Frequently Asked Questions from Parents:
Does this mean students won't learn how to write with a pen or pencil anymore?
- No, students will still use paper and pencil. They will just spend an increased amount of time typing, which will help them improve their keyboarding skills.
Will my child be learning different curriculum?
- No, the curriculum and standards taught will be the same across the grade level. Chromebooks are just a tool that will be used to deliver the curriculum.
Will information about my child be stored or shared on the internet?
- No. All students are registered with only a user name and password. Any content put into Google Apps is safe from other organizations and is fully owned by District 15.
