Device Updates

chromebook device update techThe Information Technology Division has been busy working for our students!
  • Our IT Technicians have prepared over 48,657 Chromebook devices located in schools for distribution to students.
  • Starting the week of Monday, August 3, 2020, students in grades 7 through 12 with a district-issued device will participate in a Device Wellness Check. Students will report the health of their device — it is either ready for learning or in need of repair. The goal is to connect with each student and device and this process will touch an additional 30,000. Communication is forthcoming.
  • The district has made a substantial investment in devices for our students.
More information is forthcoming within the next week regarding device distribution plans.
