1:1 Chromebook Program
The Cooperstown Central School District’s 1:1 Program starts in eighth grade. Students are issued a Google Chromebook which can be used for schoolwork, educational research, and college prep, during their time at CCSD.
This program is for all students in grades 8 – 12 and the district-owned Chromebook stays with them for their entire time at CCSD, excluding summers.
1:1 Devices Used:
- Class of 2016 – 2019
- Samsung XE303 11″ 2gb Chromebooks
- Class of 2020
- HP 11 G4 4gb Chromebooks
- Class of 2021 – 2022 (including new to District 2019 – 2022 students)
- HP 11 G4 EE 4gb Chromebooks
- Class of 2023 and later
- HP 11 G6 EE Touch 4gb Chromebooks
The HPs offer a high-class look, better durability, increased performance, and longer battery life compared to the Samsung units for the same price. In addition, the touchscreen models offer more flexibility in use and have a cost of less than $5.00 extra per device over the “standard” devices.
Before a student can take home their assigned device, the 1:1 Student Agreement Permission Form needs to be read over and signed and returned to the I.T. Department. It can be placed in their mailbox, which is located in the Jr./Sr. High School Main Office. Currently, this form only needs to be completed once.
Students are encouraged to use the devices for all classes (teacher permitting) and for schoolwork. They are filtered both in and out of school, with the district’s content filter. The devices should only be used for academic educational purposes per the district’s “Acceptable Use Policy.” Students are liable for any and all damages or missing pieces to their devices. These would include the actual device, power supply, case, and all stickers and notices on the device (students are not allowed to place their own stickers or permanent items on the devices or cases). Devices should be returned in the same condition that they were given, with acceptable/reasonable wear being permitted.
