All students levels 2 - 8 are issued a Chromebook during their time at UCS.
Chromebook insurance is optional, but highly recommended and can be purchased for $40 per year. Please ask the office or your student’s advisor for an insurance form or download it here.
Students are welcome to use their own cases if approved by a school administrator. Students may also use their own headphones, mice, and other accessories if desired.
UCS uses Edgenuity as a research-based, online learning system. Edgenuity offers standards-aligned video-based curriculum for K - level 8 blended learning environments. This online program allows teachers to differentiate the curriculum for their students, who monitor their own progress while completing lessons, assessments, and interactive activities. Each child’s teacher will provide them with a login and password for Edgenuity at the beginning of the school year. You can access the Edgenuity site here. (*Make sure to write URBANCS in the school field) Research shows that students who engage in Edgenuity between 45-60 minutes per week significantly increase in knowledge base. For additional information, please contact your child’s teacher.
UCS uses a typing program with students in levels 1 - 5. Students are also able to access the program from home by clicking here. Students practice their typing skills in preparation for middle school and high school content. Middle School students at UCS have the option to enroll in a Typing Club academy each trimester.
