management is the ADKAR® model explained below.
What is ADKAR®
ADKAR® is a sequential model created by the Prosci company that defines
what people go through when they experience change. The acronym stands
for Awareness, Desire, Knowledge, Ability and Reinforcement. It is the most
significant part of change management because it defines where and individual

surveys will also provide us with an indication of where resistance is appearing.
Based on that data, each school will have an individual change management
plan created for them to help them move toward the desired goals.
Phase 2 schools and beyond will be informed about tools to help them with
instructional readiness and cultural preparation (iTunes U course); instruction
(Common Sense Media, iBooks); and logistics for training and distribution (FAQs
and ITI Handbook).
Culture & Change Management
This is the person’s understanding of the nature of the change or answering the
“why”. People want to know why the change is being made and the risks of not
changing. People are also going to want to “know what’s in it for me”.

videos that you and your teachers may find useful.)
• Send teachers to visit a school with a strong 1:1 program.
How do I prepare my students for the change?
A: It is crucial to weave digital elements into your existing learning landscape.
As a start:
• Ensure that all students complete the Digital Citizenship Boot Camp learning
experiences. This is essential before student devices are distributed, to
support understanding of LAUSD’s Revised Responsible & Acceptable
Use Policy. The Boot Camp lessons are just the beginning of ongoing digital
citizenship education.
• Your Leadership Team needs to develop and communicate school-wide
behavioral expectations for students. Connecting with other schools is a great
way to get ideas around how digital citizenship is folded into your existing
school wide discipline foundation.
How do I prepare my parents for this change? Will
ITI staff offer support for that?
A: Schools can leverage the 1:1 program to significantly increase parent
involvement in their children’s education. Building awareness is key.
• Schedule well-publicized parent meetings before devices are distributed. ITI
will provide materials for these meetings.
• The district will ask parents to sign notification and acknowledgment
documents. These documents were created to share with parents and
students expectations for the care of and responsibility for the device.

All schools will be surveyed approximately 3 months after distribution to see
how things are going. From the results of that survey, a Change Management
plan will be created specifically for your school with recommendations on what
actions to take to help the staff move toward effective use of the devices for
instruction, daily, in the classroom.
Communication plays a crucial role in the change management strategy. Every
event that affects a user, which could include Principals, Teachers, Students
or Parents, should have a three-step communication process: Inform them of
the event, remind them of the event, follow up after the event. Events could be
large scale like the surveying readiness or the logistics surrounding distribution.
Events could also be on a smaller scale like a ITF or MCSA visiting a school.
Regardless of size, the goal is to quell fear and minimize anxiety through timely,
clear and concise communication.

Digital Citizenship
Just as we support students in developing as good citizens in the classroom,
education in digital citizenship is essential. LAUSD has partnered with Common
Sense Media, a not-for-profit organization that offers a comprehensive, researchbased digital citizenship curriculum. Beyond the initial “Boot Camp” that is required
before students receive devices, this partnership provides resources for Digital
Citizenship Week near the beginning of each year, and additional resources to make
safe and responsible online behavior an integral part of school life throughout the

care of its device.
Come up with “Dino, Don’t!” and “Dino, Do!” rules for using and
handling a tablet properly in the classroom. For example,
• “Dino, DON’T use your tablet without your teacher’s permission.”
• “Dino, DON’T press too hard!”
• “Dino, DON’T toss your tablet around. It’s not a toy!”
• “Dino, DO carry your tablet with both hands.”
• “Dino, DO charge your tablet when it runs out of battery.”
• “Dino, DO keep your tablet in its case and put it back in its home when you
are finished using it!
Show students the essential buttons, functions, and icons of their
tablet such as turning on/off, unlocking, adjusting volume, closing
and opening apps, charging, and using headphones. Then, pretend
that you have a visitor (a stuffed animal or iPadosaurus) who has
no idea what a tablet is or how it works. Have students answer the
visitor’s questions about the tablet and show the visitor how to use
the device, when prompted.

App Quest
Grade levels:Can be adapted for any grade, 2-12
Objectives: Students work in groups of 2 or 3 to explore an app and use
Keynote, iMovie, Explain Everything, or an app of their choice to
create a presentation about the app (including required information)
and how it can enhance learning.
Materials:Devices; sentence starters (poster, handout, or digital version via
projector); rubric (poster, handout, or digital version via projector);
iMovie “how to” at
Procedure:Open discussion about apps students have used outside of school,
and explain what they will do in this App Quest. (Note: You may
allow straight informational presentations or persuasive arguments,
• Use strategic grouping to allow students to fully participate
in the task
• Assign the app instead of letting students self-select
• Provide additional assistance in exploring the app
• Allow students to produce two videos if time permits
similar to advertising, or choice.) Direct instruction on the apps is
NOT required. After students have completed the project, discuss
how they solved problems along the way.

Guide: Evaluating New Apps
Different apps can fill very different learning goals. Some (including many
games) are drill or practice; others (including Explain Everything, Keynote, and
iMove) allow students to create projects; still others facilitate reading, writing,
data analysis, or collaboration. When choosing apps to share with students,
consider questions from the list below that apply to the learning goals.
• Is the app’s focus effective for the targeted skills/concepts?
• Does the app allow the teacher and/or student to change the settings and
content to meet students’ needs?
• Does the app provide specific feedback to users?
• Does the app support use of higher-order thinking skills including creating,
evaluating, and analyzing?
• Can students launch and use the app independently?
• Is the app engaging and motivating?
• Is student performance data available to the student and/or teacher?
• Does the app support collaboration among students?
• Can student products be easily exported?
• Where will use of this tool fit in the SAMR Model of technology integration?
Will it allow…
* Substitution? (App is a tool substitute; no functional change in task)
* Augmentation? (App is a tool substitute; some functional improvement.)
* Modification? (App allows significant change in task.)
* Redefinition? (App allows new tasks that wouldn’t be possible without it.)

Device & Safety Management
Best Practices on Campus
While many schools allow students to use their devices during non-instructional
time in common areas such as the playground, lunch benches, or the quad, other
schools prefer that students use their break time for social interaction that does
not involve technology. When deciding whether to allow students this privilege,
please consider the following:
• Will you designate certain areas, like the library, as suitable for device use?
• Establish a purpose for using the device; be specific with students about what
the devices can be used for, and post those expectations.
• How will you monitor what students are doing with their devices?
• Establish safety guidelines: Make sure students are seated while using the
device. (Some students have been injured while attending to the device more
closely than to their surroundings.)
• Food and drinks should be kept away from the devices.
• Consider using the devices on certain days, for example, Fun Fridays.
• Ensure that ALL staff members are aware of student expectations while
working in common areas, and are prepared to intervene as necessary.
Possible Infractions
Although we would like all of our students to use the devices in a responsible
manner, some will need more guidance than others. The California Education
Code covers many of the more serious infractions, including cyber-bullying,
damage to a device, and changing District settings. Other infractions fall into a
gray area in which we strongly advise that the Instructional Leadership Team
develop responses that are aligned with the existing school-wide discipline policy.
Below are a few examples of infractions that you may experience at your school
Device & Safety Management
• Downloading inappropriate apps
• Viewing inappropriate content (i.e., nudity, drugs, violence)
• Changing wallpaper/lock screen to display inappropriate images
• Removing protective case
• Writing/painting on protective case
• Loaning the device to others
• Losing chargers or ear buds
• Using the device for off-task activities during class
• Leaving a device unattended in a non-secure common area
• Using the device to buy music or apps with a parents’ credit cards, without
their permission
As with any discipline plan, your responses to technology issues must be fair,
swift, and consistent with what school staff members are willing and able to
implement. Below are examples of possible responses to student infractions.
Possible Interventions
• Warn the student verbally or in writing
• Take away the device for a period of time during class or over night. In either
of these cases, ensure that alternative tools are available so that there is no
interruption of the student’s learning
• Contact the student’s parent
• Issue detention
• Deny the student the privilege of participating in athletic or other
extracurricular activities, in accordance with student discipline procedures
• Have student complete a digital citizenship refresher course
Under no circumstance should the device be taken away as a punishment for
behavior that has nothing to do with the device.
After School Considerations
Possible Examples:
• When students are not using the device during after-school programs, the
school establishes a secure location for backpacks etc.
• All earbuds and chargers are labeled with numbers to identify owner

Parents & Families
The learning and creative potential of technology in the hands of every student
can be fully realized only with the full participation of parents/guardians and
families. Even before devices start going home, it’s essential that schools support
parents/guardians in exploring and understanding how their children can best
use technology.
Eventually, the devices will extend the District’s learning environment to homes

their school communities for that initial meeting. Please contact Sophia

questions and concerns about how their kids can be cyber-safe, whether their
kids will just be “playing games,” how much time is too much time on the device,
what parent responsibilities are for the devices, and more. This handbook section
provides resources that schools and their parent representatives can use in
reaching out to empower and work with parents and guardians.
• Even parents who have found it difficult to make it to school meetings will
show up to learn about the shift to 1:1 educational technology integration
• Often, parents who never had Internet access at home invest in it when
students start bringing the devices home
• Communication between parents and teachers is a tap or a click away.
Schools can leverage the 1:1 program to significantly increase parent
involvement in their children’s education. Building awareness is key.
• LAUSD has partnered with Common Sense Media, a not-for-profit
organization, which offers a wealth of truly worthwhile resources for working
with families.
• Schedule a parent meeting before devices are distributed. We suggest
multiple opportunities (for example, a weekday morning, a weekday evening,
and a Saturday morning), to accommodate parents’ work schedules.

Sample Parent Letter
School letterhead
Dear (School Name) Parents / Guardians,
I hope you share my excitement that (School Name) is part of LAUSD’s Instructional Technology
Initiative, which is bringing a digital device to each K-12 student in participating schools! I believe -and classroom-based research supports this belief -- that students’ use of technology will transform
learning. The device applications, along with our faculty’s instructional expertise, will help students
soar in achieving Common Core State Standards. At this time, the devices will not be going home
with students, but will be used daily in the classroom. Our children’s problem solving, creativity, and
innovation will thrive with these tools!
I know you have many questions about the devices and how students will be using them. Please join
us for a (School Name) community meeting DAY, DATE, at TIME a.m. or TIME p.m. It is crucial that
parents and guardians be full partners in this cultural shift in learning.
Along with information about the educational value of the devices and students’ safe use of them, we
will talk about district, parent/guardian, and student responsibilities with the devices. As partners, it
is vital that we all understand how we can best support students to make the most of these learning

With Power Comes Responsibility
Help your kids be safe and respectful and have fun!
Visit age-appropriate web sites. Familiarize yourself with the features, content — even the advertising—
of your child’s favorite sites. Make sure it’s good for your kids.
Use bookmarks and safe search. Teach your child to bookmark his or her favorite sites. This way,
your child is less likely to go somewhere online you don’t want. Use safe search options on browsers like
Google or Bing to make sure your child can search safely.
Keep private information private. Tell kids not to share their passwords, Social Security number, full
Avoid strangers. Explain that people aren’t always who they say they are in cyberspace. If someone
they don’t know talks to them, kids shouldn’t respond — but should let you know.
Teach kids to think before they post. Everything online leaves a digital footprint. Explain that everyone
should think carefully about comments, pictures, videos, or text messages before they post them so that
they will be comfortable with their Internet presence down the road.
online. Teach them how to report mean behavior on their favorite sites.
7HDFKNLGVWRVKRZUHVSHFWIRURWKHUSHRSOH·VZRUNJust as they would want to receive credit for
things they make — like artwork, pieces of writing, or photos — they should give credit to other people’s
work they use.
Keep the computer in a central place. That way you can see what’s going on.
Find a good balance. Establish expectations and limits that work for your family about the amount of
time your children spend online and what they do.
Be involved, and have fun with them! Show an interest in the sites kids visit and the games they
play. That’ll make your job a lot easier when they start exploring technology more independently. And
remember to view your own habits – you’re their role model!

What happens on the Internet may live forever on the Internet. What teens do online spreads fast and can last
a long time. Silly or not-so-smart comments, photos, and videos can be found long after your teen forgets about
them. So remind your teens that a bad reputation could be just a click away and to think carefully before they post.
Nothing is as private as teens think. Text messages, photos, comments, videos – they can all be copied, pasted,
and shared with tons of people in a heartbeat. Make sure kids use privacy settings and that they understand that
Kindness counts. Teens sometimes say and do things online that they wouldn’t in person. Encourage them to communicate kindly, build positive online relationships, and stand up for those who are bullied or harassed. Remind them
that posting an embarrassing photo or forwarding a friend’s private text without asking can hurt or damage others.

A student’s parent or guardian is liable for any Los Angeles Unified
School District (District) property that a student loses or damages.
After due process, a student’s grades, diploma, and transcripts can be
withheld. Loss or damage to instructional materials may also result in
the denial of participation in school activities that are deemed
privileges (e.g., culmination/graduation ceremonies, dances, senior
prom, student body office, inter-scholastic athletics, or other local
school activities).
This Bulletin is updated to include devices issued as part of the
Common Core Technology Project (CCTP). It updates contact
information and provides schools with additional forms to use to
notify parents and guardians of instructional materials issued to
GUIDELINES: California Education Code section 48904 states that the parent or
guardian of a minor is liable to a school district for all property loaned
to and failed to be returned, or willfully damaged by a minor. The
liability shall not exceed $10,000, increased annually for inflation. In
addition, it authorizes school districts, after affording the student due
process rights, to withhold the grades, diploma, and transcripts of a
student until the student or parent/guardian pays for the lost or
damaged school property (e.g., textbooks, library books, computers,
devices, shop materials, physical education clothes, and sports
equipment). It also provides for a program of voluntary work for the
minor in lieu of the payment of monetary damages.

Common Core Shifts (2 pages)
Common Core “Shifts”
There are twelve shifts that the Common Core requires of us if we are to be truly aligned with it in terms of
curricular materials and classroom instruction. There are six shifts in Mathematics and six shifts in ELA/ Literacy.
Shifts in ELA/ Literacy
Appendix B: Instruction & Culture
Shift 1
& Literary
Students read a true balance of informational and literary texts. Elementary school
classrooms are, therefore, places where students access the world – science,
social studies, the arts and literature – through text. At least 50% of what students
read is informational.
Shift 2
in the
Content area teachers outside of the ELA classroom emphasize literacy
experiences in their planning and instruction. Students learn through domainspecific texts in science and social studies classrooms – rather than referring to
the text, they are expected to learn from what they read.
Shift 3
Staircase of
In order to prepare students for the complexity of college and career ready texts,
each grade level requires a “step” of growth on the “staircase”. Students read the
central, grade appropriate text around which instruction is centered. Teachers are
patient, create more time and space in the curriculum for this close and careful
reading, and provide appropriate and necessary scaffolding and supports so that it
is possible for students reading below grade level.
Shift 4
Students have rich and rigorous conversations which are dependent on a common
text. Teachers insist that classroom experiences stay deeply connected to the text
on the page and that students develop habits for making evidentiary arguments
both in conversation, as well as in writing to assess comprehension of a text.
Shift 5
Writing from
Writing needs to emphasize use of evidence to inform or make an argument rather
than the personal narrative and other forms of decontextualized prompts. While
the narrative still has an important role, students develop skills through written
arguments that respond to the ideas, events, facts, and arguments presented in
the texts they read.
Shift 6
Students constantly build the vocabulary they need to access grade level complex
texts. By focusing strategically on comprehension of pivotal and commonly found
words (such as “discourse,” “generation,” “theory,” and “principled”) and less on
esoteric literary terms (such as “onomatopoeia” or “homonym”), teachers
constantly build students’ ability to access more complex texts across the content

ISTE Profiles for Technology Literate Students (5 pages)
for Technology (ICT) Literate Students
A major component of the NETS Project is the development of a general set of
profiles describing technology (ICT) literate students at key developmental points in
their precollege education. These profiles are based on ISTE’s core belief that all students
must have regular opportunities to use technology to develop skills that encourage personal
productivity, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration in the classroom and in daily life.
Coupled with the standards, the profiles provide a set of examples for preparing students to be
lifelong learners and contributing members of a global society.
The profiles highlight a few important types of learning activities in which students might
engage as the new NETS•S are implemented. These examples are provided in an effort to bring
the standards to life and demonstrate the variety of activities possible. Space limitations and the
realities of the constantly evolving learning and technology landscapes make it impossible to provide a
comprehensive collection of examples in this document, and consequently, students and teachers should
not feel constrained by this resource. Similarly, because this represents only a sampling of illuminating
possibilities, the profiles cannot be considered a comprehensive curriculum, or even a minimally
adequate one, for achieving mastery of the rich revised National Educational Technology Standards for
Students. Educators are encouraged to stay connected to the ISTE NETS Refresh Project and contribute
their best examples to expand this resource.
The profiles are divided into the following four grade ranges. Because grade-level designations vary in
different countries, age ranges are also provided.
Grades PK–2 (ages 4–8)
Grades 3–5 (ages 8–11)
Grades 6–8 (ages 11–14)
Grades 9–12 (ages 14–18)
It’s important to remember that the profiles are indicators of achievement at certain stages in primary,
elementary, and secondary education, and that success in meeting the indicators is predicated on
students having regular access to a variety of technology tools. Skills are introduced and reinforced
over multiple grade levels before mastery is achieved. If access is an issue, profile indicators will need
to be adapted to fit local needs.
The standards and profiles are based on input and feedback provided by instructional technology
experts and educators from around the world, including classroom teachers, administrators,
teacher educators, and curriculum specialists. Students were also given opportunities to provide
input and feedback. In addition, these refreshed documents reflect information collected from
professional literature.
