Board of Education Makes Final Approval of the D128 Digital Learning Strategy

At its June 1 special meeting, the Community High School District 128 Board of Education approved the D128 Digital Learning Strategy (DLS) to be effective for the 2015-16 school year. The DLS will provide each D128 student with a chromebook for educational use.

The district purchased 1,000 Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 11e Touchscreen Chromebooks at $430 each for the recently completed Spring Pilot Program. The District has learned a great deal about the distribution, student use, parent concerns, mobile infrastructure and daily classroom integration of the chromebooks as a result of the pilot program. Student and staff response has been overwhelmingly positive. The Board’s unanimous vote included the approval of purchasing the remaining 2,600 chromebooks needed for all students for use during the 2015-16 school year.  

At the meeting, the Board also approved a cost-share program between the District and D128 families. Families will pay $50 per year for the device and pay a total of $200 over four years while in the district. The student will then own the device at the end of his/her tenure in D128. The District would subsidize the remainder of the cost ($230) for each device. Next year’s seniors, juniors and sophomores will have the option of buying their chromebooks by paying the remaining balance of $200 at the time they graduate.

The District will also provide a laptop, chromebook or tablet for certified staff members.
Sustained professional development for both students and teachers will be a linchpin in the district’s efforts to realize overall success with the DLS. Designated staff will deliver professional development in the areas of technology, instruction and literacy and integrate all other building and district level professional development resources.  Each school will have professional development facilitators available on a full-time basis.
