Freshman and sophomore students will be issued an HP Chromebook x360 11 Education Edition, starting in October 2017. Detailed information about the program will be made available during parent and student orientations.
Parents/Guardians have the option of paying an annual $25 Chromebook fee. If parents/guardians choose to pay this fee for the 2017-2018 school year, repairable damage to the Chromebook will be 100% covered. Additionally, if the Chromebook needs to be replaced due to damage or loss, parents/guardians of high school students will be charged only $100 for replacement and parents/guardians of middle school students will be charged only $75 for replacement
Parents interested in paying the optional Chromebook fee of $25 need to do so prior to October 16th. Payments should be made electronically at K12PaymentCenter.
