1:1 Program

Students at table with iPads

Stott Elementa
ry began our 1:1 device program five years ago with every students being issued an iPad mini.

Last spring, our school realized that we would need to begin to refresh our 1:1 device program. As with all technology, our iPads were beginning to age and we knew that we would need to start updating the devices in order to stay current. We looked at several factors including the ways that students use their devices as well as cost of purchasing new devices. As a result, we made the decision to move to chromebooks for our students in grades 4,5 and 6. This decision was made based on financial reasons (chromebooks-$173 vs. iPad $294) and the technology needs of intermediate elementary students. Students in grades Kindergarten through third grade will still have iPads and we will continue our work to upgrade the iPads throughout the next two years.

As with the iPads, chromebooks will be checked out to individual students for the school year  and students will be allowed to take them home for homework use after school.

Over the summer, the Information Security team implemented a new home web-filtering tool.  The GlobalProtect VPN solution supports both Chrome and iPad devices while students  are connected to the internet away from school. 

General Information for families:
Students need to connect to their home WiFi network prior to connecting to the GlobalProtect VPN 

Students will not be able to access the Internet until they have connected to the GlobalProtect VPN

Students will use the same login information used to access school/classroom assignments and resources

Student filtering at home will be the same as it is when the student is at school
Students will continue to receive a block page notice when a website for their grade level is blocked or if it is blocked per district policy.
