1:1 Program at Drake

Drake 1:1 Program


For 6th and returning 7th grade students during the 2019-2020 school year our Drake 1:1 program will remain the same with a purchase to own program. At the end of your child's 8th grade year, all Jeffco filters and apps will be removed and your child will keep it for personal use.

Remember that all Chromebook devices are considered a digital tool for school use only so they are turned in at the end of each school year and kept over the summer. This also allows us to clean them, update them, and attend to any glitches or fixes that need to be completed.

Attention 6th Grade Parents!

If you would like to purchase a warranty for your child's Chromebook, please click below. There are a variety of choices that are well worth the cost, especially considering the steep price for keyboard and screen damage. They range from a one time only fix to one time each year to full coverage.

Important Parent Information For 2019-2020

Incoming 6th grade students will be receiving the 2nd Generation 100e Lenovo and Drake MS will be continuing our 1:1 Program established last year. The price will be $223. It is highly recommended that parents make the full payment before registration on August 5th and 6th of 2019 to avoid long waits. This can be done online. For more information on our future transition to the DISTRICT 1:1 PROGRAM please open the LETTER FROM PRINCIPAL.

Please Note: New 7th grade students will come to the library to be assigned a Chromebook for the year. These students will not be participating Drake's current 1:1 program due to our transition to the district wide program but will instead use a Chromebook that will remain school property. 

8th grade students will continue using the Chromebooks available at school.
