Students are receiving Google Chromebooks to use at school and at home through Connect2Learn
Through the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District’s new Connect2Learn program, each student in the district will receive his/her own Google Chromebook this fall. Parents are receiving information from their child’s school this summer with more information about the program as well as Chromebook distribution dates.
When the Chromebooks are distributed, parents/guardians will be asked to sign the agreement and pay the mobile device insurance fee, which totals $30. Families may review the Connect2Learn handbook and agreement prior to enrollment by visiting http://connect2learn.lsr7.org/handbook/.
Through Connect2Learn, each student from kindergarten through high school will receive a Chromebook by Labor Day 2015.
This Chromebook rollout supports school district priorities and is an important step toward further developing engaged learners and meeting the district’s mission — We prepare each student for success in life. Additional access to digital devices increases equity among all students and helps support the way students learn and teachers teach. Within this innovative learning environment, students can also be more engaged in the learning experience.
Through Connect2Learn, students will have access to this powerful learning tool both at home and at school, regardless of family income or ability to purchase the digital devices.
As part of this one-to-one initiative, R-7 schools will continue to provide guidance and supervision to help students learn to appropriately and safely use technology tools. Instruction on digital citizenship and proper use of technology will continue to occur at each school and every grade level. In addition, families are encouraged to reinforce these lessons at home by using resources provided on the “Parent Info” page of the district’s Connect2Learn webpage at http://connect2learn.lsr7.org/.
This Connect2Learn website features a popular FAQs page that is updated as additional questions about the program are submitted. This FAQs web page also provides the opportunity for individuals to recommend new questions. Twitter followers are encouraged to keep up with information about the rollout at the hashtag #r7connect2learn.
