Student 1:1 Device Collection / Summer Use Program

The end of the school year is fast approaching!  This year, a majority of student 1:1 devices will not be collected prior summer break.  With only a few exceptions listed below, students will be keeping their chromebooks for the summer.  

 

Exceptions:
(Students in these grade levels will be turning in their assigned device)

  • Grade 12 (Chromebooks)
  • Grade 1 (iPads)
  • Grade K (iPads)
  • Grade pre-K (iPads)

(All other grades (2nd-11th) are keeping their device! )

 

In August, some grade levels will exchange their device for brand new ones.  Information on this will come later in the summer.  

 

Use of these devices will be entirely up to parents/guardians.  To assist parents/guardians in this matter, the District has recently launched GoGuardian Parent - a mobile app designed to provide parents/guardians insight and control over their student's online activity when on school-managed devices.   With GoGuardian Parent, parents/guardians can see student activity and even set “offline hours” to restrict screen time.   For information about GoGuardian Parent, refer to the email sent 5/16 or the article posted on our website on 5/16. 

 

The rules and expectations regarding 1:1 devices are outlined in the “1:1 Handbook”. 

The handbook and its contents do hereby extend through the Summer 2024 term.

The Allegheny Valley School District is launching "GoGuardian Parent" - a mobile app designed to provide parents/guardians insight and control over their student's online activity when on school-managed devices. First, the GoGuardian Parent app provides an overview of your child's online activity on school-managed devices and accounts - this overview includes the apps, extensions, documents, and websites your student visited. Second, GoGuardian Parent provides you with an additional set of internet controls that you can set for out-of-school hours. GoGuardian Parent was created to help provide students additional educational support and is a companion to the classroom engagement and internet filtering tools that our school uses.

 

What is included in this app:

  • Top 5 overview of your student's online activity
  • Any teacher interventions related to your student's online activity
  • 30-day overview of your student's online activity
  • Ability to block websites on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours
  • Ability to pause internet access on school-issued devices during out-of-school hours, either on-demand or at a scheduled time
