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. In order to protect the chromebooks, we are asking families to purchase a chromebook case prior to the device being sent home. ‚ÄčFamilies may purchase the cases on their own our order through Stott by Friday, August 25.

Here is the link to the order form.

Cases should fit Lenovo N22 or N23 models. Check with Mrs. Ostwald to find out which model will be assigned to your student.

If your child is on the F/R program and you choose to pay for the chromebook cover,  it will be collected as a donation.Thank you!
