1:1 Technology Information

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're excited to roll this out for 9th-12th grades and K-2nd grades in the fall of 2019. 
 
For our elementary schools, each student will be assigned a Chromebook which will remain at school, in their classrooms. Students will 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 will be assigned a Chromebook that they can take home with the right paperwork. 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.

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. There will be parent meetings for information, questions and to fill out forms and pay insurance.
 
In place of attendance at a meeting, parents can also watch a video reviewing the information, requirements and guidelines. Check back soon for that link.
 
Some parents asked about soft carrying case. Here's a link to some carrying case options on Amazon.
