Clip to ScrapBook #4

Let me clarify a little. They’re Chromebooks. Every student has a login. When our high school started (we were already K-8) we started with only 9th and 10th graders and had maybe 50 kids. Computers and responsibility weren’t an issue. Then we expanded to 11th and added more students. With that boom in enrollment, I think the issue with computers was overlooked a little (bc many things our kids never do anything wrong *insert eyeroll*). I don’t really know but I had nothing to do with technology at the high school level.

We do not have a tech dept per-say. This past 2 years it was just me and one other person and we were both classroom teachers (elementary) at the time. The head administrator would never pay to put security on the computers. Yes it’s irresponsible but I’m not in charge and I can not control that. I was looking for ideas, not to be attacked because of the free for all it has been.
