We have exciting news! As we continue to prepare our students to be College and Career Ready in the 21st Century, we will now assign your student a Chromebook to take home with them daily. With this said, it is imperative that your student bring their Chromebook back to school with them every day so that they can utilize them for class assignments.

● Students will be assigned a Chromebook; similar to that of being checked out a library book.
● Students will be instructed to use their Chromebook responsibly and to adhere to online safety procedures/rules
that promote digital citizenship.
● Students will also be assigned a charger for their Chromebook, which they will keep at home. We expect students to fully charge their Chromebook every night so that it is ready for them to utilize during the day at school.
● At home, students will be able to access the internet via your Wi-Fi.
● If you do not have Wi-Fi at home, you may access Wi-Fi at the public library or any other businesses that provide free Wi-Fi.
● As an option, you may also access the internet on the Chromebook via Wi-Fi Hotspot or your mobile device. (Word of caution: use of your mobile device Hotspot will be through your data plan).
● For our students’ online safety, the Chromebook will still have the same online filter that is provided by our  district regardless of Wi-Fi location.
● Only @valverde.edu accounts will be allowed log on to their assigned Chromebook.
● Students will still be able to work on their Google Docs offline, even if they do not have access to WiFi.
● Please monitor your child’s use of the Chromebook at home and continue to remind him/her about following online safety rules/procedures and using their device responsibly.

This Chromebook distribution initiative is being conducted so that we can foster a school culture that promotes digital literacy and that we continue preparing our students to be Future Ready. We appreciate your support and look forward to a successful launching of our Chromebook distribution initiative!
