Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, our district will provide all students in Grades 3 through 8 with a Chromebook. Students in Grades 9 and 10 will be provided a HP Laptop. This year, students in Grade 6 - 10 will be able to use the devices at school and will be able to take them home. Students in Grades 3 - 5 will continue to use their Chromebooks at school as they will be charged and stowed in their classroom.
Students in Grade 2 have access to Chromebook carts available within the building. In addition, each elementary school has a computer lab and lap top cart available for kindergarten - second grade to use within their classrooms.
We have seen how a device for each student has transformed teaching and learning in our schools. The integration of Google Classroom and G Suite for Education into Grades 3- 10 classrooms has helped with students' organizational skills, collaboration with peers and students, and has increased students and staff opportunities towards anytime, anywhere learning.
We look forward to the opportunities this technology will continue to provide our students and teachers and we deeply appreciate the support of our parents and stakeholders in the Pompton Lakes Public Schools community.
