Q1. I’ve heard that only some students are getting Chromebooks that they can take home… is that correct?
A1. Yes, this is correct. Only students at schools implementing project based learning through New Tech Networks will be receiving a Chromebook that they can take home.
Specifically, here are the schools and grade levels/teams involved:
- Crestview students grades 3 thru 6
- Clive students grades 3 thru 6
- Indian Hills 7th graders on Dream Team
- Stilwell 7th graders on the S team.
Q2. When will these students have access to the Chromebooks?
A2. Each school will decide how/when the devices are handed over to students – but most likely it will be some time during the first week of school.
Q3. Is there any information on what the parents/students are responsible for related to having the Chromebook at home?
A3. Yes…. please review the NTN Technology Agreement (Microsoft Word document) for details.
Q4. Does the district have plans to expand Chromebook access to all students.
A4. At this time, there are no plans to expand access beyond students involved in project based learning through New Tech Networks.
