1 to 1 Chromebook Initiative

The 1 to 1 Chromebook Initiative places a device in the hands of every student, Grades 2-12. This allows us to eliminate most computer labs while increasing computer access to every student in the district in addition to reducing paper waste. Students in second through sixth grade will each have access to a Chromebook in their classroom via a Chromebook cart. Students in seventh through twelfth grade will have a Chromebook assigned to them that they are expected to transport from home to school each day. 

Highlights of the 1 to 1 Chromebook Initiative include:
 

  • A Chromebook for every student (Grades 2-12)
  • Google Workspace for Education accounts for every student (Grades PK-12)
  • Palo Alto and Securly filtering for web safety and security

 

Chromebook Security

Chrome devices use the first operating system designed with ongoing threats in mind. It uses the principle of "defense in depth" to provide multiple layers of protection, so if any layer is "bypassed", others are still in effect. While it is always important to take precautions to protect your data, Chrome devices let you breathe just a little bit easier. Instead of teachers spending precious class time trying to get the technology up and running, the security is built-in and updates itself without relying on IT support. When used with Gmail’s built-in email virus and spam protection, Chrome devices are fast and secure tools that require little upkeep to maintain their high level of security.
