Our Connected Classroom: 1-1 Chromebooks for 6-12th Grade

“We are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist … using technologies that haven't been invented … in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet.”  Quote
Why Chromebooks?
This is a technology-rich world, and students are immersed in digital technology in their out-of-school lives. With greater access to real-time information & digital learning resources, students can experience higher levels of motivation and engagement with their learning.
 
Our campus is fully wireless, and students will be able to access the internet for research and projects from anywhere on campus. In addition, our teachers have participated in extensive staff development to ensure sound, research-based integration of this exciting technology.
 
Highest Potential

Receiving A Chromebook                 

Involvement in the one-to-one program is not required, but we highly encourage participation because the Chromebooks will be used extensively in the classroom. There is no initial cost to parents or guardians, but as with all school-issued materials and equipment, the student is responsible for the care of the Chromebook.                                                                             

Parents and students must complete a Chromebook Agreement Form outlining responsibilities and care of the device. Once the agreement form is on file, students and parents will be contacted to receive a Chromebook device and charger.

The devices are covered under an accidental damage coverage purchased by the district, but students will be assessed a $30 handling fee each time the device must be fixed. The coverage does not cover loss or theft. But, for your convenience and ease of mind, we are able to offer you an affordable insurance protection option from an outside third-party vendor for theft. If you decide to purchase insurance, you can find more information at this link: Insurance

Please check out the graphic below for great tips for students in managing their device. In the event that a Chromebook needs repair, students will need to complete the following form and return the damaged device to Mr. Tobler in the Media Center. A 'loaner' device will be issued temporarily.
