Limitless Learning COVID Response Back to School Plan 2020-2021 » Access to Technology

Access to Technology

To assure that all students have access to technology during our virtual learning, FSHISD will provide devices for individual student use.
  • Grades 6 -12: All students in Grades 6-12 will be provided with a Chromebook if they elect to participate in our 1:1 Chromebook program. Cole's 1:1 Chromebook program was in place prior to the pandemic and we will continue this year. 6th - 12th grade students who are assigned a Chromebook at this time will keep their Chromebook for the remainder of the academic year regardless of instructional delivery. The Chromebooks are to be turned in at the end of the academic year or upon withdrawal from FSHISD.
  • Grades 1-5: Students in grades 1-5 may elect to check out a Chromebook if needed. The Chromebooks will be returned to the school when "normal" operations resume. Students in grades 1-5 also benefit from a 1:1 Chromebook distribution. However, during the normal school year, the elementary Chromebooks stay at school.
  • Prek and K: Students in PreK and K may elect to check out an iPad if needed. The iPads will be returned to the school when "normal" operations resume. Students in PreK and Kindergarten have access to iPads during the normal school year but iPads stay at school.
  • Chromebooks and iPads will be available for pickup prior to the start of the academic school year.
  • Students and parents will need to fill out a Student/Parent Chromebook or iPad Agreement Form to obtain a device. Our online agreement forms can be found below.
