The Grandview C-4 School District has adopted a 1:1 initiative to provide laptops to its high school students. Students currently are provided an 11-inch Mac Book air with a bag and clear case to cover the device. The laptops are used at both school and home. Students provide their own internet access at home.

The Internet has drastically changed the way that we interact with the world. People have access to in-depth knowledge, tools to express their creativity, and people from all over the world. Yet along with offering a fascinating, new way to connect with the world, the Internet also offers new risks such as:
- Exposure to inappropriate material
- Online predators
- Revealing too much personal information
Learning to recognize the warning signs of these risks will allow trusted adults to intervene and lessen potential negative impacts.
