As part of Maricopa Unified School District's Strategic Plan, Goal 2: Every student has access to and equity in excellent educational services, resources, and programs, we will implement a 1:1 pilot program in our middle schools beginning the end of January. This endeavor allows us to provide each student with a new laptop to enhance curriculum and instruction in the classroom. We are thankful for our community support via override funding and for community partners who are making this opportunity possible. Together we are moving our students into the future with technology that will not only assist in their education, but will also prepare them for future endeavors. We will begin with a series of lessons on the use and care of the device. The lessons are designed to assist in preventing damage to the laptop and can be reviewed at home via a link on your child's school website: www.musd20.org/dwms and www.musd20.org/mwms. Schoolwide assemblies are scheduled to review these expectations. Students will have the devices with them throughout the day. They will check out the device daily from their last period teacher then return it back before the end of day dismissal. The laptops will be for school use only and are not to be taken home. It is imperative that the teachers, students and parents all understand the importance of treating the devices with the best care possible, as we need these laptops to last for years to come. Students willI be responsible for the care of the device per the device found on the back side of this form. Students who abuse or neglect technology will be subject to disciplinary action found in our student handbook. As part of our daily instruction, students will be using several web based programs such as Pearson enVisions (math) and McGraw Hill StudySync (ELA) just to name a few. It is highly encouraged that your child use his/her accounts from home as much as possible. January 2020 Maricopa Unified School District #20
