1:1 Technology Program
Devices provided for all students
We enhance learning with technology by providing a Chromebook to all students in grades 3-12 and an iPad to all students in PreK-2. Students can use these devices in the classroom and at home for school work and learning.
Technology in our schools
Preparing students for a digital world
Our district provides technology to support learning and teaches students to use a variety of devices, software and web applications. Each of our schools has:
- a computer for the teacher in each classroom
- a webcam and display in each classroom
- Internet and wireless connectivity
We also feature special offerings for specific programs:
- CTE and TechApps labs (some middle schools and high schools)
- iPad carts/trays in classrooms
- eSports labs
- robotics labs
Check with your campus to see what technology is available for your student. Students may also bring their own device to school if they have one (see the Bring Your Own Device policy below).
