This year, every 8th grade student will be assigned their own computer. Through the EVERYONE:1 initiative, students were allowed to take that computer home. The current computer is an 11" convertible Chromebook that functions as a laptop and a tablet. Accessories include a charger and a case.
For your student to proceed with the Everyone:1 program, a parent/guardian must go to the online form within the parent cloud. This form must be completed in order for the student to be assigned a Chromebook to be taken home. Simply go to https://my.austinisd.org and after logging in, search for the "device" tile.
