Chromebook Professional Development

Summer 2016

WSD Moves Forward!

We will be moving forward with our plan to purchase more Chromebooks for more teams over the summer. In addition, more adults are getting them as well.


Kaleidoscope and Mosaic students will each have one to use during the day at school. That moves us to Chromebooks for all WCS students.


ABS 1-2 laptops in carts will be replaced with Chromebooks.


If you're receiving this, YOU will be getting a Chromebook to use. (You may have one already - but please come for the professional development.) Please read on for initial important information.


**Choose one of the two options below for YOUR professional development. You WILL be compensated for this day. There's a link to RSVP in each option, which both go to the same place.

Chromebook Professional Development/Planning Option #1

Thursday, Aug. 18th, 8am-4pm

WCS Dinning Room

This is option 1.
  • Teams can come together (may help with planning roll-out) or separate due to personal schedules.

Chromebook Professional Development/Planning Option #2

This is the second option for a day of professional development and planning. Choose either this one or the one above.

We will hold one full day of professional development to kick this off. Including:

  • Starting the Year
  • Google Classroom
  • Other useful Google tools for organization/executive functioning
  • Lessons learned from teachers/teams that already have them
  • more... (what do YOU want to know?)
