WHAT IS THE POLICY FOR THE 1:1 DEVICE IN UPPER SCHOOL?
Over the past few years, LCA has led the way in leveraging technology for increased learning in Walton County. We were the first school in the county to introduce the iLearn initiative, including of a 1:1 learning platform, requiring every 6th – 12th grade student to bring a device to school.
In order to continue an effective 1:1 device environment, LCA implemented a standardized device program. Among the benefits of having all students on a single device are the ability to monitor student activity on the device 24/7, the ability to provide additional firewalls and content filters, the ability to dismantle access to the Internet during online assessments and full tech support provided by LCA’s IT department as well as support from the manufacturer of the device.
