1:1 iPad Program

Program goals

Garden City Public Schools uses technology to enhance learning.  All students in grade 3-6 and 9-12 are issued an iPad to enhance student learning.  This 1:1 iPad program will continue to grow as we include to new grades levels in each of the next two years.  By the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year, all students in grades 1st through 12th will have an iPad and kindergarten and early childhood will have class iPads.  This program incorporates many digital curricula, tools for student collaboration and work flow, and individualized instruction in all content areas.  


Garden City Public Schools have a robust wireless infrastructure to support the 1:1 iPad program.  More information can be found using the quick links on the right.  

iPad Program Background

The District began looking into implementing a 1:1 program in 2010 as we prepared to open the new Garden City High School.  Within this 21st century campus, our students need 21st Century learning.  Groups of teachers, administrators, and students visited schools that had 1:1 programs.  Observing the types of learning and instruction taking place, we knew we wanted a device that would allow for student engagement, critical thinking and problem solving, self-direct learning, and personalized learning.
