Jeffco’s 1:1 program provides 1st-12th grade students in neighborhood and option schools a district Chromebook to create an equitable and sustainable model for technology-enabled classrooms that prepares students to thrive in a connected, digital world in alignment with the Jeffco Thrives Strategic Plan

The program provides students in grades 1-12 access to a district-purchased and managed Chromebook to personalize their learning. As we close the digital device divide by providing all students with a personalized device, we must address the inequities in classrooms to digital content and tools to transform learning.

Grade 4 and Up All devices go home with students nightly. Device goes home over the summer.


Students in grades K-12 are also provided  a variety of digital applications, which give them opportunities to demonstrate learning in creative and rigorous ways. A consistent set of tools provides expanded equitable experiences essential for students to achieve the Jeffco strategic plan. Each of the technology tools supports students as creators, collaborators, and innovative problem solvers, rather than consumers of information.

The program also allows for professional development and learning for teachers to use the provided tools and devices to transform the learning experience for students. Having a consistent set of tools and opportunities for teacher training allows for more rigorous learning and student engagement in addition to  deeper technology integration.
