1:1 Initiative

Medway's Vision for Digital Learning

Medway Public School students will learn in personalized, digitally-rich environments that authentically and effectively integrate technology, ensuring they will thrive in their future endeavors in an interconnected, global community.

We are pleased to announce the continuation of the Medway Public Schools 1:1 Chromebook initiative. As a result of this initiative, all students in Grades 5 -12 will be issued a school-owned Chromebook that will be available to them at all times, whether at school or home.

Through a blended approach, students will communicate with teachers and peers, collaborate, and demonstrate their learning. This blended learning approach also offers a diversified learning experience that meets the needs of all student's learning styles. 

We strive to provide students with on-demand access to technology. Chromebooks will provide opportunities for students to think critically in a collaborative environment. Through exploration and inquiry, students will be able to communicate their ideas creatively in manners that were not previously available to them.

Policies and Procedures
To facilitate our vision for Digital Learning, we have developed several policies and procedures to help guide our families and students on their educational journey. Please review the following documents.

This insurance covers repairs and replacements, providing peace of mind for families. We highly encourage families to take advantage of this offer to avoid the potentially high costs of device repair, prices listed below.
