Sumner County Families,
I am proud to introduce you to an innovative and transformative initiative we are starting this year in our district. Sumner County Schools will provide iPads for all K-12 certified teachers and implement a one-to-one iPad program for all 6th to 12th-grade students. We have named this new initiative "Unlocking Genius.” We believe that every student has unique talents and abilities, waiting to be unlocked. With this ambitious initiative, we are not only adapting our educational practices but also connecting our learners and empowering them to become lifelong thinkers and problem solvers. The integration of iPads into our classrooms will bridge the gap between traditional education and the digital age, preparing our students for future success. Sumner County Schools aims to create a forward-thinking learning environment that prepares students for the challenges of the 21st century. By equipping K-12 certified teachers with iPads, the district is investing in their professional development and empowering them to enhance their instructional methods. Teachers will begin receiving their iPads by mid-August, with high school students receiving theirs by the end of August. We anticipate middle school students and third through fifth grade classroom teachers to receive their iPads by Fall Break. Our comprehensive Responsible Use Agreement provides an overview of the steps taken to ensure students online safety and outlines student’s responsibilities and our district’s expectations for our Unlocking Genius initiative. Our school leadership teams are currently working to create plans to deploy iPads to students and teachers as soon as they receive them. You will receive further communication from your school and your child’s teacher once the iPads are ready to use. Equipping our students with iPads is a transformative step towards a future-ready education. As we embrace technology’s potential, let us ensure that our students use these iPads responsibly. Together, we build a brighter tomorrow for our young learners, equipping them with the skills to thrive in a rapidly evolving world. I am excited to see where our students and teachers will take this initiative and the opportunities it will create for them in the future.
Scott Langford, Ed. D Director of Schools
