To address the need to potentially put into a place an iLearning Plan, the Oneida City School District will provide Chromebooks to all students in grades 3-12.  This is important to ensure that our students can continue to learn if we are out of school longer than anticipated.

The first fleet of Chromebook distribution was on Thursday, April 2nd for students in grades 7, 8 and 9.  

The Oneida City School district distributed Chromebooks by bus on Thursday, April 2nd for students in grades 7, 8 and 9. The door-to-door bus delivery of Chromebooks for students in grades 7, 8 and 9 followed the PDF routes listed below. In order to maintain social distancing, Chromebooks were placed on the bus stairs and someone from the household had to come to the bus to pick up the Chromebook and charger. The Chromebooks have been assigned by student and are expected to come back to school when school reopens as the district expands its 1:1 iLearning initiative in the classroom. 

Out of 441 Chromebooks for students in grades 7,8 and 9, the district successfully delivered 408. The district is working with the transportation department on scheduling another run for the 33 unsuccessful deliveries. School secretaries are calling homes to confirm addresses and another robo call/text/email will go out when the second run is scheduled.

The district is awaiting another order of Chromebooks for grades 3-6. More information about Chromebook delivery for students in grades 3-6 will be sent to families at a later date via a robo call, email and text. The district continues to meet and plan on how we can best service all students PK-12.

The district is testing a variety of solutions to extend the WiFi from our buildings to our students. A robo call/text/email will be going out to families once a solution has been tested for security and executed successfully.  

Parents and guardians are encouraged to reach out to their individual building if WiFi access is a concern.
