Why Chromebooks?
  • Gives students the ability to work on their documents from anywhere
  • Allows a paperless transfer of work
  • Ample storage space for student work

Who has access to the Chromebook?

We do not authorize other users on a student’s Chromebook device.  Log in will be limited to the student’s school email account only.

When will I receive my Chromebook and what fees are associated with the device?

Chromebooks will be issued two weeks before school start.  See JEDI Calendar for school start/end dates.  JEDI will provide a day for students to drop off Chromebooks at the end of the school year and a pick up day before school start at the Innovation Center in Whitewater.  If you are unable to attend the designated pickup day, you will be charged a $25 technology fee to cover shipping.

The computer is on loan from JEDI to the parent/student and must be returned to JEDI in keeping with the Chromebook rotation schedule below. New Chromebooks will be issued in the following grades: PK, 3, 6, and 9th grade. The parent/student must return the previously used Chromebook at the end of the cycle (grades 2, 5, & 8) in order to receive a new issue.
