Classroom Devices

Our classroom teachers use technology in many ways to facilitate learning inside and outside their classrooms. 

Elementary
Students in grades K-4 share iPads in a 2:1 environment, meaning there is at least one iPad for every two students in a class. There are also devices available on carts for teachers to use in addition to or as a substitute for iPads when a technology tool is needed. Those cart devices include Chromebooks, Macbooks, and extra iPads. Our fifth graders in Avon have 2:1 Chromebook classrooms, and in Albany the 5th graders have 2:1 iPad classrooms.

Middle School
Our middle school provides Chromebooks for every student to rent in grades 6-8 in a 1:1 environment. Our 7th and 8th grade students take their devices to and from school. Sixth graders begin to take devices home partway through the year. 

High School
In grades 9-12, our students may choose to rent a Chromebook from the school or bring their own device. 
This system is called a BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) environment. All students have a device, but they may choose to rent from the school or provide their own personal device.

Each building has one or more labs for classroom and testing purposes.
