Technology Insights

Our roadmap for technology is now a part of our global Strategic Plan. Below are just a few examples below of some of the world class technology available to our students:

  • 21st Century Classrooms featuring Promethean Interactive Panels and audio enhancement in every core classroom District wide
  • 1-to-1 Chromebook program in all buildings
  • iPads in each Kindergarten Classroom
  • Document cameras and Zoom available to each Teacher
  • Tablets and assistive technology in select programs throughout the District

COPPA Compliance

Oak Park School District utilizes several computer software applications and web-based services, operated not by this District, but by third parties.  In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personally indentifying information, generally consisting of the student’s name and e-mail address, must be provided to the web site operator.  Under a federal law entitled Children’s Online Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA), these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information. For more information on COPPA, please visit

Each website operator is bound by COPPA to maintain the confidentiality of the information collected.  They are also required to post a privacy policy describing their practices.  

COPPA permits a school district to consent to the collection of this information on behalf of all of its students, thereby eliminating the need for individual parental consent given directly to each individual website operator.

Software and Technology Sites

The Oak Park School District uses a multitude of software packages and websites for both instruction and enrichment.  Some of our most notable products are below, however this list is ever growing to support remote learning

  • Google Workspace for Education

Home Device Cost Responsibility

The Oak Park School District takes great pride in providing students with the technology necessary to compete in the 21st Century. To that end, the school will make its best effort to repair any District computer that fails due to normal use. However, if a computer needs to be repaired because of vandalism or carelessness on the part of a student, the repair cost will become the responsibility of that student and their respective Parent/Guardian. Students are assigned computers; they are not to use another computer unless specifically directed by the teacher. Parents will be notified if a situation arises which may require charges for repairs or replacements.

Students with loaner devices that are part of Oak Park Schools Chromebook 2-to-1 Program may have a device assigned for home usage.  Repair cost responsibility is as follows:

  • The cost for the first repair/part replacement is free to the student/parent.
  • The cost of the second repair may be chargeable to the student/parent at the discretion of Oak Park Schools.
  • The cost of the third, and any subsequent, repairs will be borne by the student/parent assigned the device.
