1:1 Technology

The Colonial School District has adopted a 1:1 Technology initiative. That means that each student in the District will have a device exclusively for their use.

While most of these devices will be provided by the District, high school and middle school students have the option to "Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).

Benefits of 1:1 Technology

  • It equalizes student access to technology.
  • It allows for better student engagement.
  • It helps teachers customize learning to student needs.
  • It prepares students for college and career.

1:1 Technology is particularly important during remote learning. However when they're able to return to the classroom, each student will continue to have one assigned device.

Devices by grade

  • Kindergarten and first graders will receive IPads.
  • Second and third graders will receive laptops.
  • Grades 4-12 will receive Chromebooks.
  • Students in some high school programs will receive a more powerful device.
