Digital Devices

Calhoun County is committed to having our students compete in the current informational and  technological environment, with 21st century skills.  Therefore, as previously shared, each of 
our students in grades 3-12 will receive a digital device this school year.  Each student will receive a Lenova 11e Chrome Book, a carrying case, and AC power adapter.

There is a $50.00 Annual User/Insurance Fee for each device issued.  The fee is due by December 18, 2015, prior to the week of rollout, beginning on January 4, 2016.  This fee is to cover the cost of repair if necessary and other items that may need replacing.
