Students entering Grades 5th, 7th and 9th will receive a Chromebook this Fall. It can be used by the student throughout the school year and during the summer. It must be returned at the end of the 4 year cycle, upon request by building administration, or when the student leaves the district. The device can be taken home when the student and the parents/guardians sign this agreement. If the student and parents/guardians do not agree with the terms of this agreement, the student will be limited to use of the device at school only.
- The use of Chromebooks at home for educational purposes is encouraged.
- Chromebook care at home is as important as in school, please refer to taking care of chromebooks.
- School district Internet filtering will not be provided for the Chromebooks when used outside of school district buildings.
