Parkland Digital Learning Resources - created to support parents, students, and staff during the COVID-19 shutdown

CHROMEBOOK Guidance for Summer 2020 (for tech support, click here)

Grades 5-11 students will retain their assigned Chromebooks over the summer. 

Current 8th Grade students will be contacted during the summer with the opportunity to exchange their existing Chromebook for a new Chromebook.  

This will be their new learning device for Grades 9-12.

All K-4 students who borrowed a device in spring 2020 will retain devices and be contacted over the summer to either exchange or upgrade their device with their 2020-2021 classroom learning device.  

Every Parkland student will be assigned their own learning device for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Students should keep Chromebooks charged and ready for next school year.


Will they have certain restrictions? Yes, The same content filtering policies will remain intact.

Can we set some time limits on how long they can be on? The District will not be enforcing time limits on the devices.

Will these Chromebooks be monitored by the school? Our content filter does generate logs of student activity but it is not actively monitored.

Will there be restrictions on Google? The same restriction will apply as during the school year. Access to Google apps necessary for educational purposes will be available.

Can my student use the Chromebook during summer? Students are encouraged to use their Chromebooks over the summer to continue with learning activities and some students may have summer enrichment or summer school credit recovery that requires the Chromebook for e-learning.
