1:1 Chromebook Program for Anytime, Anyplace Learning

Simsbury High School students in grades 9-12 are assigned Chromebooks for use at home, as well as at school. Chromebooks have been used extensively in Simsbury Public Schools for several years since we became a Google Workspace for Education district. Chromebooks have proven to be a cost effective solution for providing students with access to vetted educational online resources and tools. Making these resources available 24/7 allows for anytime, anywhere learning and encourages students to become responsible consumers and creators of information. See the 1:1 Chromebook Procedures and Information Packet tab below for a complete description of this program.

Information on the Distribution of Chromebooks:

  • Students receive Chromebooks as freshmen or as new transfers to the school at the Forms and Photo Fair held in August. 
  • Parents and students are expected to read the 1:1 informational packet prior to signing off on the insurance and Chromebook agreement forms. The Chromebook agreement sign-off will be done through PowerSchool Enrollment (formerly InfoSnap), which will open in late July.
  • The Insurance form is sent out with the Forms and Photo Fair information in July.

Annual Chromebook Procedures:

  • All students and parents are required to read the Chromebook Information Packet and sign-off on it through PowerSchool Enrollment (formerly InfoSnap).
  • All students are required to view the Informational Videos below.

In order to address any questions that parents/guardians may have after reviewing the Procedures and Information Packet, an informal Q & A forum will be held at a date TBA in August.
