At Copley-Fairlawn City School District, we are continually looking for ways to increase student learning opportunities that prepare them for the 21st century. Part of providing a quality education that allow students to succeed as lifelong learners is giving them access to new technologies.
Copley-Fairlawn City Schools is excited to provide a Chromebook to every student. The Copley-Fairlawn City School District 1-to-1 initiative will increase student learning opportunities by providing anytime, anywhere technology access that will prepare our students for their future education and career goals. The adoption of 1-to-1 Chromebooks will allow students to access new online and digital content created by our staff in addition to content provided by textbook companies and software vendors. The 1-to-1 program will also provide Copley-Fairlawn City School students with increased opportunities to communicate and collaborate in a digital environment. We are excited about these opportunities and working with our students as they learn good digital citizenship in a safe and responsible atmosphere.
Student Chromebooks will be provided to all students. Students will also receive a Chromebook charger and a protective case that must remain on the device at all times.
Students in 2nd to 12th grade are expected to take their assigned Chromebook home each night and return to school with a fully charged device the next school day. Chromebooks assigned to students in Kindergarten and 1st grade will generally remain in the classrooms to charge overnight. However, teachers will have the flexibility to allow the students to take home the Chromebooks as needed throughout the school year.
Though there will not be any student fees associated with the 1-to-1 program, families are responsible for repair or replacement costs for damaged, lost, or stolen equipment. Insurance will not be offered through the district; however, student helpdesks will be established at both the high school and middle school to provide our students with real-world technology support experience and minimize costs associated with any repairs.
Thank you for your continued support of our district.
