• Medina City Schools has made the decision to go 1:1 with Chromebooks in grades K-12.  1:1 means one device for each student. The District Technology Vision Committee, comprised of teachers and administration, met during the school year to determine the District direction for technology purchases. Through staff surveys and research, the committee decided that our District was ready to make this leap.  Many area districts are already 1:1 including Brunswick, Black River, Cloverleaf and Buckeye. Wadsworth is also looking to make the move next year.


    Currently, students in grades K and 1 are 1:1 with their devices remaining in their classrooms for daily use. These devices do not travel home with the students.  All students in grades 2-12 are issued a Chromebook for daily use both in school and traveling home.  These devices are issued to students new in grades 2, 6 and 9.  The devices stay with students throughout the summer and are collected at the end of each top grade of each level (grades 5, 8 and 12).


    The devices are purchased by the District, with an optional $30 insurance fee offered to parents which would cover the cost of fixing the Chromebook one time if it were to break.  Because we are now 1:1, we ask that all students who travel with their device be responsible for bringing it to and from school each day.  It is expected that students bring a charged device each day. High school students can expect to be able to pick up their Chromebook in early August during orientation.  In order for a student to receive their Chromebook at the high school level, parents/guardians must sign the Acceptable Use Policy on Final Forms during the student update period prior to receiving the device.  All Chromebooks must be returned at the end of the school year (in grades 5, 8 and 12) or if a student leaves the District.
