What is the Future-Ready 1:1 Program?

  • Future-Ready 1:1 Chromebook

    All middle school and high school students at NTPS have a Chromebook issued to them.

    Starting the 2019-20 school year, all high school students will be assigned their own one-to-one (1:1) Chromebooks in protective cases. They will use the device throughout the school day to support learning and take it home for anytime, anywhere learning. Our middle school students have already been assigned their Chromebooks and the program's success allowed for rollout to high school students.

    At this time, NTPS has no plans to pursue a 1:1 take home program at our elementary schools. We have been adding additional classroom-assigned Chromebooks to each grade level, starting with 5th grade during the 2018-19 school year. The district will continue to expand access to our elementary students as funding and capacity permits.
