1:1 Chromebooks And Blended Learning At ConVal
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. Starting in October 2017, 7th and 8th grade students will be issued an HP G5 11 Education Edition Chromebook, freshman and sophomore students an HP Chromebook x360 Education Edition. Detailed information about the program will be made available during parent and student orientations.
Parents/Guardians have the option of paying an annual $25 Chromebook fee. If parents/guardians choose to pay this fee for the 2017-2018 school year, repairable damage to the Chromebook will be 100% covered. 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. If unable to make an electronic payment and need to make a payment using an alternate method, please contact Mindy Ryan, ConVal School District’s Business Administrator, by phone 603-924-3336 ext. 2029 or by email email@example.com.
