Chromebook Study

As you know, with the funding from Race to The Top District grant, Harmony Public Schools started a 1:1 technology initiative in the beginning of this school year, and handed a chrome book device to every single student and core subject teacher in grades 6 thru 12. All Harmony educators and leaders see this initiative as a tremendous opportunity to personalize student learning and radically improve achievement. With the right approach, leveraging technology can yield promising academic results and boost performance both for students and teachers. In an effort to assess effectiveness and improve our technology initiative, Harmony Public Schools intends to conduct a scholarly research on how technology integration into classrooms impacts students, teachers, and parents. This research will help school and district leaders at Harmony to make sound research-based judgments about future design and refinement of our technology programs. It will also give us a chance to get input from our most valued stakeholders. The researcher will keep participant identities confidential and will not release it to any Harmony employees, nor will he link any identities to survey inputs. We are excited about this research opportunity and would definitely like to see all our teachers, parents, and students participate as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support!

Chromebook Damage and/or Loss Procedures


Dear Parents,

Please see the procedures below about Chrome Books and insurance coverage details; we felt it was necessary to provide more clarification on the subject avoid future problems. If any damage or problem occurs to a chrome book please take it to Ms. Rawal, our Technology Teacher. She will follow up insurance procedures.

There are two separate insurance coverage (by Worth Ave. Group) and a limited factory warranty (by Lenovo):
1) Accidental Damage: All chrome books carry the accidental damage, which covers the device against damage resulting from accidents including drops, cracked screens, and liquid spills (These 3 are the most common cases).

2)Theft & Vandalism: This is optional and anybody who wants to sign up for this additional 1-year insurance. It is renewable in the beginning of each year.

3)Factory warranty: Only covers manufacture defects and mechanical failures caused by workmanship.

Both policies also specifically list various cases that are not covered under either type of insurance. We would highly suggest you read the entire part where it says "LOSSES WE WILL NOT COVER." This would inform you specifically what is covered and what is not, so you don't waste your time on dead claims.

*Cosmetic Damage
* Intentional Acts
*Theft From An Unattended Vehicle (applies to optional insurance
*Unexplained Loss or Mysterious Disappearance (applies to optional insurance)

Important notes:
1) For accidental damage claims: Your claim form should present circumstances describing loss resulting from an accidental incident.
2) For theft/vandalism claims: You cannot submit a claim without a police report. If the claim is about a lost device, it needs to be explainable, meaning the police report should state owner's knowledge as to place, time or manner of its loss.
3) For any type of loss/damage that is not covered by insurance (including rejected claims), the replacement or repair cost is charged to the assigned student.


Get Involved & Make a Difference!

The Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) hopes you will be active in the Endeavor community. The PTO has many activities planned for this year (see attached). We encourage you to become involved in as many of these activities as you feel reasonably possible. We have fun together and the students have enjoyable, meaningful experiences as a result of it. In addition, the PTO will be meeting at the school on the first Tuesday of every month at 8:30am or 4:30pm. We invite you to attend. The school and PTO will benefit from hearing your ideas, and you will be better informed about all upcoming events at the school.

The PTO also provides funding to the teachers for activities and items that the classes would otherwise not have. These activities and items include class trips, in-school programs, physical education, and fine arts support as PTO recognizes that they are all an important part of our children’s education. As you know, raising money is what allows the PTO to provide such assistance. Thus, they have planned a number of fundraisers. As with volunteering your time, we ask that you participate in as many as possible, but you should not feel obligated to participate in all of them.

With your help we are looking forward to the 2013-2014 school year being the best one ever for Endeavor. If you have any ideas, comments or suggestions, we want to hear from you. Communication is essential if the PTO is to fulfill its mission. Please contact HSEparents@gmail.com for more information.
