Loogootee Schools will be 1:1 with Chromebooks for the 17-18 school year.

chromebooksStudents in grades K-6 will each be issued a Chromebook in a cart model.  What that means is that students will have access to their own Chromebook daily but will turn it back in at the end of the day to charge overnight.  If homework is issued that requires a Chromebook, students will be allowed to check it out to take home on a very limited basis.  More information regarding this will be provided by the building principal and/or classroom teacher.  Chromebooks in the cart model are protected with a hard case.

Students in grades 7-12 will be issued a Chromebook and may take it home daily to complete school work.  Students are expected to leave their chargers at home and charge their Chromebooks nightly.  Chromebooks in the take home model are protected with a “leave in” bag.  Students are expected to keep their Chromebooks in that bag at all times.
