Princeton eNews for week ending May 13, 2022
Princeton City School District students, staff, and families - Thank you for sharing your voice through our YouthTruth surveys!
Your voices are paramount to our schools’ improvement efforts. In April, we launched our second annual YouthTruth survey in partnership with YouthTruth, a national nonprofit that helps districts improve their school climate and culture. We heard from our students, staff, and families about how we are doing and how we can improve.
YouthTruth is a very powerful tool for us to look at ourselves honestly and critically and push ourselves to get better. Hearing what our students, staff, and families think is one of the most important things we can do as educators.
YouthTruth will be completing the analysis of our survey results, and we should receive the survey reports in the next several weeks. While we will explore the findings more over the next several months and strategically use the feedback to inform next year’s planning, I sincerely thank you for your participation. We will let you know what we are currently doing and planning to do with your feedback.
Thank you for your voice - it makes the #vikingdiff!

Chromebooks Over Summer
We want to inform everyone about the plans for the Chromebooks over the summer. Earlier this year the decision was made and communicated to the schools that Chromebooks for 2-12 grade were to be assigned on a one-to-one basis and that the students would take the Chromebooks home for homework.
Based on the one-to-one status, all Chromebooks for students 2-11 will be sent home with the students over the summer.
This means that ALL 5th-grade students will keep their Chromebook and that will still be their device when they arrive at the Middle School, and all 8th-grade student will keep their Chromebooks also. Twelfth-grade students have returned their Chromebooks to the High School, in order to walk at Commencement.
For our K-1 students, parents/guardians have the option of keeping the Chromebook over the summer. If you have a child who is currently in Kindergarten or First Grade and would like to keep the Chromebook, you need to complete the attached form. This will acknowledge that you are responsible for the device.
We understand that there is some concern about the devices being lost or damaged over the summer. It is something that we are aware of and are anticipating. We have processes in place for repairs and enough devices to replace any anticipated losses. The tech office is open through the summer. The office number for support and repairs is 513-864-1162.
