Westlake's Second Annual Shoe Drive is Here!!
April 10th - April 21st

Westlake Environmental Club is partnering up with Soles 4 Souls for our second annual shoe drive! Our Shoe Drive will take place from April10th through April 21st. Please bring in any new, used, and gently worn shoes during this time period to one of your core teachers' rooms. This will not only help the environment by preventing these shoes from going to landfills, but also helping people in poverty around the world get a new pair fo shoes which can bring opportunities and comfort to these people's lives.

Employee and Student Chromebook Purchasing Program

Effective April 15, 2016, Adams 12 has arranged an Employee and Student Chromebook Purchasing Program. This program allows Adams 12 students (or families) and staff to purchase for personal use the same Samsung 
Chromebooks that the District utilizes for teaching, learning, and assessment, with the same discount that is received by the District.   These transactions will be directly routed through GovConnection, our current Chromebook reseller, with no associated financial or service burden, or benefit to the District.  

Disclaimers: 
  • Adams 12 currently recommends this model of Chromebook for students in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) programs at certain buildings, and has worked with GovConnection to make discounted pricing available as a courtesy to our families, and to give families who want their students to have access to technology at home, a chance to buy the same technology that the district has in the classrooms at a discounted price. 
  • Families are free to choose another model Chromebook (especially in non-BYOD situations) and/or purchase from any retailer they would like. 
  • While a few buildings at this time have BYOD programs, there is no district-wide mandate or program in effect in this regard, and the availability of this program does not automatically mean that personally-owned devices will be used in classrooms. 
  • All transactions related to this program will occur directly between the vendor and parents, or the vendor and employees, with the district having no financial or support liability in regard to such devices. 
  • The program may be discontinued at any time without notice. 
  • Student-owned devices in classrooms need to be secured by students as the district has no liability in this regard.
