1-to-1 Program: One Device for Every Child
With the success of the 2015-16 pilot of 1:1 devices for 10th grade students Marysville Schools is excited to continue the program and start the three year process of supplying every child in grades 5-12 with a device.
 
Access to information and learning has evolved into much more than libraries and text books.  Today we have digital access to the collective knowledge of millions of learners and educators.  Digital devices give our students access to new examples, experiences, and ways to create, communicate and collaborate like never before.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Who will be assigned a 1:1 device during the 2016-17 year?

  • All students in grades 5, 7, 10, and 11 will be offered a device. Students who prefer to use their personal device are allowed to opt out of the device program.

When will students get the device?

  • Students in grade 5 will be assigned their device during the school day.  Students in grade 7 will have a distribution event on the evening of September 8th.  Students in grade 10 will have a distribution event on the evening of August 22.  Students in grade 11 will pick up their device during schedule pickup in their building.

Why are 5th graders getting their device during the day and grade 7 and 10 have an evening event?

  • The students in 5th grade will keep their device at school.  Students in grades 7, 10, and 11 will be taking their devices home each night and have additional requirements understand.  We feel the distribution event is the best way to share this information. 
Can parents come without a student?
  • A parent or legal guardian may attend the event and pickup the device for the student if the student is not available. 
My device isn’t working or damaged. Who do I call?
  • When students have an issue with their device their first stop is the building media center. If they cannot quickly resolve the issue they will create a ticket with the district technology department. If your device needs to be sent out for repair the building will have a limited number of loaner devices.

What do I do if I leave my device at home?

  • Students without their device will need to be resourceful in getting their daily work accomplished. Loaner devices will not be available for students who did not bring their device to school.

How long will I have this device?

  • Devices assigned to students in grade 5 will follow the student into grade 6.  Devices assigned to students in grades 7 and 10 are expected to last three years.

Do I keep the device over the summer?

  • Each spring all devices will be checked back into the media center for the summer.

Can I play video games, watch videos and listen to music on the device?

  • While the primary purpose of the device is academic students are allowed to use the device for games, videos, and music as long as they are school appropriate.

How much is this device going to cost?

  • The devices are offered free to students but we recommend participating in the accidental damage protection plan.

Who monitors the activity on the device?

  • The devices will not be actively monitored but students are reminded that all activity is logged and is searchable by the district and building administrators.

Is a filter provided by the district?

  • The devices will be filtered on and off campus.

What if my child does something inappropriate or against school rules on the device?

  • The device is a privilege which can be revoked for violation of the student code of conduct, acceptable use policy, or device agreement. Any criminal act will be referred to the proper authorities.

Is this device available for my immediate family to use?

  • The device is assigned to the student and should only be used by that student.

Do the chromebooks require antivirus software?

  • The ChromeOS has built in antivirus software which automatically updates.

Do they come with a case?

  • All devices will come with a case. Students are expected to keep their assigned device in the case at all times.

Is there any software we need to purchase? Are we allowed to install Google Play apps?

  • Students will not be expected to purchase any additional software. Students are allowed to install school appropriate applications from the Google Play app store.
