ABOUT OUR 1:1

Overview

After a successful pilot during Spring 2018, and in accordance with current studies, the Future Ready Schools program, and our own community-created Strategic Plan, the Westwood Regional School District launched a 1:1 Chromebook initiative in September of 2018, whereby a district-owned Chromebook was issued to every student in grades 8-12.

As a result of this initiative, students always have a device with them for anytime-anywhere learning. Teachers are able to plan and deliver lessons more effectively, knowing that every student has a reliable, district-managed Chromebook in his or her possession at all times.

For years, the Westwood School District has been steadily preparing for and evolving towards the realization of 21st-century digital classrooms in order to prepare our students for the workplace of the future. This 1:1 chromebook initiative represents yet another large stride in that direction. Having used cart-bound Chromebooks for the past 3 years, we feel that our teachers and students are now fully ready to take this logical next step and realize the educational benefits that a 1:1 program entails.

Please use the links below and the pages along the top of the screen to find pertinent information about all aspects of this initiative.
