School photos will be taken during the open house from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. We request all students have their picture taken even if they do not want to place an order.

Chromebooks at the MS

Chromebooks

Over the past few years, the St. Croix Central Technology Committee has been meeting to evaluate the current state of SCC’s resources and needs. As a result of the Committee’s exhaustive research, beginning this fall, the St. Croix Central School District will begin implementing a 1:1 Chromebook initiative. In order to remain fiscally responsible, we will rollout the Chromebook process three grade levels at a time starting with the 6th—8 th grade students this year. 

The impact that technology plays in our daily lives and the need to foster technology skills within our students is more than apparent. The use of Chromebooks will allow students to leverage 21st century skills to adapt, problem solve, collaborate, and create content for the world around them. This program enhances classroom environments by providing high-quality instruction, assessment, and learning through the integration of technology and curriculum. 

The cost for leasing a Chromebook will be $40.00 a year, $20.00 for students who qualify for the reduced lunch program, and no cost for students who qualify for the free lunch program. At the end of a three-year cycle, Chromebooks will be available to purchase at a very minimal fee. All leased devices will include a hard sided carrying case to minimize damage. Also, optional insurance coverage will be available to purchase through a district chosen, third-party vendor. 

There will be voluntary informational meetings for 6th—8 th grade parents held in the middle school multi-purpose room on August 17th from 6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. and on August 20th from 1:00 p.m - 2:00 p.m. A more detailed letter will be sent home to families of 6th—8 th grade students regarding the Chromebook implementation. Also, more information will be available at www.scc.k12.wi.us/district/chromebooks.cfm including the Chromebook handbook, insurance information, frequently asked questions, and other related technology resources and forms. 

You can find more information on the SCC website under District --> Technology & Library --> Chromebooks
