This year the district began implementing 1:1 at the elementary level.
All fifth grade students now have daily access to a Chromebook. Each student has a Google school account and will utilize Canvas to access online assignments. All students have the opportunity to log into their Google Chrome school account from home. The following link has directions for you to help your child log on to their Google account. Additionally, you can find the Canvas link either in the student bookmarks or at the District 100 website under the resources tab.
