The purpose of the 1:1 program is to maximize student learning by providing students access to online resources and applications. Faculty members can also use information from online assessments and programs to effectively adjust and improve their instruction. The 1:1 devices are the property of Daniel Boone Area School District (DBASD) and are configured to help students maximize their learning opportunities.
