Students - students are trained by teachers on projects, have access to lynda.com, ask for assistance from the media specialist, and can request a technology mentor via the student help desk.
Families are encouraged to ask students about the one-to-one program and how their student is utilizing the device for learning. Families can encourage responsible use of laptops.
