In an effort to increase technology usage at OCMS, we successfully introduced a program last school year which allowed students to bring their own internet-ready Chromebook devices to school. Chromebooks were used in various classes for assignments and projects.
Due to its success, we will be continuing this voluntary program for the 2019-2020 school year. In an effort to provide you with direction when choosing a Chromebook, we have partnered with Best Buy to give you a few options that we feel are suitable and acceptable Chromebook versions for purchase and use at OCMS. However, it is important to note that parents are not required to purchase through Best Buy.
In order to protect your investment, since the device will be moving throughout the school seven periods a day, the school is requiring some type of carrying case or protective case for your device. Backpacks are still prohibited during the school day, but a briefcase-style carrying case or messenger bag-style case will be allowed.
If you have any questions about the bring-your-own-device Chromebook program, please e-mail technology coordinator, April Flood at [email protected]
