Welcome to the Harrison High School 1 to 1 Pages

  • OVERVIEW

    One-to-one refers to a program where one device is provided for every student. During the 2015-2016 school year, every student in grades 10 through 12 will receive a Chromebook provided by the school district with a chromebook fee of $25. The district is pleased to move forward with this exciting step and access for our students. Students with personal device access allows us to enhance their educational options, provide organizational skills, and expand learning beyond the classroom. This provides a broader foundation for 21st century careers.

    The district has purchased the Lenovo N21 chromebook. We look forward to the potential that this technology provides students and instructional programs. These are brand new devices. Students will be issued the same device each year.
