Grade 5 Students

For 2021-2022 school year, Grade 5 students will receive a NEW Lenovo 300e touchscreen Chromebook as their District 1:1 learning device. Students will keep this device for the next four years to customize and enhance their learning experience at school and at home. A charging cord will be given to your student along with their device.  Students will be responsible for the replacement of the charging cord if it is lost or damaged.  New chargers are available to purchase for $27 in the front office.  

6th grade Students

NEW to Jeffco students who will be in the 6th grade will also receive a Lenovo Chromebook that was issued during the 2020-2021 school year. A charging cord will be given to your student along with their device.  Students will be responsible for the replacement of the charging cord if it is lost or damaged.  New chargers are available to purchase for $27 in the front office.  

Returning 6th-grade students will continue to use the device they were issued last year.

The "Personalized Technology Use Fee" of $50 that you will see on your fee sheet, combined with funding from the 2018 5A mill levy override, helps cover costs associated with the TechForEd program, including the device and its protective case and various digital learning tools.
