Columbus City Schools will purchase 20,000 Chromebooks for students to study virtually this school year.

The purchase is in partnership with the city of Columbus and will cost more than $7 million.

Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon confirmed part of that money is coming from the $157 million in CARES ACT funding given to the city in May in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Leaders said the Chromebooks are just part of what they are providing to help students with schoolwork.

The Columbus City School District is also working to provide hotspots and internet access to students for their online instructions.
