What is the timeline for distributing Chromebooks this fall?
The district will be making every effort to hand out Chromebooks to 5th, 6th and 9th Grade students during the first 2 weeks of school. Delivery delays or unexpected issues could delay this effort, but our Technology Staff will be working hard to meet this goal.
What items will students be receiving?
Students will be receiving a Chromebook and a charger. A backpack or carrying case is NOT provided, however many of our schools offer options for sale through Boosters or Clubs. All items issued will be assigned to each student and will need to be returned at the end of the school year or upon transfer from the school. Failure to return any of these items would result in the student being charged.
What will need to be done in order to receive a Chromebook?
Prior to receiving a Chromebook, each student must first sign a Usage Agreement that informs them of their responsibility related to maintaining their Chromebook and how to report repair issues. In addition, we will be asking that all families review the Device Protection Plan option available to them and either Accept or Decline insurance. Device Protection Plan enrollment is required for take home use of the device.
