1:1 Student/Parent Handbook
A stakeholder group of parents, students, and staff created a handbook that brings some concreteness to a 1:1 initiative in Pasco. The stakeholder group identified guiding principles for the 1:1 initiative and studied approaches from two dozen other school districts, identifying areas that could be replicated, adjusted and avoided in a Pasco implementation. The current version of the handbook is below.
