General 1:1 Information

  • Phenix City Schools began a 1:1 initiative in 2015 by implementing take-home iPads in grades 6-8. The program has since expanded to include take-home Chromebooks for students in grades 6-12. In addition, students in upper elementary grades have the benefit of an electronic device for school-use only. Usage of the devices is governed by the PCBOE Acceptable Use Policy, found on pp.42-47 of the PCBOE Student Code of Conduct. Parents are encouraged to read the FAQ for Parents and Students Page, as well as the following information provided at Parent Nights.

  • Why did we choose Chromebooks for the 1:1 initiative?

    Posted by:

    Some factors that contributed to the decision were cost, ability to manage devices, and our desire for students in these grade levels to not only have a keyboard but cloud storage in preparation for college and career readiness.

  • What is G Suite?

    Posted by:

    G Suite (formerly GAFE) is simply Google Apps for Education. For us, it means that each student and teacher has a Google account with unlimited storage. Using Google Classroom, teachers and students can share files digitally without the need for printing.
