The end of the school year is quickly approaching and we are making end of year preparations.

Students in these grades will not need to turn in their devices before the end of the school year.

Upper Perk Learns: Why 1-to-1?
Digital Equity - Upper Perk believes that all students should have the opportunity to succeed, regardless of socioeconomic status. To that end, Upper Perk has created an environment in which all students have "Digital Equity" in terms of information access, digital learning platform, and physical device.
Sustainable Model for Innovative Learning - From a fiscal perspective, having a 1:1 environment provides a Sustainable Model for Innovative Learning by having a predictable and cost-effective mechanism for digitization. Computer labs are gradually becoming obsolete, less wiring is needed, and digital learning tools are readily accessible by all students.Level of Support and Management for Devices
- Standardizing on a digital learning platform and physical device offers economies of scale and other efficiencies in terms of support and management.
Consistency of instructional practice and professional development - Teachers and administrators know what to expect when all students have digital equity, so they can plan and improve accordingly.
Research on impact of technology on student achievement (Project Red) - Research consistently shows a positive correlation between the use of technology and student achievement on a variety of academic measurements.
