2016-2017 Chromebook Program Selection Open

The Bedford District is asking parents of students currently in grades 6 thru 8 to select an option for your student to participate in the District’s Chromebook 1-to-1 Program. We believe this program is a tremendous opportunity for our students and teachers to improve teaching and learning.
Our Chromebook 1-to-1 Website has detailed information for parents regarding the program and we encourage parents to review the 1-to-1 Program and Parent Resources sections.
Parents are asked to purchase a Chromebook device for their student choosing one of the following options:
  • Purchase a Chromebook on your own,
  • Purchase a Chromebook directly from the district (with optional accidental breakage/theft insurance) with a one-time payment,
  • Lease to Own a Chromebook directly from the district with an annual payment for 3 years (accidental breakage/theft insurance included).
For families that do not opt into the Chromebook 1-to-1 Program, a loaner will be provided to the student during the school day.  The loaner must be checked in and out daily and will not be allowed to leave the school.

Please click on this link to select the option for your student to participate in this exciting program. We are asking that parents submit their selection for their child by June 3rd so that we can secure the best pricing and plan for purchasing and deployment.
