Ubiquitous Technology Access (UTA) Schools
There are many forms of UTA including One-to-One (student issued take home), One-to-Classroom (core classroom stay-in-school), and Daily Checkout (student checkout stay-in-school). We currently have 14 UTA schools implemented or planned in TSD with 6 more eligible schools.
Student devices come from three possible types, 1. iPad, 2. HP G2 X360 EE Chromebook, and 3. HP 11 G8 EE Touch Chromebook. A UTA school has enough student devices for all enrolled students rounded up to the nearest 25, plus 30 for their media center. UTA schools receive significant upgrades and access to student technology in classrooms and labs. TSD’s Innovative Technology Services has begun implementing UTA with the first school on the list and will continue through the list by deploying new student technology and arranging professional development throughout the school year. Other schools will implement UTA when they are ready and resources become available.
Current and Planned UTA Schools:
- Mountain View High School (One-to-One)
- Conrad Ball Middle School (Daily Checkout)
- Laurene Edmondson Elementary School (One-to-Classroom)
- High Plains School (One-to-Classroom)
- Turner Middle School (Daily Checkout)

For the steps needed for a school to become a UTA school, see the UTA Planning Steps here.
As funds become avialable, the following schools will be considered for UTA technology implementation. However, due to budget shortfalls, these schools are not yet scheduled to become UTA schools this school year.
- Big Thompson Elementary School
- Lucile Erwin Middle School
- Cottonwood Plains Elementary School
- Thompson Valley High School
- Centennial Elementary School
- Ponderosa Elementary School
Other schools that do not have UTA technology will be evaluated for readiness in future years by the TSD Technology Advisory & Leadership Committee (TALC).
