One-2-Web Student Guide


    The purpose of the One-2-Web Chromebook program in SD27J is to provide a collaborative and creative environment for all learners. This environment will enable and support students and teachers to implement transformative uses of technology while enhancing students’ engagement with the academic content.

    Our goal is to help students develop the necessary skills to live and work successfully in an increasingly advanced, technology-driven world. These skills are expanding and redefining how they live, learn, work, and play. We want to leverage technology by providing engaging and powerful learning experiences for all students across all curricular areas.


    Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. On the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. The One-2-Web Chromebook initiative will provide opportunities to integrate technology into the curriculum anytime and anyplace. These learning opportunities will promote continuous, dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents, and the extended community.

    It is expected that Parents/Guardians be proactive in establishing home guidelines around appropriate use regarding student access to adult-themed websites and materials as well as Internet safety.


    The 27J inappropriate-content filter works outside of 27J buildings and will apply filtering no matter who is logged in and on what network.

You have the right to monitor your student’s use of the device.


    It is expected that Parent/Guardians be proactive in ensuring their student and the device is ready for academic use.


    The device provided to your child is intended to be an instructional tool. Please ensure that it is accessible to students for school work at home, but also promote healthy practices such as time limits and a quiet place to work for students. The device is considered a learning tool for all family members. Parents/guardians and other siblings are encouraged to use the device to supplement their learning, provided the student assigned the device has priority for their school work.


    Your school and 27J  is committed to providing educational opportunities for interested parents/guardians.  Online resources, information, and updates about the program can be found on the school/district website.


    Additionally, support with newly-adopted curriculum and technology may be available through 27J and your school. Information about these offerings will be communicated through your school.
