Letting the parents know…

How do we let our parents know we are going 1:1 next year? I propose we send home a letter mapping out our intentions. We can send it home in hard copy and place it on our website. Now…what do we place in this letter. Let’s look at some examples:

Morris Middle School

  • a single school so discusses the district’s policies and their own
  • gives chromebook tips for parents
  • links to the parent video presentation
  • links for parents (good ones!)
  • chromebooks policies and FAQs

Marysville School District

  • entire school district not a single school
  • lists chromebook policy and FAQs for both students and parents
  • gives a calendar for the rollout
  • discuss the initiative in-depth
  • attached all forms needed

Camden County School District

  • entire school district not a single school
  • attached a letter from the Superintendent
  • attached letters to both students and teachers
  • attached video for the parents
  • all forms also attached

Chester School District

  • entire school district not a single school
  • gives reasons for going 1:1
  • lists goals and AUP
  • attached forms needed
  • a few links for parents

Sapula School District

  • separates each grade out since they are a school district, not a single school
  • lists Student FAQs
  • lists Students handbook
  • lists Insurance and chromebook agreement
  • gives parents information digital citizenship and how to get WIFI connections

 

Each of these have a few things in common:

  • forms needed for both parents and students
  • FAQS

What is missing:

  • list links for parents (i.e digital citizenship)
  • reasons for going 1:1
  • links for students – tips
