Future Ready Promise Schools
The district has embarked on a long-term and sustainable effort to provide all students with rich learning opportunities and the technology needed to better prepare them to achieve in today's world. 2017-18 was our inaugural year in moving towards a 1 : 1 student to device, digital Learning model for all schools. It is anticipated that implementation will take five phases to complete. Phases were recommended based on site's initial readiness to move digital learning forward.
Future Ready Promise Schools 1 : 1 Program is made possible by Measure P, passed by the Pomona Community in November 2016.
50 million of the 300 million dollars from Measure P is being earmarked for a short-term technology bond to purchase electronic devices, such as Chromebooks and laptops for students and teachers, as well as software and network infrastructure to ensure PUSD students can have a 'connected' learning experience. Giving students access to such equipment is necessary to ensure students are prepared for college, career and life in the digital world in which they belong. It also provides extended learning opportunities for things such as robotics and computer science. Measure P allows students to be able to do more hands-on, project-based learning while leveraging digital tools.
Measure P is being used to improve student access to modern technology that will help to engage and deepen their learning opportunities both at school and home.
Today 1:1 computing initiatives that seek to provide laptop computers and Internet access to students for use at home and school are expanding rapidly across the globe. These initiatives can help facilitate the transition in schools from occasional, supplemental use of computers for instruction to more frequent, integral use of technology across a multitude of settings. Ubiquitous, 24/7 access makes it possible for students to access a wider array of resources to support their learning, to communicate with peers and their teachers, and to become fluent in their use of the technological tools of the 21st century workplace. Being able to take computers home further expands students’ access, facilitates students keeping their work organized, and makes the computer a more ‘personal’ device.
