  • Student Chromebooks 1:1 grades 5-10 next year
    Beginning next year, students in grade 5 - 10 will be assigned a chromebook provided for by the school district.   Students will use the chromebook in school and at home to support their learning. They will also charge it at home every night.  The chromebooks will be kept by the school during the summer but each student will receive their same chromebook back the following year.  For the 2020-21 school year, all students grades 5 - 12 will have assigned devices.  

      Students in grades 3-4 will also be assigned a chromebook next year but the device will remain at school and not go home with the student. The district has already been purchasing chromebooks each year for several years. This change is not a change in purchase quantity but a change from cart storage to assignment to each student.   More information will be sent to parents later this year to help you prepare your student for possessing a chromebook.   This model of distribution is common in public schools and allows for an equal expectation by teachers in student computer access.

  • Preschool Screening Tool

    Children develop skills and reach milestones at their own pace. How is your child doing?
    The Grafton School District offers a comprehensive and confidential screening tool to help guide and keep track of your child’s growth and development between the ages of 3 and 5. We encourage ​all​ preschool aged children to be screened.
    Your questionnaires will be scored and you will be contacted to discuss the results and any suggested activities you can do at home. If there are concerns with the screening results, families will be offered a free comprehensive evaluation to determine if additional services are warranted through the school district. Evidence shows that early intervention is key and the sooner you address a developmental delay or special need, the better chances your child has of long-term success. Please complete both questionnaires below:
