We know there are a lot of questions about student devices. Demand for student devices has been extremely high. We have checked out 50-60% more devices than what was requested by parents during Online Registration. Global supply chain delays also mean that 6,000 laptops are on back order. We know some of our schools have run out of devices, but the district is working with suppliers to send us about 1,300 devicesnext week,and more will be coming in the following weeks. Your school will contact you when devices arrive,but the soonest they will start arriving is next week. I’ve had the privilege of visiting schools this week and watching how teachers, counselors, and administrators are preparing for the start of online classes next week. While there is still some work to be done in the next few days, I am amazed at what has been accomplished. Our schools are amazing! Please, if you have any questions about what online learning will look like for your student, contact your student’s teacher.
