We are well on our way into the brand new school year. We have been very excited to see so many of you at our weekly Friday Flag assemblies. We look forward to seeing more of you each week. Don't forget Parent Teacher Conferences are the week of October 12-16 and all days are modified dismissal. This year we have a new system for assigning the conferences. Please look for an email from your child's teacher with a link and directions on how you may sign up for your specific date and time. This new technology allows parents to choose dates and times that work for them.
Technology has become an essential part of education here at Alamos Elementary. To be able to live, learn, and work successfully in our information-rich society, students must be able to utilize technology effectively. Many students' lives toady are filled with technology that gives them unlimited access to information and resources, enabling them to pursue their interests in their own way and at their own pace. The opportunities are limitless, borderless, and instantaneous.
In the past, the use of computing devices not owned by the school district has been forbidden during the school day. With many students owning mobile computing devices and frequently using these devices for their school work while at home, the district has recognized the need to allow students to utilize their own technology in a more seamless way at school. In an effort to put students at the center and empower them to take control of their own learning, the school district installed a robust WiFi network that will support wireless connectivity in any building on campus, including connectivity for BYO (Bring you own device) for educational use while at school.
Students can bring their own mobile computing devices to school for use in their classes. A filtered internet connection will be provided for students to use for education purposes. Students and parents will need to be aware of the district policy surround use of technology including BYOD devices. The student is solely responsible for any equipment that s/he brings to school. The school and district are not liable for damaged, lost, or stolen equipment. The district is not able to provide technical support for personal devices brought to school. All students must adhere to the Acceptable Use and Electronic Devices Policies. When students use technology inappropriately while on the school network, the same consequences apply, regardless of who owns the device. Please look for the letter and permission slip that will be coming home with all second through fifth graders. I also encourage everyone to watch the technology powerpoint that is posted on the website discussing digital citizenship. Teachers have been sharing this same presentation with students in class as well, in preparation for students bringing in their devices.
Thank you for your continued support,
Ca. Distinguished School
