Chromebook Distribution for 2021-2022

This document contains important information regarding our plans to distribute chromebooks to students for the 2021-2022 school year.  Updates to this plan will be posted on our school website at https://sms.dcssga.org/

Do I have to rent a school Chromebook or can I use a personal laptop?

You do not have to rent a school device, however we do strongly suggest checking out a school issued device.  Everything your student needs for school is preloaded and set up on the school device.  Personal devices are not allowed in the building. 

Is there a “User Agreement”?

The Douglas County School System provides a user agreement for digital devices.  Please click the following link, DCSS Tech Initiative, to view the DCSS User Agreement.  Once you have read the User Agreement, please add your digital signature to the form in this link. This must be completed in order for your student to receive a school Chromebook.

When will students be able to get a school Chromebook?

Student’s will be given a school Chromebook by the end of the first full week of school once the User Agreement has been completed and the Student Technology fee paid.

Is there a deadline for getting a school device?

We ask that you complete the User Agreement and pay the Student Technology Fee by August 6th.
