WCSD 1:1 Program
Winterset Schools offers students with 1:1 computers grades 1-12, serving more than 1700+ students. Currently, in the high school we have Acer 14" Chromebooks, and in the Junior High, Middle School and Elementary we are using 11" Chromebooks. Each 7th - 12th grade student has the option of taking their computer home each night. Starting June 2019 students in grades 9-11 will have the option of taking thier Chromebook home over the summer. Grades 2nd - 6th will leave the computers at school and charge in their homeroom carts.
WCSD is a Google school, which means each student is provided with a free Gmail account under the @winterset.k12.ia.us domain name. With this account, students gain access to Google Drive which offers unlimited free cloud storage and access to all Google's online word processors. This allows the students to work on assignments together as a team virtually anywhere they have a WiFi connection, they can also work on assignments offline as well.
