Norton Community Schools 7-12 Chromebook Information








Dear Parent,

We are excited for another year of providing the Norton Community High School  and Junior High students with Google Chromebooks.   The Chromebooks and the access they will provide to each student to the web will allow us to not only integrate more technology into your student’s learning experiences, it will also provide additional opportunities for students collaborate, communicate, create, and apply critical thinking skills in their learning.

In preparation for this year's Chromebook distribution, we have made several informational documents available for you on this website.   Some of these documents will be provided to your student in hardcopy form the day of the enrollment.  The following are some of the documents that are shared on the web page:

            ·         USD211 District Technology Acceptable Use Plan Revised 2016

            ·         USD211 Chromebook Expectations

                            USD211 Chromebook Expectations Student/Parent Signature Page

                             Chromebook Internet Acceptable Use Policy Signature Page

        

 As is the case with usage of any school equipment such as textbooks, music instruments, etc., you are responsible for any cost associated with the damage and/or loss of the device and responsible to return the device in good working order. 

Clearly we are making a move to have technology be an integral part of your student’s education and will require that your student have the appropriate technology at school to support his/her learning.  This is why we will not be allowing your student to opt out of receiving a Chromebook.  Every student will have been provided with the tools necessary to support the integration of technology into the learning process at Norton Community Schools.  In addition, having access to these devices has the potential to significantly impact the learning that can and will occur outside of our normal 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. school day.

Thank you in advance for your support of this significant learning initiative.
