Kindergarten - Fifth Grade 1-1 Device Initiative
cb    ipad  
In September, all students in grades Kindergarten through Fifth grade will have their own device provided by the district. Students in Kindergarten and First grade will receive an iPad while students in Second through Fifth grade will receive a Chromebook. Students who had a Chromebook during the 14-15 school year will not get the same Chromebook for the 15-16 school year.  While not a mandatory supply, there are cases available for the Chromebook through different vendors like Amazon. If you are interested in purchasing a cover for the Chromebook, please note that the device is a HP Chromebook 14 -SMB (14 inch screen). 
Here are a sample of links where Chromebook cases can be purchased:
Once again, it is not a mandatory supply, but an option if you are interested. For the full list of grade level supplies, please click here
