This report was commissioned by Henrico County Public Schools to evaluate the first implementation of its elementary classroom computer initiative. It describes the first year of the initiative and is the first formative evaluation report. The complete evaluation project will span five years. This report is descriptive only, however, subsequent reports will be more inferential in nature, e.g., examining the impact of the initiative on student performance.

This report focuses on how the implementation has been perceived by teachers, students, and school division personnel. The primary focus was on teacher perceptions of the implementation phase of the initiative. The study involved surveying teachers and interviewing division personnel. Several focus groups were conducted as well and some of the comments support findings discussed in this report. Additionally, recommendations are presented to optimize the effectiveness of the initiative as well as assist the division in future implementations.
