| USD 475 One-to-One Technology Initiative|
In 2015 3rd - 8th grade students were equipped with individual devices as part of the USD 475's One-to-One initiative. In 2016, 9th -12th grade students will have devices, providing more access to instructional technology than ever before in USD 475. Our K-2 students will also benefit by having access to devices in the classroom or media center.
The device will allow student access to educational applications, web-based tools, and many other useful sites that allow students and teachers to work more collaboratively in and out of the classroom. The device is an educational tool not intended for gaming, social networking, or high-end computing, and all users will be expected to follow the district’s Acceptable Use Policy as well as all other state and federal laws, board policies, and school rules.
Please take time to review our One-to-One Device Handbook (Español) and Device Agreement (Español).
All students have access to Office 365 which includes email, cloud storage (1TB), online Microsoft Office programs (Word, Excel and PowerPoint), and the ability to install Office 2013 on up to five devices. Students can collaborate on projects and research using OneNote.
Lego Education Sets
Our kindergarten and first-grade classrooms are all equipped with Lego education sets. These grant funded sets are used to teach science concepts about simple machine using pulleys, gears, wheels and more.
