Below are the options available to students entering the High School in the 2020-21 school year.

Please Note: Because students have found they can get a better deal on their own with special promotions, we are not offering the purchase through the school option this year. Please use the recommended specifications to guide your purchase.

BYOL (Family Provided) – Mac, Windows, Chromebook, and Linux

New laptop Suggestions: A laptop that will last the full four years of High School. These are general suggestions based on that benchmark.
Some newer laptops might only have USB C ports on a computer. There will be a need in some Science labs to connect probes to a standard USB port. In this case, a USB-C to USB adapter is required. This link will take you to a Google search to share examples.

Older laptop suggestions: If you have a laptop at home already, these are general guidelines for bringing an older laptop that will work in our schools.
  • Capable of running the latest version of the native Operating System (OS)
  • Generally five years old or less
  • Available disk space to install software (depends on the software needed for courses)
  • The battery can last at least 6 hrs
  • It is suggested for a clean installation of the Operating System and if possible, install a new battery.

In-School Use (School Owned Device)

Chromebooks picked up and returned each school day. It is expected that there is a device at home that students will use to complete homework assignments. If a student needs to use the school-owned device for homework on a given night, they can get a signed permission form from a teacher to take the Chromebook home overnight for that night.

Financial Assistance (School Owned Device)

Students qualifying for Financial Assistance will be able to take a school-owned laptop home for the duration of the school year. If they do not have internet access at home, the student may check out a mobile hotspot from the Technology Department monthly.
