One to One Computing

Starting at the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, McGuffey School District implemented a One to One Computing program for students in grades 6-12.  At the start of the 2020-2021 school year, each student will be issued a Chromebook for educational use.  The students have access to these devices throughout the school year while they are at school as well as when they leave the campus.  Below, you can find information about the One to One Computing Program at McGuffey School District.  If you would like more information, please contact the Student Technology Help Desk.

Device Distribution

At the beginning of each year, each building involved in the One to One Computing Program will distribute Chromebooks to their students.  In order to receive a Chromebook, students and parents must agree to the McGuffey School District Acceptable Use Policy  (Policy #815) as well as sign the McGuffey School District Chromebook Acceptance Form.  We recognize that while these devices are powerful educational tools they can also be expensive to repair.  For this reason, we offer an optional insurance program for our students.  
 
We recognize that not all students need to use the district provided devices and may wish to use their own device while in our buildings.  For this reason, we offer connectivity to our network for those students through our Bring Your Own Device program.  In order to take advantage of this program, the student will need to complete the Device Waiver Form for the One to One Computing Program. 

Our process this year for distributing Chromebooks looks a little different than in the past.  Because of the new options we have for student participation in our educational programs we are working to distribute Chromebooks prior to the first day of school.  There are a number of forms that will need completed prior to each student receiving his/her device.  Please read through the following document and complete the necessary forms prior to arrival and distribution: Chromebook Distribution Process 2020-2021 

Please use the links below to access and complete the necessary forms prior to the date of distribution at your school:

Maintenance During the School Year

We understand that student issued devices occasionally need tuned up or repaired in order to perform properly.  For this reason, we have set up a Parent-Student Technology Portal.  If you are experiencing issues or would like us to look at your district issued device, please submit a ticket in the Parent-Student Technology Portal and a technician will reach out to you as soon as possible.

Device Returns

Each year, at the end of the year, student devices will be collected in an effort to physically clean the devices and maintain their performance for future years.  The return process for this year is outlined in this Document.
