Attention Parents or Guardians of all 6th-11th grade students…

Many years of hard work in providing our students with Chromebooks is finally happening!

The Vision for Teaching and Learning at Hayden Secondary School -

1:1 initiative gives students the tools to have instant access to the world of information and also to become producers rather than just consumers of information that is available through the use of technology. The goal of the initiative is to provide each 6th-11th grader in HSS 24/7 access to a Device (Lenovo and Asus Chromebooks) providing more technology opportunities to all students.

Hayden Secondary School is taking an aggressive initiative to transform teaching and learning within HSS. The 1:1 initiative allows several things to occur for the benefit of student learning, some of these include the following:

  • Promoting student engagement and enthusiasm for learning.
  • Encouraging collaboration among students, teachers, parents/or legal guardians, community members, and people throughout the nation and world through interactive capabilities and opportunities.
  • Reducing the use of worksheets and workbooks.
  • Guiding students in their learning and production of knowledge.
  • Allowing students access to information, along with an opportunity to connect it to their learning in a meaningful manner.

Your son or daughter will be given the user agreement on Wednesday, Sept. 30th to bring home.  Please read the agreement, in its entirety, with your son or daughter.  Your son or daughter WILL NOT be allowed to check out his or her Chromebook until the agreement is returned (with payment if you have chosen this option).  The due date for signed agreements, and payment, is Tuesday, Oct. 6th

There will be a parent meeting regarding Chromebooks on Tuesday, Oct. 6th at 6pm in the HS auditorium.  PLEASE JOIN US!  If you would rather wait until that meeting to sign your son or daughter’s agreement – that is just fine!

All questions you may have can be answered at the parent meeting on the 6th.
