Take-Home Learning Devices for Every Student

4J schools are scheduling pickup times for tablets, laptops before classes begin

Every student in Eugene School District 4J will be provided a take-home device for learning online and on-site this year. High school students will receive laptop computers; elementary and middle school students will receive tablets (for grades 3–8, iPads come with keyboards). The district will have enough devices to provide one to every student, whether they plan to attend their regular school or Eugene Online Academy.

Schools will notify families when technology pickup days are scheduled. Parents and students do not need to request a device, just watch for information from their school about when and where to pick up their student learning device.

If your student is attending Eugene Online Academy, please pick up a device at their regular school, i.e. the school they would be attending if not the Eugene Online Academy.

The pickup schedules for elementary, middle and high schools that have been announced are listed below. This web post will be updated as dates are added and adjusted. Technology distribution began with middle schools, followed by high schools. Elementary schools will be last, as the district is awaiting delivery of protective cases for the iPads, and supply is delayed.

Students will be expected to use a district-issued device even if they have another tablet or laptop at home. Some apps and programs are better accessed through a 4J tablet or laptop, and the district’s technology team can fix problems more readily on a district-issued device. If your student checked out a device last spring and kept it for schoolwork over the summer, please turn in the old one for updating and pick up a new device that has the programs and applications needed for comprehensive distance learning this fall.

The district also has a limited number of mobile WiFi hotspots available to lend to families who do not have another way to access the internet at home, and additional options for ways students may be able to get online for learning. (Internet Access)

Online training for parents and students on the Canvas and Seesaw learning management systems will be offered before school begins in September—please watch for details to come. Elementary schools will continue to use Seesaw as the learning management system for instruction. Middle and high schools will use the Canvas platform. This is a change from last spring, when middle and high schools used Google Classroom for emergency learning. Canvas is a robust learning management system for more organized, accessible and seamless instruction.

Technology Pickup Schedule

NOTE: Due to hazardous air quality, distribution days scheduled the week of Sept. 8–11 could not be held. Pickup times will be rescheduled the week of Sept. 14–18. For the new dates, see https://www.4j.lane.edu/2020/09/elementary-school-device-distribution-2

Please wear a face covering and follow physical distancing and other protocols at your school when you pick up your student’s device.
