WTW's FCPSOn Info and Distribution Plan

August 05, 2019

We are excited for each student to have their own laptop this year at Woodson HS! 

Teachers are busy planning lessons and activities that will blend the use of technology with instruction.  The device is a Dell computer, chosen for its usability and durability, which will allow all students access to the same software programs across FCPS, allowing students to use specific programs that all students will have installed on their FCPS devices.  

Students will use the devices daily but not for the entire day. They are able to take them to and from school, so personal computers can stay at home for use after school. Students are expected to bring charged laptops to school each day to fully engage in the learning when the tool is being utilized; loaners will not be provided for forgotten laptops. FCPS computers are covered for accidental damage, so protect your personal computer by leaving them at home.

Should an FCPS device break, students will be able to turn them in for repair and receive a loaner on the spot!  For SOL testing, the state mandates that all testing is done on an FCPS computer – these devices check the box!   Thus, students will test on computers that they are comfortable using.  Since these computers hold a charge for the full school day, students can still take as long as necessary to complete the exam.

There is a yearly technology fee of $50 which will be billed through MySchoolBucks.  For more information regarding FCPSOn, please visit: https://www.fcps.edu/resources/technology/fcpson

When picking up the student laptop, students or parents must present a photo ID.  In additon, students must be present to pick up their device.

- Tuesday, August 13th 8:00 AM-4:30 PM in Cavalier Hall

- Saturday, August 17th 9:00 AM-1:00 PM in Cavalier Hall
