Ipad and Chromebook Distribution to Aid in Virtual Learning for Next Year

I am reaching out this afternoon to inform you of next steps related to the deployment of student devices for the start of the school year.

The HCPS technology department is working on a plan for the distribution of student Chromebooks and iPads needed for virtual learning. In order to keep our students and families safe, we ask that families DO NOT go to the technology hubs to get devices at this time.


It is important to understand that all Pre-K and Kindergarten students will receive an iPad to begin the school year, while students in grades 1-5 will receive Chromebooks. This is a 1:1 initiative meaning that each student in Pre-K – 5th grade will receive a personal device in which to participate in virtual learning experiences.


I ask for your patience as the county outlines the plan for a drive up service to get the needed devices for each household. We realize there are many questions at this time, but a full plan will be outlined for families soon. We will begin deployment in August, and we will let everyone know the distribution dates once they are set.
