As you learned at the 5th Grade Parent Night, Wayland Middle School is finishing the first of a 3-year Chromebook 1:1 program. The initiative has been very successful in terms of providing access to quality educational resources and improving students' digital skills. We look forward to having your students participate for the 2015-2016 school year.
The following information outlines the steps necessary to complete before a Chromebook is handed out to your student(s).
Each family, parents and student(s), must attend a 30-minute training in August or September at the time of deployment.
Please reserve a ticket (one for each student)
and allow at least 30 minutes before the training to pickup the device and finish the registration process. For example, if training begins at
, you should arrive no later than
. If training begins at
, you should arrive by
. The total time is about one hour.
Each student will need to bring a Chromebook case with them to the training. The school will not be providing a case this year as part of the fee. The WMS PTO will be providing information on how to purchase a case via their new school supply program. You will be able to purchase just the case if you do not want to buy the other school supply items. If you do not have a case at the time of training we will hold on to the device until you and the student can acquire one.
In addition to picking up the device and attending training, parents will need to sign the
WMS Chromebook Care & Use Agreement
. Please read the entire document, sign and bring the last page with you to the training.
4) Insurance Fee:

5) Select an Option:
Although a fast majority of students bring the Chromebook home each day, families do have the option of keeping the device at school. Please
access this form to select the option
that best suits the student's academic needs.
We request that you do not wait until the night of the training to do the steps above...it only makes for a longer line and prolongs the evening for all. Thank you, in advance, for your consideration.
