The Lakota Technology Team is dedicated to collaborative leadership in supporting Lakota's personalized, learner-centered, future ready mission through a focus on innovation, forward thinking and sustainabilty.


Lakota's next chapter of personalized student learning will begin in the 2018-19 school year with a new pilot program that will pair each of our 7
th and 8th grade students with a dedicated, district-owned Chromebook (1:1) to support high quality teacher instruction.  

This “WEareEMPOWERED" program is being designed to empower each junior high student to own their learning through expanded access to innovative instructional content, activities to increase collaboration and communication, along with new learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom and school day. This new initiative supports the development of key student skills and responsibilities necessary to navigate the digital transformation of today and the highly-skilled, technology driven global world of tomorrow.

Once this pilot program is established in our Jr. High schools, the WEareEMPOWERED initiative will move to our High Schools.

Productivity and Collaboration Suites

Lakota provides our students and staff both Microsoft Office 365 and Google G Suite. Proficiency in both productivity and collaboration suites will benefit out students in their future. Both web-based services are integrated into our Learning Management System, Canvas, and can be accessed through OneLogin.

Lakota students in grades 2-12 can click here for a free installable version of Microsoft Office for personal devices.

Bring Your Own Device

Lakota Board Policy
 allows for students to use personal communication devices "as part of a classroom activity when indicated for instruction by a teacher or administrator."

While we cannot recommend specific makes and models of devices since student and family needs differ, here are the minimum device requirements for Microsoft Office 365, Google G Suite, and Canvas, Lakota's Learning Management System.


*While Microsoft Office 365, G Suite and Canvas are supported on iPhones, iPods and Android phones that meet the specs above, we encourage the larger screen sizes to meet a wider variety of educational software.
