Chromebook information for rising 5th graders and new students grades 5-12

We are excited to welcome you to our 21st Century Teaching and Learning Initiative, with a 1:1 program beginning in 5th Grade.1to1 Program

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 $70/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).

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. 

Program fee

The fee 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.
