Technology in Payette District

Payette School District has experienced an explosion of technology in the classroom over the last several years. We have moved from a one-man Instructional Technology shop that now requires multiple technicians to keep everything running efficiently for learning. Currently we are 1:1 with student Chromebook, beginning with second grade. Kindergarten and first grade students have daily access to iPads and Chromebooks, which are packed with high-quality instructional applications. Additionally, we still support computer labs at each school with Windows desktop machines. These are utilized for other instructional groupings and important during state testing weeks. Our students engage on more than a dozen different digital learning applications, selected by teachers to enhance classroom instruction. We blend traditional learning with the necessary digital learning of today’s modern classroom environment.

Payette High School assigns a Chromebook to each student to be taken home daily for assignments and homework. The required signed consent of liability and signed technology agreement must be on file prior to distribution. Students and parents are responsible for the proper care of devices and are liable for damage due to loss or mishandling. Parents of students in our other schools can make arrangements with the school if the child has need of a device at home. The same signed agreements are necessary. The District Office has a few Verizon Hot Spot data devices for check out for those families without Wi-Fi at home.

The district provides and oversees 200 computers for staff, along with the servers, printers, Wi-Fi, and necessary networking equipment to support the learning environment and management and reporting requirements of a school system.
