Personalized Learning Matters - One-to-One Technology

Personalized Learning

The Upper Arlington City School District is a premier school district in Ohio and in the nation. Our legacy is built upon a history of focusing on what matters most for our students and taking a leadership position in education. 

Under the visionary leadership of the Upper Arlington Board of Education, the district launched a one-to-one technology program in December 2016 as part of our innovative strategic plan. One of the five goals in this community-developed strategic plan is the personalization of learning for all students. The district believes that it is essential to personalize learning to provide students with the tools and the opportunities that will both enhance educational experiences and ensure their readiness for the next phase of their lives.

Through the district's one-to-one technology program, students in kindergarten through grade 12 receive district-owned devices (tablets or laptops based on grade level) to use as tools to personalize their learning experience and support their success.
