In an effort to further enhance academic programs currently offered in the ConVal School District, the School Board approved, in February of 2016, the purchase of Chromebook laptop computers for the middle and high schools.
The first phase of establishing 1:1 (1 laptop computer for every 1 student) learning environments will be introduced this fall.

Additionally, if the Chromebook needs to be replaced due to damage or loss, parents/guardians of high school students will be charged only $100 for replacement and parents/guardians of middle school students will be charged only $75 for replacement
Parents interested in paying the optional Chromebook fee of $25 need to do so prior to October 16th. Payments should be made electronically at K12PaymentCenter.
