2018-2019 1:1 Chromebook Parent Video

CCPS is excited to launch a secondary 1:1 initiative during the 2018-2019 school year. As outlined in our strategic plan, Pathways 2022, every 6th through 12th greater will receive a Chromebook during the second week of school. This digital device will become an essential learning tool within our blended learning classrooms. The purposeful integration of technology will enhance students’ college and career readiness and 21st century skills such as creativity, innovation, communication, collaboration, and digital citizenship.

To support parental awareness regarding the 1:1 initiative, one parent/guardian per household will be responsible for viewing the CCPS 1:1 Parent Orientation Video currently available on the CMS and CHS websites. Thank you for completing this brief 15-minute video by Friday, August 17 to prevent uninterrupted delivery of your student’s device. Thank you!
