Student Chromebook Summer Plans

  • The Technology Services department is currently planning for the end of the 21-22 school year, and at the same time, looking ahead to the 22-23 school year. 

    This summer, the majority of students will be storing Chromebooks at home, however, in May, two grades will be turning them in. Chromebooks need to be collected periodically to provide students with updated hardware and operating systems to ensure smooth performance and few issues when used for instructional purposes. 

    Please thoroughly review the summer Chromebook plans below and reach out to your building principal or Technology Services if you have any questions. 

    Thank you,

    Ted Cardwell, Director of Technology

    Students in grades 8 and 12 must turn in chromebooks. Students in grades 2 through 7 and 9 through 11 are storing them.
