The 1-to-1 Chromebook Initiative
In an effort to continue to provide innovative instruction to students, our middle school has adopted a 1-to-1 initiative through which all students are provided a district-issued chrome book for use both in school and at home. Our students in grades 1 through 5 have one to one Chromebook access, but do not take the devices home. Students in Pre-School and Kindergarten have access to developmentally appropriate technology in their classrooms so that every student has access to a device should they need it.
