Transforming Our Learning Environment
School District of New Berlin (SDNB) teachers frequently utilize technology tools and online applications to deliver instruction and create meaningful, customized learning experiences for students. Through these digital practices, we are better able to focus on how our learners develop the skills that are important for success in today’s world – skills such as creation, communication, critical thinking and collaboration.
To support a more robust learning environment, the SDNB continues to move toward a 1:1 digital learning environment. Increasing access to technology supports the broader goal of preparing our students for life and learning in and outside of the district through personalized learning.
The first students to receive Chromebooks were those who entered grades 7, 8 and 9 in the 2015-16 school year. 2016-17 will be the second year of 1:1 device implementation with each student entering grades 7, 11, and 12 receiving a district-issued Chromebook.
Optional Device Replacement Plan
The School District of New Berlin (SDNB) is providing an annual, optional device replacement plan to cover losses and failure that are excluded or that exceed the value of the existing comprehensive device warranty. Please review the entire Chromebook Optional Replacement Plan.
If you choose to enroll in the optional device replacement plan, you may submit payment via the Campus Portal at https://goo.gl/znY6xo or via check to SDNB - Technology Department.
