District 155 will be implementing a one-to-one computing program at the beginning of the 2017-2018 school year. Through this program, we will provide a Chromebook for every student in the district, and we are excited about the many educational benefits we believe this will provide for our students. In an effort to provide more information about these devices and how they will be used, we have created an opportunity for families to visit our schools and take advantage of some basic training on Chromebooks and Google’s suite of educational programs.
Dates, Times, and Locations:
Monday, April 24 (6:30pm-9:00pm) at Crystal Lake Central High School (in the Student Cafeteria)
Wednesday, April 26 (6:30pm-9:00pm) at Crystal Lake South High School (in the Student Cafeteria)
Monday, May 1 (6:30pm-9:00pm) at Cary-Grove High School (in the Student Cafeteria)
Wednesday, May 3 (6:30pm-9:00pm) at Prairie Ridge High School (in the Student Cafeteria)
(Please enter through the main entrance, and you will be guided to the specific location at each school.)
Parents, guardians, and students are invited to attend any of the sessions where the following information will be presented:
Basic training and “hands-on” experience with Chromebook devices.
An overview of Google’s cloud-based G Suite programs and how they are used to produce and collaborate.
An overview of the Google Classroom program and how it is used by students and teachers.
An overview of web filtering and other tools the district will provide to protect students and facilitate classroom management.
The opportunity to ask questions and gather additional information about the one-to-one program in general.
Please note that you can attend any of these sessions to fit your schedule. All sessions will offer the same information, so it is not necessary to attend the session at your student’s home school if a different session is more convenient for you.
