Hello Cougar Families and Happy Sunday,

Great news!

We want to thank the voters of Evergreen and Jefferson County for supporting 5A and 5B, which has made possible this exciting news. Beginning next year, all 5th and 9th grade students will be issued school devices, specifically Touch Screen Chromebooks. The devices will follow the students until graduation, with a plan to replace the devices every four years. Central administrators are hard at work outlining all of the logistics, timing, and details. At this time parents of incoming freshmen don’t need to purchase a personal device for their student to use for school next year. Here at EHS, we are hard at work developing training and allocating resources to prepare our faculty for a successful implementation of this initiative. Look for more communication from the district coming soon.

Two additional points here: First, as principal I am acutely aware of both the upsides and downsides to technology in the lives of our kids. At EHS, our goal will not be to use technology for technology’s sake, but to leverage technology where it makes sense to enhance the teaching and learning process.

Second, we are extremely fortunate to have a partner in planning for and funding training for this implementation, the Evergreen High School Education Foundation. The EHSEF has already funded the majority of our Chromebooks, as well as multiple training opportunities for our teachers. Going forward, this group will continue to partner with us in ensuring our teachers have access to opportunities associated with best practices in educational technology. The EHSEF is currently looking for new board members, as many of our current members’ children will be graduating this year! If interested, please contact Board President Dan O’Neil at dan31638@gmail.com.

Thanks all, and see below for additional important announcements and information.
