Science Hill to begin distributing Chromebooks to freshmen on August 9
Science Hill will begin issuing Chromebooks to freshmen on Friday, August 9. In order to receive a device, each student must submit a completed Chromebook User Agreement that is signed by both the parent/guardian and the student.
Per Johnson City Board of Education Policy, a $20 annual user fee per student is required to receive a Chromebook. This fee covers the receipt of the Chromebook, a charger, a protective carrying case, and one incident of accidental damage. The fee is due at the time a student receives their Chromebook. Parents are strongly encouraged to pay fees electronically at the Science Hill High School website under “Pay School Fees” and follow the prompts to Chromebook User Fee (or click here). If paying electronically please remember to print a copy of the receipt to bring with you on Friday.
For students in grades 10-12 who already have a device, the signed Chromebook User Agreement can be submitted and the $20 fee can be paid to first block teachers beginning Monday, August 12 through Friday, August 16. Again, parents may pay electronically at any time by going to the Science Hill High School website under “Pay School Fees” and following the prompts. Paying fees electronically is easier and safer than traditional methods and is strongly encouraged.
New students at Science Hill will be able to get their device on Monday, August 12 in the library using the same procedures as our freshmen.
