We’re excited to roll out a 1:1 technology initiative this fall for our students in 3rd-8th grades. This has been something the district has been exploring for several years; this fall, voters supported the request to bring this opportunity to our students and we are very thankful.
Since the bond election, we have been working out the details of what a 1:1 environment looks like at our various grade levels. For our upper elementary, each 3rd, 4th and 5th grader 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, students will be assigned a Chromebook that they can take home. This Chromebook will be assigned to them throughout their middle school years. This is a big responsibility but we will help prepare them and their families for this new measure.
We will be holding parent meetings to go over the guidelines, expectations and handbook details for this new device. We will also answer any questions parents might have about the implementation. Students will attend meetings at the start of the year to go over these same details.
