1:1 at BBCHS
Beginning with the 2015-2016 school year, BBCHS rolled out over 1300 Chromebooks in carts throughout the school to enhance our teaching and learning environment. Starting with the 2017-2018 school year the district is transitioning to a fully 1:1 environment.  Almost every student is issued a district-owned Chromebook to use while they are enrolled in the district.  Students are responsible for the care and maintenance of their devices and may get service and support through the Technology Department.  It is a requirement that students bring their device to school each day with a fully charged battery.  Batteries last up to eight hours and students are encouraged to charge their device at home and leave the charger at home for safe keeping.  If a student damages his/her Chromebook, the student will be responsible for bringing the device to technology for repairs.   Cost of student  devices found to be damaged beyond repair or lost/stolen devices will be charged to student accounts.  Loaners will be issued to students while his/her assigned Chromebook is being fixed. 
1:1 Rationale
  • The nature of information and knowledge is changing.
  • Students learn differently today.
  • We live in a digital age, dominated by information, that sees technological advancements happening at an exponential rate.
  • We must prepare students for their futures, not our past.
  • Students have a fundamental right to expect an education that reflects these principles.

Our goal is to prepare students for their future: a global, digital world where they will be expected to use information and technology to create, examine, explore, communicate, and collaborate. Technology in the classroom helps students solve problems, gather and evaluate information, and disseminate work efficiently, through learning that is either self-paced and individualized or collaborative and cooperative. Using technology in the classroom expands the possibilities of teaching and learning.
