Northwestern Community Unit School District No. 2 in Palmyra, Ill., is small in student numbers (just 350 total in Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade) and large in the geo-graphic area it serves (140 square miles in the northwestern part of Macoupin County). In addition, 50 percent of its students are from low-income households, many without computers. Despite these challenges, Northwestern has seen an increase in student engagement and a decrease in discipline problems, thanks in large part to the addition of hundreds of tablets and laptops.
