  • Overview

    In Denton ISD, our 1:1 program will continue our commitment to empower our teachers and students in pursuit of our mission to create lifelong learners who impact their local and global community. Having digital devices available to students 24/7 will support the design of lessons that meet the individual needs of learners both inside and outside the four walls of the traditional classroom. Technology is a foundational tool students will use to support the development of the attributes of the Denton ISD Profile of a Future-Ready Learner.

    Devices at Home

    Chromebook use will be filtered and monitored both on and off campus using a district-owned filter and management software.
