Our 1 :1 plan focuses on moving LPCSC students and staff toward an end where all students and staff are provided electronic devices that they use daily for teaching and learning.

To date we have enough devices to distribute one for each student and staff member. We intentionally avoid racing to put devices in the hands of students and staff without assurances that all students and staff would be using the devices to enhance student learning and guarantee our curricular outcomes.

To date, high school students take computers home while classroom sets of computers are provided at the middle and elementary levels.

We are working toward distributing a Chromebook to each middle level and elementary student at the start of the 2019/2020 school year. In order work within our vision for and meet our goals, we will be working with staff on student management systems and curriculum guarantees for the remainder of the 2018/2019 school year and summer of 2019.
