We are excited to inform you
that the Tri-Village Local School District will continue to move forward with
our 1:1 initiative in the 2018-2019 school year. The District recognizes that
education, much like the world, is changing exponentially and our goal is to
equip our students and staff with useful tools for learning. We hope this initiative will bring the 21st
Century to the forefront, as well as engage your children in additional
critical thinking, collaboration and communication activities.
In 2015, The Tri-Village
School District began purchasing and utilizing Chromebooks for students to
access digital content in the classroom. Since then, the district has
purchased, received grant funding and in kind donations to add an additional
500 Chromebooks to our K-12 campus. Our
staff and students continue to feel the benefits of incorporating devices in
daily instruction and are continuing to grow in their learning about best practices
of blending the traditional classroom with digital learning.
For these reasons and more,
our 1:1 initiative has continued to evolve. Beginning in August 2018, all K-6
classrooms will be equipped with at least 20 Chromebooks for instructional use
and every 7-12 on campus student will be assigned a Chromebook, meaning each
student will have access to and be responsible for a Chromebook throughout the
school day. For now, students will be using this device in school only but as a
staff we will continue to evaluate the needs of students when deciding about
future use outside of school.
