The Urban Assembly for Music and Art (UAMA) is pleased to announce that beginning in the 2017-18 school year we are providing 1:1 technology to every UAMA student. Just like college and the world of work, UAMA students need to be able to work inside and out of school, virtually and in-person, on mobile technology or using a pen and paper, so we want all of our students to be connected! Through a partnership with Sprint, we are able to provide smart phones with wireless hotspots to every UAMA student in grades 9-12. The phone comes with 3 GB of free monthly high-speed data to use for research, homework, and overall academic enrichment through technology. The wireless hotspot also enables parents to connect to the internet either through the phone or with their own device so that they can log on to IO Education/Pupil Path where they have 24/7 access to their students assignments, grades, and attendance information. This technology will enable real-time connection between our students, families, and school, and will open the door to information about college, scholarships, jobs, and new possibilities.
They will be coming in mid fall, but in order to receive the phone. The student must return the packet filled out by the parent or guardian by this Friday. We will give you the rules of the new phones and the expected date of arrival soon.
