CHS 1:1 Chromebooks
Summer Communication about Chromebooks
Current 9th-11th graders will keep their school owned TechforEd Chromebooks over the summer. If students are moving out of the Jeffco School District, they need to return their TechforEd Chromebook with the charger to Quail. Here are the directions. Students who are moving to another Jeffco school will keep their device and bring it with them to their new school.
Please follow these instructions for broken devices or moving over the summer.
Vision: Create an equitable and sustainable model for technology-enabled classrooms that prepare students to thrive in a connected, digital world in alignment with the Jeffco Generations strategic plan.

See video for a demonstration.
