1 To 1 Chromebook Initiative for

3rd-5th Grade Students


Tricia Barton and Joshua Petty

Central Task
Create a three year plan to implement a 1 to 1
Chromebook initiative for Kaneland students in
3rd through 5th grade in the most effective and
cost conscious way possible.

Goals
1. Each student in grades three through five in Kaneland
CUSD #302 will be issued Samsung Chromebook for
school use during the school year from the district by
SY16-17.

Goals
2. By SY16-17, each student in grades three through five in
Kaneland CUSD #302 will pass training in proper handling
and digital citizenship and safety to the satisfaction of the
building based computer education teacher and assigned
classroom teacher before being allowed to take the device
off of school property.

Goals
3. Each classroom teacher assigned to grades three
through five in Kaneland CUSD #302 must participate in
training and sign an addendum to the AUP before roll out of
the devices to his or her students during SY14-15, SY1516, and SY16-17.

Goals
4. Each school will increase technical support personnel at
Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the device roll out plan from .5
FTE to 1.0 FTE by the beginning of the SY16-17 school
year.

Goals
5. During each year of the Chromebook initiative the
needed funding for each phase will be secured at the June
School Board budget voting meeting.

Goals
6. During Phase 2 and Phase 3 of the initiative staff
involved in the previous phase will assist in building level
training and troubleshooting for teachers new to the
initiative by mentoring, modeling, and contributing to a
handbook for use housed on the districts Google drive.

Goals
7. At least one custodial parent or guardian of each student
in grades three through five who is assigned a
Chromebook must have attended an informational meeting
and signed an addendum to the AUP before roll out of the
devices to his or her students during SY14-15, SY15-16,
and SY16-17.
