Switzerland County students in grades three through 12 will have the opportunity to use a Dell 11 Chromebook with a carrying case.
Beginning in 2015-16, students in fifth and ninth grades were given an opportunity to own their assigned Chromebook after four years of use. This continues each year for fifth and ninth grade students. This means each graduating senior will own their Chromebook.
Families will pay a $25 per year technology fee for each student in grades three through 12. Cash, check or credit cards are accepted. There will be regular maintenance/application updates on the device. Students must have paid each year’s tech fee to be eligible to take ownership upon graduating.
Parents/Guardians must complete the 2016-17 Skyward online registration for each student and pay tech fee before receiving a Chromebook. Skyward registration can be completed between now and August, 9 via https://goo.gl/o6wnBS.
Rollout will be held in the Switzerland County High School cafeteria Tuesday, Aug. 2 and Thursday, Aug. 4 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Wednesday, Aug. 3 and Friday, Aug. 5 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
