Chromebook Implementation Update

Dear Harmony Families:

In the beginning of last school year (2013-14), Harmony Public Schools provided every student in grades 6 thru 12 with a Chromebook device. Students had access to Chromebooks 24/7, with the capacity to access a Chromebook both during the school day and at home. This year’s 1:1 program represents a change from what was implemented before, with a move away from the take-home model for grades 6th and 7th, and instead use Chromebooks in-school as classroom sets. Grades 8 thru 12 will continue with the take-home model.

With 1:1 in-school model, we believe that students will experience a more focused and guided technology use in the classrooms and teachers will be able to facilitate technology integrated student learning in a more powerful and meaningful way. Chromebooks will still be used primarily for Custom Day classes (plus 5 Math & ELA lab hours) where students work on their personalized learning plans via adaptive instructional software and in other core classes during project based learning (PBL) activities. The school will not charge any fees to students/families for in-school use of Chromebooks.

Our school is excited about the new implementation of the 1:1 technology program in 6th and 7th grade, and the endless possibilities of teaching and learning in a connected world. If you have any questions regarding the 1:1 program please reach out to your school administrators.
