Marblehead High School is preparing to launch a Chromebook BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) initiative for students in the 2018-19 school year. This year, teachers were provided a Chromebook by the District and are participating in a series of professional development sessions to prepare them for this program. An optional parent information night will be held on Tuesday, November 28th at 6:30pm in the HS Auditorium.
The plan is for parents to purchase a Chromebook for their student. Chromebooks will be provided for students who receive Free or Reduced Lunch. Families who have financial difficulties may contact Dan Bauer for assistance. We anticipate the Chromebook will cost $300.
Why did we choose Chromebooks?Chromebooks were selected for their ease of use, low cost and all day battery life. They fully support Google applications. Chromebooks also offer a Google Management System that allows us to deploy settings, extensions and apps that will be utilized in the classroom.
Why are we launching a Chromebook BYOD program?Marblehead High School is committed to preparing students for life and careers in the digital age by empowering them with the knowledge and tools to innovate and create using technology.
