1 to 1 Learning

Carlisle High School is preparing all of our students to work as responsible citizens and life-long learners by providing both students and teachers with the necessary technology tools and skills. Our students will be introduced to learning opportunities that allow to development skills in problem solving, information retrieval, research and communication skills, critical and creative thinking, and continued life-long learning skills.

Starting with the 2014-15 school year, all students are required to have a laptop at school to access online instructional resources for class activities and assignments. The device must be capable of accessing the district’s wireless internet connection.

If a student does not have daily access to a laptop, one may be borrowed from the district for a $25 annual technology fee. This fee covers a new accidental damage protection plan for district laptops that would eliminate financial obligations for up to two accidental and unintentional damage incidents. The Lenovo Thinkpad 11e, http://www.lenovo.com/education/us/en/thinkpad-11e.shtml will be assigned for the duration of the school year.

Distribution Dates

All students will have access to Microsoft Office 365 for online productivity software, email, and file storage at school and from any other location with internet access. Microsoft Office 365 is available for personal or district owned laptops. Students without internet access outside of school will be able to access their files offline via Microsoft OneDrive.

If reasonable precautions are taken in the use of the laptop, the laptop should not experience physical damage. The laptop and its accessory equipment (battery, power cord, case) are the property of the Carlisle Area School District. The laptop is to be used by the student only. The student should not loan their laptop to anyone. If anyone else accesses the laptop and violates policy, the student will be held accountable. All aspects of the Administrative Acceptable Use Agreement and Discipline Code of Conduct apply to the use of this equipment on and off campus.
