1:1 Chromebook Program

OLSH students are issued a Chromebook for use during and outside of school. Providing our students with a device supports and enhances the way we teach, creating an equal opportunity for all learners, providing access to the same technology needed to interact and learn.
Other goals of this initiative include:
  • Engage students and keep them engaged
  • Prepare students for the 21st century and life beyond high school
  • Take advantage of online textbooks and have resources readily available
  • Ensure pen lines of communication among students, faculty, and parents
  • Increase collaboration

Features of OLSH Technology

  • Other computer resources for students include both PC and Mac desktop computers, MacBook Pro laptops, and iPads. These are housed in the Tisch Family Library, the computer lab, and in classrooms via mobile carts.  Seniors may also sign out laptops for use during study halls and laptops are available for students in the After-School Tutoring Program to take home as needed.
  • All faculty are provided with laptops and iPads for use in the classroom.  These devices allow for streaming content to be viewed on each classroom’s Epson interactive projector via Apple TV.
  • Families have 24/7 access to student grade and attendance information via OLSH’s web-based student information system, Blackbaud.
