Welcome to the Henry County Public Schools' site dedicated to supporting students, parents, and teachers with 1-to-1 learning in the district.
The name Power to Learn (P2L) was chosen to reflect both the electronic/digital nature of a 1-to-1 initiative and the district's mission statement, "Empowering leaders and life-long learners for an ever-changing world."
What is 1-to-1?
1-to-1, 1to1, 1-1, 1:1, one-to-one ... all of these are used to describe a learning environment where every student has their own dedicated device for their learning needs.
Technology is ubiquitously intertwined in most everyone's daily personal and professional lives. Many students have learned how to harness technology to enhance their personal lives by the time they reach 6th grade, yet many of these same students still struggle to use technology effectively in school.
By having access to their own device, anytime and anywhere, students will be able to practice the technological skills they will be asked to demonstrate in their future careers.
In addition, by providing all students with the same tools for learning, HCPS believes that the overall chance of academic success increases for all students.
Who gets a Device? What Device?
Grades 6 through 12 will be issued a Chromebook the 2017-2018 school year and beyond.
