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.
