July 6, 2021 - Updates Regarding Student Devices for 2021-22 School Year

  • The following information is about student devices and applies to all students. 

    All students will be assigned a student Chromebook at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year. If your student has no district Chromebook checked out, they will receive one at the beginning of the school year. For students with a Chromebook checked out, they may be required to return the Chromebook to receive a new one, or they may be required to continue using it, depending on the model. Your school will let your student know if they are eligible to receive a replacement or will continue using the Chromebook they have.  

    Any problems with Chromebooks that are currently checked out must be reported to your school or the WCPSS Technology Help Desk as soon as possible. 

    Student devices that are not functioning because of a defect in the device will be repaired or replaced as needed. Devices that are damaged or lost will be replaced once during the device loan period. Students who experience a second incident of damage or loss will be limited to in-school use of a device only. All families will be expected to sign an agreement at the beginning of the school year acknowledging this and other student expectations. Find the agreement and additional information. Schools will provide a copy to students at the beginning of the school year.

    Finally, all hotspots that are checked out from last year must be returned to your student’s school as soon as possible. Families will have an opportunity to request a hotspot if one is needed at the beginning of the 2021-22 school year through the school’s social worker or SAP Coordinator.
