1:1 Pilot

The Oneida City School District is planning a 1:1 Chromebook Pilot as part of our District Instructional Technology Plan (one Chromebook : one student). With the use of technology, we encourage students and teachers to experience, communicate, collaborate and create in ways that traditional textbooks and curriculum alone can't provide. Technology is a part of our culture and continues to be embedded as a regular part of the process of how our students learn.  

We are excited to share that we will begin the first phase of the 1:1 Chromebook Pilot at the beginning of second semester for a select group of 10th grade classes. Students in the classes listed in the FAQ on the back page of this letter will be provided with their own Chromebooks to use throughout the school day and at home. It is our goal to continue providing devices to additional grade levels during the 2018-2019 school year and beyond.

Students in the pilot will participate in a short orientation where they will learn about Chromebook expectations and procedures at school and at home. Shortly thereafter, Chromebooks will be delivered to students to use for the duration of the school year. In June, Chromebooks will be collected for inventory and maintenance.

A 1:1 User Guide and Handbook and answers to common questions about the program have been posted to the district’s Technology website www.oneidacsd.org > Departments > Technology > 1:1.  

Additionally, it is highly encouraged that you attend a 1:1 Parent and Community Information Night on Monday, January 29th at 5:30 pm in the HS Auditorium where we will share more about the program and answer questions.

Attached please find a 1:1 Student & Parent Device Agreement. This form serves as an acknowledgement and understanding of expectations and procedures for the program. Please complete it with your child and return it to the High School Main Office.

This is an exciting step for our district and our students, and it would not be possible without the support of our teachers, administrators, Board of Education, and the Oneida City School District community.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions.

Sincerely, 

Genevieve Brauner, Administrator for Technology and Special Programs

Brian Gallagher, Oneida High School Principal 

Mary-Margaret Zehr, Superintendent
