TManchester High School 1:1 Chromebook Handbook

The goal of the 1-to-1 program at Manchester High School is to create a 21st century environment for all learners. This environment will enable and support students and teachers to implement transformative uses of technology while enhancing students’ engagement with content and one another. Students will transition from consumers of information to creative, collaborative producers and owners of knowledge. These changes will promote the development of self-directed and lifelong learners. This program will enhance classroom environments by implementing high-quality instruction, assessment and learning through the integration of technology and curriculum. The Board of Education, district staff and community members will all play a key role in the development of effective and high quality educational experiences.
