1:1 iPad Initiative: 2014-15

We want to make you aware of a 1:1 digital learning initiative that is taking place in the upcoming school year (2014-2015) for all 7th and 8th graders at both RAMS and Parkview Center School. The goals of this initiative are to increase student engagement, accelerate learning, individualize instruction, encourage collaboration, reinforce 21st century skills, and provide equitable opportunities and access in order to increase the achievement of all students. As a parent or guardian you play an important role in your students educational and social development.

We want to partner with you to make this initiative as successful as possible. We have planned several parent/guardian meetings in late August for you to receive information on 1:1 policies and procedures, to receive further information about insurance and apple id setup options, and to sign off on documentation needed for your student(s) to receive their district issued iPad during the first week of school.

In order for your student(s) to receive their personalized learning device, a parent or guardian must attend one of the sessions listed below, all sessions will be held in the Roseville Area Middle School Auditorium.

Saturday, August 23rd

  1. 8:00 – 9:00 am
  2. 12:00 – 1:00 pm
  3. 7:00 – 8:00 pm

Wednesday, August 27th

  1. 4:00 – 5:00 pm
  2. 6:15 – 7:00 pm

Tuesday, September 2nd

Beyond these initial meeting dates we also wanted to provide you with a place to explore, give feedback, and gain a greater understanding of what this initiative is all about.  You can do this by visiting the following website or QR code below:
