School District 21 has developed a comprehensive Parent/Student Chromebook Handbook. The purpose of this handbook is to serve as an informative and useful guide for parents and students to support the success of students in their 21st century learning experience here at CCSD21. This handbook should be the central point of reference for all things related to our 1:1 Chromebook learning program. This handbook applies to all grade levels K-8. The handbook can be found below in English, Spanish, Polish, and Russian.

School District 21 has also developed a student care presentation for students to prepare them for taking their device home. All students will have these slides presented to them by their classroom teacher during deployment of these Chromebooks. This presentation is also a great reference for all parents. The student care presentation can be found below in English, Spanish, Polish, and Russian.

In addition to being the device that best supports the District’s efforts toward the Mission and Vision, this device also proves to be the easiest to manage and least expensive of all of the devices considered. This combination will allow for even more of these devices to be in the hands of students, while exercising fiscal responsibility.
Chromebooks are simply tools for learning, but they are powerful tools that allow students to reach out and learn from a much wider range of resources than traditional books and magazines. With the web, students can stay up-to-date on changes in information and the world as well as benefit from learning about content and concepts through a variety of perspectives. School District 21 remains excited about the potential of these tools to deepen learning for all students and to make the curriculum more relevant for students than ever.
