Each student at Mountain Ridge will receive a Chromebook to use for the entire school year. Schools referred to this as being one-to-one (1:1), because there is one device for each student. Students will be expected to bring their Chromebook to class each day.
Students will be expected to bring their Chromebook to school each day. Chromebook use will depend on each teacher and will vary daily. Chromebooks are an important learning tool and students should come prepared with a charged device so they can connect, discover, create and share.
Each student will receive a charging cable with their Chromebook. Each Chromebook and charging cable will be labeled with an identifying sticker with student name and student ID.
When a Chromebook is charged each night, the device will work the entire school day. Students should make charging the Chromebook a daily routine to ensure the device is ready to be used each school day.
