After the first of the year, Lincoln and Liberty Middle Schools will begin distributing 1:1 devices for our middle school students and we couldn’t be more excited about the next step in District #7’s journey of implementing technology as a tool to improve the way in which we serve students. This will allow students to have immediate access to information via their own computers and will engage them in additional critical thinking, collaboration, and communication activities.
- Before your student can receive their 1:1 device, both the student and their parent/guardian must read the attached Student Use Agreement and then sign the Agreement and Signature Form (6:235-AP3, E1) outlined in Board Policy 6:235. Students will be able to turn in the signed agreement during social studies class anytime. However, please have the signed form turned in by Monday, December 13.
- A hard copy of the agreement and signature form will also be given to students on Tuesday, December 7 to bring home.
Each device will come with a protective case and charger and will be used in both the classroom and home for educational purposes. Please remember that you and your child are responsible for their device. As detailed in the Device Student Use Agreement, if a student’s device is lost or damaged, the District may assess the parent(s)/guardian(s) a charge to cover the replacement or repair.
We look forward to working with you as we embark on this wonderful new opportunity. If you have any questions, please contact your building principal.
