Students at LPS high schools will once again be using Chromebooks to support their learning this year. Returning students will retrieve their returned Chromebook during the first week of the 2019-20 school year, incoming Freshmen, will receive a Chromebook during High School Readiness Days.
Chromebook Information – FAQ, Troubleshooting, Expectations, Device Information
Parental Acknowledgement of Instructional Technologies in LPS Secondary Classrooms (PA) – At the start of a student’s high school career, a signed PA must be submitted before a Chromebook can be checked out. The PA will be mailed home to incoming 9th graders in July. Additional copies will be available during Readiness Days or online here.
To protect students and families from full financial responsibility for device repairs and/or replacement, LPS offers an optional Chromebook Assurance Program. The premium for participation in the program is $20.00 annually ($10.00 for students who qualify for Free/Reduced Lunch Program).
More details about the program, including a schedule of repairs and fines, can be found here: lps.org/go/CAP
While participation is optional, the premium will be reflected as a fee in Synergy ParentVUE/StudentVUE for ALL students enrolled at LPS High Schools beginning on July 25, 2018. If you choose not to participate in the device coverage program, the fee can be ignored and will be removed after the enrollment window closes.
If you choose to participate in the program, there are two options to make the premium payment:
Option 1: Online via Credit Card (Recommended to reduce wait times during Readiness Days.)
