Students in Grades 3-8 will be assigned Chromebooks for the 2017-18 school year and will be engaging with their teachers for assignments through Google Classroom©, a free web service offered to schools and non-profits to anyone with a personal Google account. The service is an affordable and secure platform that offers educators organization tools for their students, saves time and paper, and enhances student communication and feedback.
Teachers in Grades 6-8 will be using Google Classroom® for the entire school year. Teachers in Grades 3-5 will be transitioning to the technology slowly over the first semester.
