1:1 Device Program

Howell Public Schools 1:1 Chromebook Program

Pending approval by the Board of Education, Howell Public Schools will begin embarking on a 1:1 Chromebook program beginning with the start of the 2018/2019 school year. Each student in grades 6-12 will receive a Chromebook to be used both at school and home for the entire school year. At the completion of the school year, students will turn in their Chromebook where they will be cleaned, updated, and checked for necessary repairs. Students will receive the same Chromebook from year to year.

Before receiving a Chromebook, the following must have occurred:

  • Parent/Student reviewed the Chromebook handbook
  • Parents completed the Chromebook handbook acknowledgment form
  • Payment of the $20 annual Chromebook usage fee either in person at orientation or electronically

Chromebook Insurance
Howell Schools requires that parents purchase annual insurance to cover accidental damage and theft of student devices (both issued and any loaner device, should they be needed). This policy does not cover the loss of the Chromebook and/or accessories, cosmetic damage, or damages caused by intentional misuse or malicious destruction. Howell Public Schools will assess the Chromebook damage and repair or replace the device if the damage is determined to be accidental and within the protection guidelines. Parents/students may be charged for the full replacement cost of a device that has been lost or damaged due to intentional misuse or abuse.

If you qualify for free/reduced lunch and your household requires assistance with this fee, please select the option in the 1:1 Agreement Form to pay for insurance in cash, and speak to a district employee on device distribution day about how to apply for financial aid.
