1:1 Technology

Woodridge 68 provides individual technology in the classroom, allowing for more learning opportunities and instructional time throughout the day. Students in grades K-8 are issued a specific Chromebook, which is assigned to the individual student. Students are taught procedures and expectations surrounding the proper use and care of these devices.

All Chromebooks owned by Woodridge School District 68 are district property and are provided to students for a period of time as deemed appropriate by District Administration. Devices may be taken home every evening, but it is the student’s responsibility to make sure the device returns to school fully charged. These devices are to be used as a productivity tool for school-related business, curriculum, research, and communications. Students must act in accordance with all applicable Board of Education policies when using the District’s Chromebook computers, electronic devices, and accessories.

Woodridge 68 contracts accident protection for our student Chromebooks. This is a mandatory program; all students are required to purchase the damage waiver to take the device off school property. Woodridge 68 students are automatically enrolled in the program, and the cost is included in the student's technology fee.
