Madawaska's Technology Program is explained in some detail here.  Not only what we have for technology, but what we're doing with it.

Laptop Policy 
Students in grades 7-12 will be using MLTI laptops during the 2015-16 school year.  Students wishing to take the laptop home must participate in the laptop protection plan.  The laptop protection plan limits the uncovered liability to $150 per incident provided there was no intentional, malicious, or grossly negligent cause for the damage.

Students in 5th and 6th grade at Madawaska Elementary School will each be assigned a laptop again this year.  Due to high rates of incidental damage, students at this grade level will not be taking their laptops home this year.  Students will be provided space in their classroom to charge their laptop.



One goal of the Madawaska School Department is to provide the tools needed for our students and staff to be among the best.  The school department has over 500 computers performing a wide variety of functions.

The school department has deployed laptop computers to each of it's 5th to 12th grade students at the Middle/High School.  Each student will have wireless internet access from anywhere in the building. By putting these tools in the hands of their students, the school will be helping develop skills for the 21st century job market.

Lunch System Changes
Heartland Mosaic and MySchoolBucks
We changed our food service program to the new cloud based Heartland Mosaic system.  One nice feature about this system is that parents will now be able to find account balances and make payments online if they choose.  More information to come.
