With the purpose of continuing to support district goals around Growth, Innovation, and Care, Loveland Elementary School (LES) will be transitioning to a 1:1 Chromebook environment for the 2018-19 school year. Starting in August, all LES students will have access to a Chromebook in all classrooms, with all third and fourth grade core content classes receiving their own, dedicated Chromebook cart. The focus of this rollout is to provide all LES students access to digital instructional tools and resources throughout the school day which support student-centered instruction and personalized learning opportunities.
"This is game-changing for our teachers to continue the work they have already started in transporting our students beyond the traditional classroom with the assistance of technology,” said LES Principal Jennifer Forren. “We are ready for this incredible learning opportunity."
“We are excited to continue to grow and develop the opportunities that our students have to create, collaborate and pursue their passions in our classrooms,” said Loveland Director of Technology and Innovation David Knapp. “Access to Chromebooks promotes additional opportunities for teaching and instruction, and for our students to explore their world and enrich their learning experience. These tools are simply one more resource that our amazing teachers have in their toolkit when it comes to growing each and every Tiger.”
Chromebooks will remain at school, with students being assigned a device in each of the classes. Through the school, Chromebooks will be available for take home for those families that may require assistance in accessing technology resources at home. LES Tiger families will not see any additional fees as this plan only adds to the existing process for utilizing technology while at LES.
