AGCS 1:1 Program Information

AGCS 1:1 Program Information
Posted on 07/24/2019
AGCS is preparing for the 2019-2020 school year related to its 1:1 technology initiative and steps need to be taken in order for your child(ren) to be issued their device, or have their device reconnect to our network, when we return to school.

Please complete the following tasks as soon as possible to help AGCS plan and ensure a smooth start to the school year.

 

1.)   Please visit the school’s website to gain useful information regarding the 1:1 program plan

2.)   Review the AGCS 1:1 Program Handbook

3.)   Complete the 1:1 Parent Acknowledgement Form


The success of each school year’s rollout at the beginning of the year will depend greatly on the early completion of the required paperwork and payment of the technology fee by parents/guardians.  In a 1:1 school environment, failure to have devices individually assigned to students or connecting to our network could impact their classroom experience at the beginning of the year.

 

To ensure the timely completion of the above items so that the start of the school year is a successful one, AGCS will be “holding” the release of student’s schedules in ParentPortal until families have completed the 2019-2020 Acknowledgement and Agreement formFamilies must complete this process each year.


AGCS will be implementing a new online payment system, Edutrak, for school based fees and activities in the 2019-2020 school year.  This will not replace SchoolCafe for student lunch payments/balances. The yearly technology fee will be the first opportunity that parents have to engage with this new system.  More information will be coming related signing up and utilizing this system in the upcoming weeks. For planning purposes, we do ask that all technology fees are paid by the end of the first week of school.

 

We look forward to providing AGCS students with modern learning tools and the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century.  Our goal is that problem solving, creativity, communication, and collaboration skills will be enhanced and will help build a foundation for college and career readiness. It is our hope that the 1:1 initiative, paired with the strong pedagogical skills of our teachers, will provide real world, relevant experiences that will better prepare our students to compete in a technology-rich world.
