1 to 1 Device Program
As was started last year, the Ashburnham Westminster Regional School District will be continuing its 1:1 Chromebook initiative. Similar to last year, all students grades K-12 will be issued a Chromebook to use both in school and at home. The device that is being issued this year will be the “permanent” device for your student. Students will keep this device until they either leave the district or until they reach a grade level where the devices are replaced. Students will receive a new device in grades K, 5 and 9 going
