TechforEd: 5th Grade 1:1 Chromebook Initiative

"TechforEd" is Jeffco Public Schools' district-wide 1:1 initiative, starting in the 2019-20 school year. As a part of this initiative, all incoming fifth and ninth grade students will pay a technology fee that will assign them a Chromebook for the next four years. In addition to the fee, families can -- and are encouraged to -- purchase one of the warranty options as soon as possible after their student receives his/her device.

At Columbine Hills, fifth grade students received their Lenovo 300e Chromebook, charger, and protective case in August. Soon students will be taking these devices home. Once devices go home, students are expected to bring it back fully charged every day. They are not to remove the protective cover, but can add stickers to it. They are also unable to add or remove any apps/programs/games/etc. on this device unless approved by the school. Please help your student keep their Chromebooks charged and safe from damage.

All fifth grade students take part in twice-monthly digital citizenship classes with our Digital Teacher Librarian. Our focus for August/September is general device care and privacy/security. Please see the TechforEd website for more information and resources.
