As part of Jeffco's Tech for Ed program, students in grades 1 and 5 will receive a new 300e Lenovo Chromebook to use for four years. At Leawood, all students in grades 1, 2, 3, and 5 have Tech for Ed devices provided by the district, and students in grades K and 4 have devices purchased by our school. For the 2023/24 school year, all students in grades 1-5 will have Chromebooks provided by the district Tech for Ed program, and only kindergarten will still be using devices purchased by Leawood. The Tech for Ed devices come with a warranty for repairs, but students using devices purchased by Leawood will still have to cover the costs of repairs such as cracked screens and missing keys.
In class, we will spend a great deal of time discussing appropriate care and use of this device, including Digital Citizenship lessons to teach students how to be safe and smart online.
Students are expected to return the device FULLY CHARGED each day to be ready for learning. Please help your student find a place at home to safely charge the Chromebook each evening. If a charger is lost or damaged, please reach out to Margarita Russell, our financial secretary. She will order the proper charger and place the fee on your student's Infinite Campus account. Replacement chargers are around $27.
Any loss or damage should be reported immediately. Our IT department will complete all necessary repairs, and your student will be assigned a different device to use.
