We've been getting a lot of questions about the Chromebooks. Hope this helps.
The Lenovo Thinkpad X131e will be the Chromebook issued by SVHS. The Lenovo ThinkPad Chromebook is a rugged laptop built to withstand enthusiastic typing, bustling group work, and other everyday school adventures. Designed with specialized classroom features like reinforced hinges and a rubber casing, students and teachers can work hard and play hard. Students using a school-issued device will also receive a carrying case.
Students do not have to use a school-issued device. Students are free to bring any device they may already own or wish to purchase, Chromebook or otherwise. The device needs to be able to connect to wifi. Parents and students must sign the appropriate Responsible Use Policy (RUP) and/or Personal Electronic Communication Devices forms before they are allowed to use any devices at the school. Appropriate forms and additional information will be made available to families via the internet and in class on the first day of school.
Lastly, we are still using textbooks. Students will be issued textbooks beginning August 22nd.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and follow everything Spring Valley here at Viking Update.
