Did you know that St. Vrain students have more than 24,000 titles available to them in our extensive digital library?
In today’s digitally-fueled times, how might we teach our children to use technology in healthy ways and develop skills and habits that will help them be successful?
Accidents happen! The SVVSD Optional iPad Insurance Program for secondary students covers many of the costs associated with a damaged or lost iPad.
St. Vrain is excited to offer families of incoming 6th graders an opportunity to join a community-wide Schoology course designed to guide families through activities and conversations around school, home, technology and learning.
The start of a new school year is a great time to revisit your family’s media habits and create a family media plan. The American Academy of Pediatrics has a comprehensive tool that you can use to create your own customizable family media plan.
I want to share some examples of the type of positive impact learning technology is having from one of our schools. Julie Read, Longmont High School’s Learning Technology Coach, summarized the first twelve weeks with iPads at her school with a catchy video made on an iPad with Adobe Voice.

Julie also created an “interactive report” showing many of the great things already happening. Click here to view the “interactive report”.
Please know these activities are occurring in all of our schools. We live in an amazing time and are fortunate to have an opportunity to provide our students with world-class learning opportunities.

Want to know what your child is installing on their device, but you don’t want to interfere with instructional apps being installed?
In restrictions turn off the ability to delete apps. This way your child can install apps anytime but they need your restriction passcode to delete apps. Check the device occasionally to see what has been installed.
