Dear Incoming 9th grade parents,
We are very excited to announce that we are ready to move forward with our 1-1 laptop initiative for 9th graders next year. The information and participation forms for the program are now available online on our 1-1 laptop website and a paper copy was sent home with all 8th grade students today.
We need to hear from every incoming 9th grade parent by Monday, June 4th to confirm whether or not your child will participate. We need a minimum of 80% participation rate from children in the 9th grade class for the program to move forward next year. All students must return the Program Participation Formregardless of whether or not they are planning to lease a laptop through the school district.
For more information on the program, we invite you to view our 1-1 laptop program website and the following two videos produced by HCAM news. The first is a 12-minute explanation of the program and the second is a recording of the 8th grade parent’s night where teachers presented their vision for how they will integrate the laptops into their courses next year.
Please feel free to contact me directly with questions.
