Each Student has Access to Personal Laptop Computer

One-to-One Chromebooks

Twin Springs High School distributes Chromebooks each year to every student in 8th through 12th grade.  These laptops are used in the classroom and for Standards of Learning testing. Teachers assign and collect assignments through the use of the Chromebooks, as students actively participate in the consumption and production of digital media. Students are allowed to take the Chromebooks home each evening, and can access online learning resources from wherever they are. The goal of the 1:1 Chromebook initiative is to prepare students for college and the workplace. 

Before receipt of the Chromebook, students complete and return the Chromebook Use and Expectation and User Agreement

Some guidelines for Chromebook use include:
* keep food and drink away from the Chromebook

* keep your battery charged for school 
* don't stack books or heavy materials on top of Chromebooks
* never share passwords
* never carry the Chromebook while the screen is open
* bring Chromebooks to class daily
* never access or store inappropriate media on the device
