EAMS/EAHS Chromebook Distribution 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians,

The Elizabethtown Area School District is excited to share that we are expanding the 1:1/Personalized Learning Initiative for the 2019-2020 school year. Each student in grades 7 through 12 will be issued a Lenovo Chromebook for educational purposes both during school and at home.

1:1/Personalized Learning initiatives focus on transforming the way students learn, empowering them with technology access that enhances learning and creativity. Using 1:1/Personalized Learning computing, students are more engaged and take a more active role in course instruction. Accessibility of 1:1/Personalized Learning computing in the classroom places focus on instructional practices rather than the tool itself.

Please visit the district website at http://www.etownschools.org for more detailed information on the 1:1/Personalized Learning Initiative including a Parent/Guardian FAQ, Getting Started with the Chromebook Tipsheet, and how to access Technology Support.
