1:1 Chromebook Program
Our school has adopted a 1:1 Chromebook Program which will offer all students in grades 6-12 the opportunity to be issued a Chromebook for the school year to be used both at school and home. The advantage of a 1:1 program is that students’ learning opportunities are extended beyond the classroom by increasing the students' access to information from multiple sources. Teachers have the opportunity to deliver instruction in a variety of ways to meet the different learning needs of all students and actively engage students in taking more ownership for learning. While the district has placed security measures in place to assure that students follow the district’s acceptable use policy, parents and guardians are expected to assure the student’s appropriate use of the device at home.
Chromebook Permission Forms and Insurance Payment
Parents and students are asked to take time during Open House to come to the gym to sign the " Acceptable Use Policy " which will give students permission to receive the Chromebook on August 20th or 21st. We also highly recommend that parents purchase "Chromebook Insurance" for $50.00 which will cover the cost of up to 3 repairs or 1 replacement in the event the device cannot be repaired. Without the purchase of the insurance, students will be responsible for all costs for repairs or replacement should something happen to the device. Insurance payments will also be collected at Open House when forms are signed and submitted.
