Handbook / Information

Middle school and high school students need to review the Student Technology Handbook. Parents also need to sign a form in order for the Chromebook to be deployed to the student.
We rolled out the 1:1 technology initiative in the fall of 2018 for our students in 3rd-8th grades and it's been a wonderful experience and learning tool for our students. We extended 1:1 for 9th-12th grades and K-2nd grades in the fall of 2019. 
 
For our elementary schools, each student is assigned a Chromebook which remains at school, in their classrooms. Students go through digital citizenship lessons in addition to what they have already received through technology class and classroom use.

At the middle school and high school, students are assigned a Chromebook that they can take home (with signed permission and insurance.) This Chromebook will be assigned to them throughout their middle/high school years. This is a big responsibility but we will help prepare them and their families for this new measure.
Parents must attend a meeting, or watch an online video, and sign an agreement before a student is eligible to receive their Chromebook.
