Will this device work for all four years of high school?

The lifespan of a portable device can vary greatly, but most perform well for three to five years. Our technical specifications for the device will not change during a student’s high school career, and it is our goal for all students to be able to use the device for all four years. Even if device specifications do change as technology develops, devices that meet our 2019-2020 minimum specifications will continue to be compatiblefor students graduating in 2021, 2022, and 2023.
