Hello ! Welcome to Chromebook Initiative Student/Parent Agreement!
MCS 1:1 Chromebook Initiative
The mission of the MCS 1:1 initiative (one electronic device for each student) is to ensure that Minerva Central School District students in grades 3 - 12 have regular, equitable access to the digital tools and resources that allow them to be successful 21st century learners. To reach this goal, the district will provide students with digital devices that can expand their learning opportunities beyond the walls of Minerva Central School.
Minerva Central School has adopted a 1:1 Chromebook program, which will provide an electronic device (i.e., Chromebook) to each student for his/her use during the day. These devices will be issued to students at the beginning of the school year and will be stored in a Chromebook cart at school.
