I’m a twelfth grader. Is it okay for me to bring a device to school for educational use each day in the 2019-2020 school year?

We are prepared to support students across the high school grades in using laptops/Chromebooks in fall 2019, but devices are not required for grade twelve. Administrators, teachers, and technicians will prioritize support for ninth, tenth, and eleventh grade students and their devices. We do not expect students to bring personal computing devices to the middle schools in 2019-2020.  We appreciate your patience as we explore the best ways to integrate computing devices into our middle school program.
