Woodland Public Schools issue middle and high school students a one-to-one (1:1) technology device (a Chromebook) as a means to promote growth and achievement, and provide flexible and modern digital learning opportunities. 

As well as supporting traditional learning with digital, online resources, we aim to develop the "4 Cs" to move all students forward on the path to being career, college and life ready:

  • Critical thinking
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Creativity

To that end, our electronic devices and learning resources aren't simply a replacement for earlier ways of learning and working, but help to take that learning further through 

  • Engagement - Tools that allow the student more time on task with less distraction, tools that motivate the student to engage with with learning.
  • Enhancement - Technology that aids students in developing and demonstrating a more sophisticated understanding of the content, tools that create scaffolds to make it easier for students to develop understanding.
  • Extension - Technology that connects their learning with the real world, that moves them out of their typical school day, that helps build skills for their next steps.

Student/Parent Agreement

In order to receive a District issued device we need our Digital Learning Agreement signed by both the student and a parent. This agreement includes details on our device "self-assurance" program to offset the costs of accidental damage to the device.
