Technology Access for Grades K-12

District 110 is preparing our learners to meet the demands of their future as global citizens, digital learners, innovative thinkers, and collaborative problem-solvers. This means creating high-tech, global opportunities for our learners. In this District 110 Technology Plan, our learners will have the opportunity to master the school curriculum using and expanding their creativity, communication, collaboration, and critical-thinking skills.

This technology plan provides technology resources to all classrooms in kindergarten through Grade 12. District 110 is committed to providing a high-quality learning experience that is relevant and engaging for today’s students and fosters life-long learning. Teachers will integrate student devices in the classroom to

  • enhance and accelerate learning,

  • leverage technology for individualizing instruction,

  • increase student engagement, and

  • strengthen necessary skills, such as communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking.

District 110 Plan for Student Access to Technology Tools

Bring Your Own Device Grades 5–12
In order to provide high-quality learning experiences for students, every 5th through 12th grade student in Waconia Public Schools is required to bring a technology device to class. We have two options for families to choose from to ensure their student is prepared to learn at school at the onset of the 2024-25 school year.

Option 1: Student uses a device they own.
Families can purchase a device or use a device the family already owns. The device must meet the following criteria: District 110 Device Requirements

Option 2: Student can be issued a District-owned device (zero to $50/yr cost)

  • Students can be issued a Chromebook from our current inventory. Optional device insurance can be purchased for $50 per year.
  • Devices will be available for check-out at your child's school during open house in the fall.
