7-10 is Going 1:1!!
This is the image for the news article titled 7-10 is Going 1:1!!We are excited to announce that we are continuing our our 1 to 1 Chromebook deployment for grades 7-10 this coming October! 1:1 refers to one device for every one student. The 1:1 Learning Initiative will equip all PCSD 1st-12th grade students with their own computing device by the year 2022 and is being funded through Smart Schools Bond Act funds and the local school district budget.

We began our rollout with 11-12th graders at the Jr/Sr High School along with take home privileges. Since the upperclassmen rollout went smoothly, and we have new instructional initiatives beginning early this school year, 7-10th grade students will also be assigned a Chromebook along with a charger and a carry case beginning October 15th! Chromebooks will go home every night and are expected to come back to school everyday fully charged.

In order to help everyone understand our goals and answer the many questions that families may have, we've set up a 1:1 Chromebook Learning Initiative website that includes FAQ, the various policies associated with the new initiative, and also a number of Tech Tools documents to help to better utilize the various tools found on our Chromebooks. This site can be found on our Pembroke webpage, pembrokecsd.org, and also at shorturl.at/aqSV3.

We would like to invite you and your students to a 1:1 Deployment Parent/Student Night o give everyone a chance to find out more about the Learning Initiative, to ask questions, and also to sign and submit the Device User Agreement. We are planning to have this meeting on Thursday, September 26th, 2019 at 6:30pm in the Jr/Sr HS Library. 

Devices for the 7th-10th graders will be distributed beginning October 5 during the school day. At this time, as long as a signed Device User Agreement is on hand, students will receive their Chromebooks.

We look forward to this exciting opportunity for our students! If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Christie Maisano, Director of Technology, at 585-599-4525 Ext. 1999.
