York School District One is excited to offer computing devices to students in grades 7-12. Our personal mobile computing initiative is not about the device used. It is not about a Chromebook, an iPad, a tablet or laptop; it is about what a personal mobile computing device will enable our students to do.
Students in grades 7-12 will have access to devices 24 hours a day, seven days a week should their parents choose. These devices give students access to the most current information available through the Internet and our Learning Management System (LMS), Canvas. It is expected that the device be used as an instructional tool by students and teachers. As York School District One continues to implement Canvas, teachers are integrating curriculum, assessments, grading, state standards, and much more in order to improve student achievement. Canvas provides teachers and students with a single easy to use location for managing teaching and learning.
Below is important information about student devices, including the district's Personal Mobile Computing Guide, a parent & student device orientation video, a digital version of the agreement that must be completed in order for a student to check out a device, and more.
Support for Parents
Parents are encouraged to create Observer accounts to receive notifications and information from their school and teachers via Canvas. Create your free Canvas observer account for each student and that account stays connected as long as they are in York School District One!
