Student Technology Devices

To help remove technology barriers and advance equitable student learning outcomes, HCPSS has moved to a 1:1 student-to-device ratio. All students have or will be provided with a Chromebook. These devices are required for all county and state testing and assessments. HCPSS Technology and Devices information.

If you currently do not have a HCPSS device, we will be distributing devices on Thursday, August 26, at the conclusion of the Student Orientation OR during Back to School Night. Click on this form to schedule a time to pick up your device.  Chromebooks may be picked up in the Media Center.  Arrive promptly during your designated pick-up window.

If you are unable to attend the Student Orientation and/or Back to School night, students should report to the Media Center to be issued a device on Monday, August 30.

 

Technology Support

Please find below information regarding technology support for fall virtual instruction that includes both self-help resources and how to request technology support.
