Student Chromebook Distribution
ELIZABETHTOWN AREA SCHOOL DISTRICT
June 01, 2022
Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Elizabethtown Area School District is excited to share that students entering 9th grade for the 2022-2023 school year are scheduled to receive a Chromebook device as part of the District’s 1:1/Personalized Learning Initiative (see distribution dates below). In addition to the Chromebook, included items in the EASD Student Chromebook Package are a carry case and power supply. Our goal in providing Chromebooks to our students is to enhance learning. This endeavor focuses on transforming the way students learn, empowering them with technology access that enhances learning and creativity. Research suggests that in a 1:1/Personalized Learning computing environment, students are more engaged and take a more active role in course instruction. Students will be able to use the Chromebook to conduct research, collaborate with classmates, problem-solve, and connect with others as only access to technology can allow. Accessibility of 1:1/Personalized Learning computing in the classroom places focus on instructional practices rather than the tool itself.
Please visit the Technology Services section on the district website at www.etownschools.org (under Academics) for more detailed information on the 1:1/Personalized Learning Initiative. Below are a few pages with specific areas of interest:
- Getting Started with the Chromebook

Chromebook distribution information for ALL incoming students entering 9th grade can be found below, including dates, times, and location of pickup. If you have any questions regarding the 1:1/Personalized Learning Initiative, please contact your building principal or email the Technology Services Department at email@example.com.
