We are very excited to be preparing our students to be purposeful contributing members of our society. In order for us to be successful with the use of our learning tools, our instruction continues to focus on collaboration, communication, creativity and to be critical thinkers in and out of school.
No longer are we preparing our students for the Industrial Revolution...we are preparing our students for jobs that have not even been created yet. We want our students not just to get jobs, but we want our learners to CREATE jobs. With the integration of our technology tools learners will be prepared for technologically oriented opportunities that will demand higher level thinking skills.
The “Three R’s” are no longer enough. We want our learners to compete in this global society that require our learners to have voice, choice and to be innovators. The technology tools in our district support these important ideas. Our focus here at BBE Public Schools is to create conditions for our learners who are inspired and empowered to go deeper with their learning.
1:1 Device Program & Insurance
All K-12 Learners at BBE will be provided with a personal device to enhance their learning. This 1:1 initiative is focused on preparing students for the 21st century work environment where technology is prevalent in all career fields. K-8th students will receive a school issued iPad and students in 9-12 will receive a Chromebook. Students in grades 4th-12th will be allowed to take their device home with them throughout the school year, so long as they have filled out the 1:1 Device Handbook Form and paid for the insurance. Student devices in grade K-3rd will only be allowed to bring home their device in the event of an online learning day or other special circumstance. Due to the device remaining within the district most of the time, insurance is not required.
Students entering 4th-12th grade are permitted to take their devices home during the summer, as long as the 1:1 Device Handbook Form and payment are completed. If a family would rather have the school district keep the student's device over the summer, that is also acceptable.
More details about device insurance can be found within the 1:1 Device Handbook in the Resources Section below.
