University Park Elementary has been working on a 1:1 (one-to-one) technology initiative pairing a personal computing device with each student. Upon the completion of the 2017-18 school year, we were able to offer web-enabled Chromebooks to every student in grades 1 through 6 (iPads are available for use in transitional kindergarten and kindergarten for use in the classroom, as well as in our state-of-the-art Innovation Lab).
Each device is web-enabled anywhere in our school. Students access district supported software as well as non-district supported software that has been carefully selected by teachers to support classroom learning. Parents will receive notification from the classroom teacher about non-district supported software and parental permission must be given prior to use.
Our 1:1 program gives our students a distinct advantage by giving them the tools of tomorrow to enhance their learning today.
