LCS-ONEEducating in the 21st Century

In 2014, Lynchburg City Schools began a new and exciting journey—one that has supported the LCS mission of, “Every Child, By Name and By Need, to Graduation.” We set a course for meeting the 21st Century needs of our students through our LCS-ONE initiative, which has provided a personal computing device for students in grades 8 through 12. Original plans included grades 6 and 7, but were delayed—until now! We are pleased to be bringing the 6th and 7th grades on board our LCS-ONE journey. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, every 7th grader will receive their own personal Chromebook for use during school and to bring home during the school year. Sixth graders will receive theirs later in the fall. 

Chromebooks are turned in at the end of each school year and reissued the following school year over the course of a 4-year device lifecycle.
