  • 1:1 Chromebook

    District 161 is excited to announce that we are continuing student access to digital devices at Parker Junior high school. Beginning this fall, students in grades 6 - 8 will be issued a Chromebook along with a protective case for use in school and at home.

     

    Chromebooks will assist our students by providing access to digital materials at home as well as at school. Students will be able to utilize email and calendars to help them stay organized, improve communication, and assist them in learning to manage the technological skills prevalent in society today. Each year we are seeing more classroom materials and textbooks available online. Students will have access to this information whenever and wherever they may be without needing to carry all of their textbooks with them. We will also be strengthening the digital citizenship of our students.
