1:1 Chromebook Workshop - Freshmen and Sophomore Parents

BMRSD has approved the roll-out of chromebooks to all Freshmen and Sophomore students (beginning in January of 2017). The implementation of a 1:1 program creates a learning environment where students have continuous access to technology, leading to increased academic achievement.

BMRSD's commitment to continued research and review by administrators, teachers, and support for families will extend to professional development and workshops. We ask ALL FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORE PARENTS/GUARDIANS to attend a 1:1 Chromebook workshop held on December 7th (6:00-7:00pm) in the high school auditorium.

 

We will share the following:

*Vision and Beliefs about Learning

*Chromebook as a Learning Tool

*Insurance Options

*Safety and Proper Care

*Required parent/students forms

*Usability of Chromebooks, APPS, and Google features


 
 

What are my next steps as a Guardian/ Parent?

 

Step 1: All Parents need to read the BMRSD Technology Program Policy and Procedure Agreement with their student.
