Smartphone Giveback Program
Norwin School District is accepting donations of old smart phones to help students participate in the district's Bring Your Own Device at the high and middle schools.
The donated smartphones will be used by students who do not have or are not able to bring their own devices to school.
District officials plan to clear all data from the smart phones before letting students use them. Students will be using the smartphones on the district's wireless network.
All smartphones should be no more than two years old, and come with a wall charger.
Donated smart phones can be written off as a tax deduction.
