What is a Next Generation 1:1 School?

Each student at AFJH will receive their own Chromebook to use for the school year. This is often referred to as being one-to-one (1:1). Students get to bring their Chromebook home each day and bring it back, charged, to use in their classes the next day. This creates an equitable  opportunity for each student to reach their goals by engaging in personal and collaborative learning.

Parent Resources & Important Steps

Students will be expected to bring their Chromebook to school each day. Lessons and use will depend on the teacher and what they have prepared to teach. It is important that your student charge their device each night to ensure it is ready for them to connect, discover, create, and share.

Each student will receive a charging cable for their Chromebook. We will label each Chromebook and charging cable with an identifying sticker with each student’s name.

If a Chromebook is charged each night, the device will work the entire day at school. Please help your student to make charging a habit/daily routine to ensure their device is ready to be used each school day.

Step 1
Sign Skyward Documents

At the beginning of each school year, parents need to electronically sign parent sections in the Skyward portal. This will allow your student to use technology in our district meetings and for your student to take district computers off campus. Click below to fill out the required information.

Step 2
Parent Blocksi Dashboard

Blocksi Parent Manager will allow you to enforce bedtime and time access on internet sites. You will also have the option to enforce stricter policies by blocking specific online content. You can also be warned when blocked content is accessed on their device. 

Blocksi Manager Parent Dashboard puts the parent, guardian, and Director of Technology on the same page and assure 1:1 Chromebook initiative acceptance by parents, teachers, and students. 


Step 3
Download Canvas Observer App

Canvas Observer will allow parents to see what is going on in Canvas courses, view due dates, teacher comments on assignments, and view scores and/or grades. 

This feature will not be available until the middle of August when classes are loaded into Canvas. Parents need to add this through their student’s Canvas account. 

Canvas is only used in grades 7-12 in the Alpine School District.
