One to World Chromebook Program information for the 2019-20 school year

Posted Thursday, May 9, 2019

Tiger One-to-World Logo
Current and future Loveland High School/Loveland Middle School Tigers:

It is once again time to provide you information on our One to World Chromebook program. You will find two communications below – the first is for Tigers who are new to the Chromebook program. The second is for Tigers who are already enrolled in the program. 

New Chromebook Tigers
For the fourth year of our One to World program at Loveland Middle School (LMS) and Loveland High School (LHS), we are excited to make Chromebooks available to all incoming 7th and 10th graders and students new to Loveland. For the 2019-20 school year, students enrolling in the program will be provided the Lenovo 300e (Generation 2) Touchscreen Chromebook which features:
• Touchscreen display
• A 360-degree hinge allows for laptop, tablet, tent or stand mode
• 10-hour battery life
• Spill-proof keyboard
• Rugged design

Along with the Chromebook, students will also be provided a heavy-duty Gumdrop protective case, which must be left on the Chromebooks at all times. 

Who is eligible?
The new Chromebook will be available to all incoming 7th grade and 10th grade students, and students new to Loveland in grades 7 through 12 for the 2019-20 school year. Additionally, based on popular demand, students in grades 8 through 12 who initially chose to bring their own device for the 2018-2019 school year are now also able to opt into the program. If you are NOT an incoming 7th grader, but plan on enrolling in the program for the 2019-20 school year, please fill out this form so that we can order enough machines. 

Why should I consider the Loveland Chromebook?
• With over 70 percent of students in grades 7-12 taking advantage of the district Chromebook option, the Chromebook is the popular device of choice across Loveland.
• At a cost of $80/year, the device transfers ownership to the family and it is yours to keep after three years of paying for the Chromebook.
• Along with the Chromebook and case, our amazing technology staff (and student Innovation Lab members) also offer full technical support of the district Chromebook. 
• All additional details on the program can be found here

How do I get mine?
• Chromebooks will only be available during schedule pickup times in August. Information for these dates and times will be communicated by both LMS and LHS. 
• If you are going to purchase a school-issued Chromebook, it must be picked up during this time.
• Fees will be applied to your student account in the fall. 
• No money is due up front. 

Current Chromebook Tigers
Students continuing with the program for the 2019-20 school year:
• To support summer academic assignments and extend opportunities for learning, all students who plan to keep their Chromebook will maintain possession and responsibility of the device this summer. Recommendations for extended summer learning online resources can be found here
• Technology support will NOT be available during the summer break. Please treat your Chromebook with care, and have it ready for back-to-school 2019. 
• Families will be charged the $80 fee along with their other school fees.

Current 9th grade students who have paid off their Chromebook over the past three years:
• If your child received a Chromebook in 7th grade, you have now paid towards your Chromebook for three years and will gain ownership of the device.
• As ownership of the machine is passed over to families at the conclusion of the school year, we will stop providing service and will no longer have management rights over the machine. 
• For the 2019-20 school year, you will have the option of continuing to use your existing Chromebook, sign up for a new Chromebook during schedule pick-up at the high school, or choose to bring your own device. 
• If choosing to bring your own device, please see the bring your own device requirements.
• If you wish to continue to use the paid-off Chromebook as a “bring your own device,” you must register it with the school during schedule pick up. 

Students who wish to opt out of the program and will bring their own device for the 2019-20 school year:
• Students will need to turn in their Chromebook and charger to the school tech desk May 13-31. 
• Failure to return the charger, or returning a damaged Chromebook, may result in additional fees being charged to the student’s account. 
• If the Chromebook is not received by May 31, families will be charged the usage fee for the 2019-20 school year.
• Please keep in mind that this action cannot be undone once the device has been turned in and your student will not have the option of receiving another district Chromebook until the next roll out cycle
• Please see here for bring your own device requirements

For current seniors or students leaving Loveland who will be paying off remaining balance to gain ownership of their Chromebook:
• Students not returning to Loveland are able to pay off the remaining balance on their Chromebook to gain ownership of the device. 
• If interested, please contact Alysha Haungs at LMS (haungsal@lovelandschools.org) or Nina Monfreda at LHS (monfreni@lovelandschools.org) to arrange payment by May 31.
• If the balance on Chromebook is not paid off by May 31, this may result in the district withholding transcripts and/or the graduating student’s diploma.

For current seniors or students leaving Loveland who DO NOT wish pay off the remaining balance on the Chromebook and forego ownership, AND seniors on free/reduced lunch using a district Chromebook:
• Students will need to turn in their Chromebook and charger to the school tech desk May 13-31. 
• Failure to return the charger, or returning a damaged Chromebook, may result in additional fees. 
• If the Chromebook is not received by May 31, this may result in the district withholding transcripts and/or the graduating student’s diploma.

If you have any additional questions, please contact me directly at knappda@lovelandschools.org
Thank you,
David Knapp
Director of Technology and Innovation
