Fairfax County Public Schools has just announced the laptop model it has selected for the one-to-one program that will be implemented in all high schools across the county starting in the fall of 2019. FCPS has chosen the “Dell Latitude 3300 XCTO” as the model that will be distributed to students.

Several factors went into choosing this particular model for student use.

“I know that cost was a factor in the overall decision,” Jefferson’s Technology Systems Manager, Leo Resquin said. “You’re looking at outfitting every high school with laptops. That’s a lot of students; a lot of schools; that’s a lot of laptops.”

Of course, the cost wasn’t the only factor.

“They superseded costs to ensure that schools got the right product,” Resquin said. “The focus was the instructional needs at the high school level”

The decision was also influenced by information gathered through the one-to-one pilot programs done in some FCPS schools such as the Chantilly Pyramid. Student input was also taken into account.

Ultimately, regardless of the laptop model, the one-to-one program will really benefit students and the learning experience as a whole.

“The whole concept is to provide equitable access to resources, tools, and technology for all students,” Resquin said.
