Baldwin High School students to receive Chromebooks

| Tuesday, Aug. 15, 2017, 11:24 a.m.

Baldwin-Whitehall School District's 1:1 initiative will begin this school year, as each student in grades nine through 12 will have his her own Chromebook.

The high school Chromebook distribution days are as follows: Aug. 16 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for senior students; Aug. 17 from 1 to 5 p.m. for sophomores; Aug. 18 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for juniors; and Aug. 24 from 5 to 9 p.m. for freshmen.

The district has scheduled a make-up day for all students on Aug. 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Devices can be picked up at Baldwin High School in the south cafeteria. When picking up devices, all documentation must be signed by students and parents. Documentation includes two forms and payment for protection plan if opting for the coverage. Accepting or declining the protection plan will be required prior to receiving the device.

Families with students in multiple grades can pick up the devices for their household on the same day.

Chromebooks will be used to help students personalize their learning and gain appropriate media skills.

More information and forms can be found on the district website, bwschools.net.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
