1:1 Chromebook Connect

Jeffco 2020 VisionDRHS is committed to preparing students to be college and career ready; communication, creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking skills are essential to thrive in the 21st century. This is why we are launching a 1:1 Chromebook initiative for each student to have their own device starting with the 2017-18 school year. All students in 9th grade will be able to purchase a Chromebook from the school to use for educational purposes. Each year after this 9th graders will be required to have a device until all grades have 1:1 devices by the year 2020. Having ongoing access to technology will allow our students to consistently practice and apply those 21st century skills, and prepare them for a variety of post-secondary options.

Classroom management

One of the biggest concerns for parents and teachers is ensuring the safety of students online and making sure students are actively engaged in class. Chromebooks that are purchased through the school will have software that allows teachers to monitor all student screens, turn all screens off in order to minimize distractions, and project student work to the front of the room. See video for a demonstration. The LanSchool tool allows teachers to monitor students and manage distractions.
