Chromebook Deployment

August 11, 2015

Greeting Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton (JWP) Families and Students,

First and foremost, we hope that this communication finds you and your families doing well.  It has been a busy time at the JWP School District as we work on plans for the 2015-2016 scholar.  At the end of the 2014-2015 school year, it was announced that the JWP School District would be deploying Chromebooks to students in grades 4-12.  This letter will provide you with important information regarding this process.

The District will have a series of meetings in which we will cover important information regarding a variety of topics.  These meeting dates and locations are as follows:

August 18, 2015 Chromebook Deployment at 7:00 pm

10th - Varsity Gymnasium
11th - Auditorium
12th - Commons

August 19, 2015

7th - 6:00 pm Orientation in the Auditorium followed by Chromebook Deployment at 7:00 pm
8th - 7:00 pm Chromebook Deployment in the Commons
9th - 7:00 pm Chromebook Deployment in the Varsity Gymnasium followed by Orientation at 8:00 pm

August 20, 2015 Chromebook Deployment at 7:00 pm

4th - Varsity Gymnasium
5th - Auditorium
6th - Commons

You may have students that attend grade levels in different meeting strands.  Your family will need to attend only one meeting, however, all students receiving a Chromebook must be in attendance at one of the meetings.

When any piece of technology is purchased and/or deployed, many individuals begin to wonder how accidents or theft will be covered.  In brief summary, here is our District's plan:

We will offer a $20 opt-in insurance plan for families to purchase per Chromebook issued.  This will cover the first two accidental replacements/repairs.  Therefore, if you plan to participate in this optional insurance plan, we ask that you provide payment on the evening in which your family attends.  More in-depth details will be shared on the informational night.

We thank you for your unending support and look forward to seeing all of you in the near future.  Should you be unable to attend or have further questions, please contact Bill Adams, Superintendent.
