in professional development to support students using mobile technology. Teachers are supported so our students can continue to become life long learners, creators and problem solvers in a digital community.
