Princeton ISD is not a one-to-one district for technology, meaning individual devices are not provided for every student. However, the school board recently approved the purchase of additional Chromebooks to assist during this time of virtual learning.
These devices have been ordered, but the district was recently notified the shipment will be delayed for 10 weeks because of high demand for Chromebooks during the pandemic.
This is where PISD needs the help of families who will begin virtual learning when school starts Aug. 13. We are asking families who have any sort of device, including smart phones and tablets available in their homes to not request devices from the district. In addition, the virtual learning option will not be synchronous so siblings will be able to share devices now.
Parents will need to submit a form to request a district-issued device. There is a link to a Google form, which can be submitted electronically. In addition, there is form attached, which will also be located on the website. Hard copy device request forms need to be submitted to the campus of the oldest child in the family. Please do not return multiple forms.
Initially, devices will be distributed on a need basis, and they will be issued to students as they are available. When the new Chromebooks arrive, distribution will continue until they are all checked out to students during virtual learning.
