Summer Chromebook Repair

Over the summer students may turn in their Chromebooks for repair, restoring it to optimal condition for the fall. Unlike during the school year, repair loaners are not distributed during the summer. Families may submit their Chromebook for repair on Tuesday or Thursday mornings between 7:30am and noon at the 2nd floor office of the high school (across from the high school library and media center). The repair cycle takes between two to three weeks, and you will be notified when the device is ready.

We encourage families to do this early in the summer rather than later.

Chromebook Ordering for New Students and Rising 5th Graders

Over the summer parents order a Chromebook for students new to the district or rising 5th graders. An orientation for parents and students will be provided during August device pick up dates (to be announced in early August). Below is an overview of the program.

Vision
The goal of our 21st Century teaching and learning initiative is to thoughtfully leverage a 1:1 learning environment to support learner engagement, ongoing formative and summative assessment, curricular articulation, and differentiation.
The National Educational Technology Standards emphasize the importance of collaboration, communication, and critical thinking coupled with information, media, and technical literacies. The use of Google Apps for Education and Chromebooks allows students to develop mastery of those standards and skills in a secure, managed environment to students and teachers.

1:1 Program
All students in grades 5-12 are issued a district Chromebook.

Families can participate in our Chromebook program through a Technology Fee of $57/year.
Participation includes:
Ability to bring the device home evenings and vacations.
Three year accidental damage coverage (screens, drops, liquids, etc.) including battery replacement and full device replacement if necessary.
Ownership of the device after three years (unlocked from management). For juniors and seniors we have options to just pay the annual fee.

Families who qualify for the national free and reduced lunch program can pay $20 per student per year.
Students opting out of the fee must pick up and drop off their chromebook at a designated location at the start and end of school, and are responsible for any device damage.

The primary purpose of these tools is to support 21st Century teaching and learning, and scaffold for digital responsibility. Chromebooks have content filtering on and off campus, and elementary students are only able to send and receive email with their teachers. During the August orientation we will provide additional guidance for parents and establish expectations with students.

Program fee
Fee’s can be processed easily online and distributed monthly. You can visit http://bit.ly/udsd1to1 to pay online or download the paper form to pay by check. The site includes additional information, a FAQ, and contact information for any questions.
