What is 1:1 Empower
 

Cleburne ISD has implemented a 1:1 Chromebook initiative giving all 6th-12th students the opportunity to use a District issued device in and out of the classroom. Additionally, 1st-5th-grade students will have a "stay-at-school" 1:1 environment. PK and K students will have an iPad cart in their classroom for educational use.  

The purpose of the 1:1 initiative is to enhance the learning of our students by giving them the 21st-century skills needed to be competitive in the local and global market.

Student Letter

Dear Cleburne ISD Parents and Students,


Chromebooks have been assigned to every middle and high school student to provide an equitable learning opportunity. Chromebooks enable our students to access digital resources to support a personalized learning experience, equipping them with the skills needed to be competitive in local and global markets. The proper care of student assigned technology is vital to the continued funding of the program.


Cleburne ISD will be implementing the following costs for the repair of Chromebooks. Charges will be assessed each school year and are subject to change.


If the Chromebook is lost, stolen, or damaged, the student is required to report the incident to the librarian the next school day and is responsible for any repair/replacement fee as shown below and in the 1:1 Student Handbook.


Accidental Damage, Loss, or Theft:

  • 1 - time accidental damage, lost, or stolen
    • No charge
  • 2 - time accidental damage, lost, or stolen
    • Standard: $45.00
    • Reduced lunch: $25.00
    • Free lunch: $10.00
    • The student will check the Chromebook out from the librarian daily until the fee is paid
    • Once the fee is paid, the student will be issued a replacement Chromebook
  • 3 - time accidental damage, lost, or stolen
    • Standard: $45.00
    • Reduced lunch: $25.00
    • Free lunch: $10.00

Intentional Damage/Destruction

  • If upon investigation it is found that Chromebook damage is deliberate and results in more than 50% of the value of the device, the device is deemed a total loss, the full cost of the device will be charged to the student
  • The student will not be issued a replacement Chromebook and will check a Chromebook out from the librarian daily the rest of the school year

Replacement Parts (Power Adapter or Chromebook Case):

  • $20.00 for each replacement
