CHROMEBOOK SURVEY FOR LAPTOPS ETCHED 14-15 / 15-16
Published by Joel Mayo on August 19, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................
Student laptops with the year 14-15 or 15-16 etched on the lid will be replaced for all students who have one. The year may be found in the lower-left corner of the lid. These models will not fully function with CANVAS, but they WILL still be able to login to Email, Powerschool, and access GoogleMeet until we call you to pick up a replacement.
Our technology objectives over the first 10 school days are:
  • First, to make sure students without any laptop at all are given one.
  • Second, to begin replacing as many 14-15 or 15-16 laptops we can from our current inventory.
If your student has a 14-15 or 15-16 laptop, please fill out this survey by Friday the 21st: https://forms.gle/HgXsT79vKwXBx8Fw5 Please, let your child(ren) know if you fill it out for them, so they don’t fill it out again in one of their classes.
Thank you again for your patience.
