General Information: 1 to 1 Deployments
East Maine School District 63 uses a variety of devices to meet the instructional needs of our students. The majority of our devices for grades 3 through 8 are traditional chromebooks, while most devices used in grades k through 2 are flip-touch chromebooks that also convert into a tablet. Additional devices deployed are Android tablets, iPads and some traditional computers in our STEAM classes.
District 63 provides the following access to technology:
- 1 to 1 Deployment with take home privladges for Grades 6, 7 and 8.
- 1 to 1 deployment in classroom for grade 5.
- 2 to 1 or 1 to 1 deployment in school for grades K-4.
Why has District 63 increased the level of technology students have access to?
- The nature of information and knowledge is changing.
- Students learn differently today.
- We live in a digital age, dominated by information that sees technological advancements happening at an exponential rate.
- We must prepare students for their futures, not our past.
- Students have a fundamental right to expect an education that reflects these principles.
