Verizon Innovative Learning Initiative
Forest Oak Middle School was selected to participate in the Verizon Innovative Learning initiative, a program which provides free technology and free internet access for all staff and students to help close the digital divide and enable transformative teaching and learning. As part of your child’s instructional program, staff will be using a number of core and supplemental applications (apps) to create innovative and dynamic learning experiences using MCPS-provisioned iPads. In order for students to receive their iPads, the following documents need to be completed and returned to school. In addition, there is an online digital citizenship module that parents/guardians need to complete for the Verizon Innovative Learning initiative. This module can be found in the parent portal or can completed during parent information nights on September 19th and 24th at 10am, 1pm or 6:00 pm.
