Parents – Each child that attends Lee’s Summit R7 School District in grades K-12 will receive a Dell Chromebook 11 beginning in the 2015-16 school year. Kindergarten students will receive a touchscreen model Dell Chromebook 11. All other grades will receive non-touchscreen. The district will continue to add parent resources and detailed information over the next few months, so please check back often for these updates.
Students in the digital age need guidance and supervision to learn how to appropriately and safely use the technology tools they have available to them. Technology devices are great learning tools, and instruction on digital citizenship will occur at each school and every grade level. We encourage families to follow up at home.
The district has adopted the Common Sense digital citizenship curricular materials. Common Sense is a non-profit organization focused on empowering kids to thrive in a world of media and technology.
