CHROMEBOOKS (grade 3-8)

Chromebooks have proven to be a cost-effective solution for providing students with access to vetted educational online resources and tools. Making these resources available 24/7 allows for any time, anywhere learning and encourages students to become responsible consumers and creators of information.   The change extends beyond equipment, to an overall change in the classroom. This change is a learning curve, a buffet table, with endless choices and possibilities. Please be patient with us all as we venture out! 


Acceptable Use Policy


The ADW's "Technology and Internet Usage Agreement" is now incorporated into TADS.  This Agreement will be covered with all students during Computer Lab at the beginning of each school year.  Students will be required to sign the agreement, after a class discussion, in order to utilize all forms of technology on our school premises. 

NOTE:  Strict adherence to this policy must be maintained by each student during each school year.  This policy includes all technology and internet usage in the school building.  Students are forbidden to access their email and any social media accounts while in school.
