BYOD Initiative Coming this Fall

BYOD Initiative Coming this Fall

We are excited to begin a new chapter at HHS next Fall. We are starting a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative. 9th Graders will be expected to have a device, but all students in grades 10-12 are encouraged to participate, as well.

Our year is just around the corner. We’ve created a web page with all the information you will need. Please use this link for all things BYOD. Information will be frequently updated.

http://www.isd423.org/byod

We will be adding a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) as we get them, as well as other helpful links.

There are two Chromebooks we’re recommending right now. Those links are on the site, but feel free to go elsewhere if you wish.If you have questions, by all means, send those questions to Ms. Buckentin, Technology Integrationist, ISD423. Jocelyn.buckentin@hutch.k12.mn.us

Again, if you are a 9th Grader looking for information on renting a BYOD device, you must qualify financially using the same criteria as free/reduced lunch process. For 2015-16, this cannot happen until the new form is released on August 1. There will be a $30 insurance fee / year for these devices. If interested in that, please contact Central Office at 234-2860 to get this year’s form after August 1.

ISD 423 Named for AP District Honors

District 423 is among 10 Minnesota districts to be recognized for the 5th Annual National AP Honor Roll. The College Board AP District Honor Roll is formed with data from 34 AP tests for various subjects, and has been ongoing for five years.

AP classes are optional to high school students, allowing those who excel at a topic an opportunity for a challenge. After taking an AP class, students have the option of taking the AP test for that topic. Scores not only help schools with another source of data, but can also count toward college credit for students.At District 423, 313 students are currently enrolled in 10 AP classes, ranging from AP English to AP Music Theory. This is a jump from the past year, when 200 students were enrolled in AP classes.

“Teachers are becoming more confident. As kids read that confidence … they respond well to it,” Walsh said. “It is always the result of a lot of hard work and commitment. It is a covenant between students and teachers that we are signing up to work hard for each other.”
“While we take these high-rigor tests at the high school, the work is done throughout the district,” Daron VanderHeiden, District Superintendent said. “Hutchinson High School does not gain this type of AP result without a systemic emphasis on rigorous coursework (at all grade levels).”“It is inspiring for me to hear a new freshman describe which AP classes they plan to take,” Walsh said. “In two or three years I think we could see enrollment at 500. I really think we could.”
