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). Nine schools have been selected to go to UTA status at some time during the 2019-20 school year to add to the four schools in TSD that we already maintain at UTA status (MVHS, CBMS, HPK8, and LEES).
Student devices come from three possible types, 1. iPad, 2. HP G2 X360 EE Chromebook, and 3. HP 11 G7 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.
