Preparing students to be successful in a digital age and global economy is a responsibility that Community Consolidated School District 15 takes very seriously.
District 15 provides each student in Grades 3-8, and younger students in multi-grade classrooms with 3rd graders, a Chromebook, a protective case, charger, and licensing at no cost. Students in Grades K-2 will be assigned a device which will be sent home on days when inclement weather is forecast for use during an e-Learning day.
These items will remain the property of District 15 while going home with students over the summer. Students continue to be held accountable to the Responsible Use Contract (see below) over the summer months. The next school year, students will continue using the same Chromebook.
Students will be able to use their individual, district-issued Chromebooks to access G Suite for Education which are free learning tools that foster collaboration, exploration, and content creation.
A Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) has been developed to answer many questions that parents and students may have about this exciting new initiative. The FAQ and other information about the Chromebook initiative can be found on the District’s website.
