Tiger One-to-World sign up
Posted Wednesday, April 22, 2015
A sincere thank you to those of you who took the time to provide feedback regarding the Tiger One-to-World initiative that we have planned for Loveland High School next year. This plan seeks to provide access to an electronic device to each and every one of our students in grades 9-12 while they are at school.
You spoke, we listened
Based on your feedback and the needs of our families, we have made some minor revisions to the plan that we think will greatly benefit our students. We would like to draw attention to a few important details:
● The One-to-World initiative focuses on a lease-to-own model through the Loveland City Schools that gives families the option of leasing a Chromebook from the district at a rate of $100 per year. This program will also provide an opportunity for any student who is need of a device due to financial restraints access on a daily basis.
● Benefits of the lease-to-own program include Loveland provided IT support and maintenance, while also providing loaner devices if maintenance on the device is required. All students participating in the lease-to-own program will also be provided a Chromebook case to provide additional security against damages.
● Although students are strongly encouraged to come to school equipped with an electronic learning device on a daily basis, they will not be required to bring a device. Please be advised, however, that the use of technology will be utilized in the classroom as a teaching and learning tool on a regular basis.
● Regardless of what grade your student is in at the high school, the lease-to-own program can be utilized. Although the standard model will give ownership of the device to the student at the conclusion of the third year of the lease, we also provide opportunities for families of incoming juniors and seniors to pay off the remaining balance of the device at the conclusion of the leasing period to obtain ownership.
Please refer to our Tiger One-to-World FAQ’s for more information regarding each of the topics above, as well as information that pertains to other aspects of the program.
We’ve decided to go with the Acer C740 model of Chromebook, based on the district’s great experience with the Acer brand thus far, as well as the rugged features of the new design. Interested in learning more about the C740? You can check out product details for the device here.
