WCSD 1:1 Program
Winterset Schools offers students with 1:1 computers grades 2-12, serving more than 900 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 is provided with a protective carrying case to travel home with the computer. 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, can also work on assignments offline as well.
Student laptops will be handed out before school starts for students in grades 10- 12. You must have all past due fees & fines paid and be registered for school. They will be handed out in the JH/HS Media Center at the following times:
Tuesday, August 7th from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.
Wednesday, August 8th 11 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Thursday, August 9th 8 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Freshman will get their laptops the night of orientation. Junior High students will get theirs during home room. New students will get their laptops the second day of school.
