Westonka Public Schools is addressing the changing needs of today’s students by transforming the method by which curriculum is delivered to students while personalizing the learning experience for students through Edge21, a preschool–grade 12 technology integration program.
Edge21 includes a 1:1 technology device program in which students in grades 5-12 use Chromebooks at school and beyond the classroom to access curriculum, research information, collaborate and communicate with other learners, create projects and solve problems.
MWHS Chromebook Distribution
Chromebooks will be distributed at Fast Start in August for All MWHS students in grade 8-12. The 2020 date is TBD. We highly encourage families to pick up Chromebooks on this date to insure students are ready to use the device on the first day of school.
Prior to Chromebook distribution all families are asked to complete the Chromebook Insurance Form Each student should bring a completed form to the MWHS Fast Start, GMS open house or the school's main office by August 30th. Rates for insurance remain at $40 per student with a $100 cap per family.
The insurance fee can be paid online through Skyward Family Access or in person at MWHS Fast Start or GMS Open House by cash or check. Families who opt not to take insurance still need to complete the form and will be responsible for any repairs.

We also encourage students to use the Proxy Auto Auth Extension, which allows you to login at school and save credentials so you don't have to log in to the pop-up box.
