Secondary Students to receive their own Chromebooks this Fall
Beginning in the 2016-17 School Year, all middle and high school students in the Sumner School District will be assigned a Chromebook for instructional purposes to use at school and home. Like a textbook, the device will be checked out to students at the beginning of the school year. Students will be given an orientation on the device and expectations for use at school and at home.
The Sumner School District views the use of electronic resources as central to the delivery of its educational program and expects that all students will use electronic resources as an essential part of their learning experiences. An effective public education system develops students who are globally aware, engaged, and capable of managing their lives and careers. Students need to be proficient and safe users of information, media, and technology to succeed in a digital world. Therefore, the District will use electronic resources accessed on Chromebooks as a powerful and compelling means for students to learn core subjects and applied skills in relevant and rigorous ways. The use of Chromebooks at home and at school will enable educators and students to access digital curriculum, communicate, collaborate and create; to think and solve problems; to manage their work; and to take ownership of their lives.
Future details will include communication on distribution, safety, assurance and guidelines for use. Administration is working in partnership with schools to finalize details and implementation plans.
Look for more information on the District Website about this exciting initiative! Funding for the initiative came from the 2014 voter-approved Technology Levy.
College Bound Scholarships for 7th and 8th Grade Students
The College Bound Scholarship is a financial aid program for 7th and 8th grade students who are eligible to participate. It is designed to inspire students to begin making their college and career plans without worrying about the cost of attending college.
Eligible students sign a pledge promising to graduate from high school, maintain a 2.0 GPA and be good citizens. In exchange, the state of Washington will pay for their college tuition and books - for up to four years or until the student earns a bachelor's degree. This four-year scholarship covers the cost of college tuition, fees, and a $500 stipend for books for low-income students who sign a pledge in 7th or 8th grade, promising to graduate from high school and demonstrate good citizenship.
The College Bound Scholarship provides hope and incentive for students and families who otherwise might not consider college as an option because of its cost.
Students may apply for the College Bound Scholarship if they meet one of the following criteria:
- Are eligible to receive free and reduced-price lunch
- Receive TANF benefits
- Are a foster youth
- Meet the income standards
Deadline to apply is June 30 of the student’s 8th grade year. This year's 7th graders are also advised to sign-up this year, but have until the end of their 8th grade year to complete the enrollment process. Students are encouraged to apply online at http://www.wsac.wa.gov/PreparingForCollege/CollegeBound. Paper applications are also available at all middle school offices in the Sumner School District. For more information, please contact your School Counselor or College Bound staff by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-888-352-0747.
