Chevron Oronite Oak Point XYZ Network Contributes Technical Devices To Belle Chase High School
As a result of a contribution made by the Chevron Oronite Oak Point XYZ Network, Chromebook chargers, charging cables, and portable charging stations will be made available to all Belle Chasse High School (BCHS) classrooms.
The Plaquemines Parish School Board has implemented a 1:1 technology program for all students. The district provides a computer for every student to use at school and home to enhance sustainable academic curriculum which has helped during the pandemic and natural disasters. A hurdle that presented itself at the school was ensuring that devices are charged throughout the school day for student use. With the contribution of the universal chargers, each classroom will be able to have a charger that is stationary in each classroom for students to use. These devices will help alleviate the daily concern of battery failure during instruction and minimize disruptions. In addition to the chargers, USB C cables and portable charging stations were also purchased to help technically support curriculum needs. Teachers will sign for chargers, cables and charging stations at the school library when electrical outlets are unavailable for charging necessities.
“This contribution supports the Oronite Oak Point XYZ Network’s mission by engaging with the local high school to aid in the development of local leaders through education and ensuring students are provided equal opportunity in maximizing their potential,” said Shaun Sockwell, XYZ Network leader. The XYZ Network is a Chevron employee group built to foster diversity and inclusion while shaping the energy future by unlocking potential, amplifying voices, and building environments in which ideas can flourish.
