Learning, work, and citizenship in today’s world demand our graduates responsibly, ethically, and capably apply a variety of technology skills. By providing each secondary student with a Chromebook computer to use at school and at home, Elko County School District intends to enable an engaging, collaborative, self-directed, and empowering learning environment that supports students’ preparation for fulfilling futures beyond high school.
Through rich and ample opportunities to use technology for learning in school and at home, it is our goal students will:
Safely access digital resources where and when they need them;
Proficiently and safely use information, media, and technology to succeed in a digital world;
Communicate with peers, teachers, and appropriate resources beyond the schoolhouse in support of learning;
Learn, share, collaborate, and create to think and solve problems;
Manage work, equipment, resources, and timelines to lead to accomplishment; and
Take ownership of goals and apply resources to reach them.
The use of district-provided technology requires students to abide by all Elko County School District policies and procedures related to technology, the Acceptable Use Agreement, and local, state, and federal laws. Students are expected to responsibly use district technology and network resources and to keep their district-issued devices safe, secure, and in good working order. The information in the Chromebook Manual will assist students and parents in meeting these expectations:
