In 2013-2014, the School District of Waukesha launched Waukesha One, a personalized learning program that included a K-12 1:1 iPad rollout for all students to support that learning. We are presently in the second year of a three year rollout process. This initiative, serving over 12,000 students and nearly 1,000 staff makes the School District of Waukesha the single largest iPad implementation in the state of Wisconsin. Waukesha One utilizes a self-managed technology model in which parents and students are empowered to determine what apps and resources are needed to support learning. This exciting new model challenges the traditional IT support/management model in order to focus specifically on the unique needs of teachers and students.

Led by Principal Jody Landish and a highly effective administrative team, Waukesha North High School is the first high school in the School District of Waukesha to be selected as a Waukesha One school. Now in its second year as a 1:1 iPad school, North’s dedicated staff members seek to provide a personalized learning environment for all students using a wide variety of approaches. Utilizing offerings such as Align by Design, Proficiency Based Learning, and Blended Learning courses, Academic Options support, and a strong focus on skill development in the Grading for Learning assessment system, North’s staff and students work collaboratively to focus on enhancing student learning to prepare students for a lifetime of success.
