UFRSD Expanding 1 to 1 Chromebook Initiative – Join us – May 24th!

It is with great excitement that we share the news that next year’s 6th, 7th , 8th, 9th and 10th graders will be participating in our 1-to-1 Chromebook experience. Each of our 6th through 10 graders will be provided individual district-owned Chromebooks as a tool for learning during the 2016-2017 school year.

A Chromebook is a different breed of laptop. Fast, portable computers, they give students access to the web’s rich educational tools and resources. They run Chrome OS, an operating system developed by Google. Chromebooks are easy to manage and affordable include free Google Apps for Education (GAFE).

Most importantly, Chromebooks are a powerful tool for learning. Chromebooks provide students with a tool to collaborate, create, invent, research, share, investigate, evaluate, analyze and so much more.

The 2016-2017 6th-10th graders will be given the opportunity to use Chromebooks at school, at home, on weekends, during the school day…anytime, anywhere learning. We would like to invite you and our current 5th-9th grade students to an informational evening about our 1:1 initiative on Tuesday, May 24, 6:00 p.m. in the Allentown High School auditorium. More information about our program and some examples of how it can be used to enhance learning and communication for our students will be shared. Join us on May 24th!
