Families that need devices and Internet access can check them out on Friday, March 20 at two sites in the Scottsdale Unified School District. They want to ensure they have enough devices for families, so this first rollout is for families that do not have any devices or access to the Internet. There will be a limit of 1 computer per family at this time.
SUSD’s e-learning begins Monday, March 23. Devices can be picked up on Friday, March 20 between 9:30 am and 1 pm at:
- Navajo Elementary: 7501 E. Oak St., Scottsdale
- Chaparral High School: 6935 E. Gold Dust Ave., Scottsdale
- Additional pick-up days will be planned.
Once again, this initial checkout day is for families that do not have any devices in the household. Students or parent/guardians will be requested to present the student’s Scottsdale Unified school-issued ID for 5th through 12th-grade students and a Government-issued ID, as well as their child’s Student ID Number, before receiving technology items. Students will not be required to be online for great lengths of time and multiple siblings can share a device.
“Ensuring that the business of education continues is the top priority for the Scottsdale Unified School District. We are making devices and a limited number of hotspots available to Scottsdale Unified School Districts students and their families today so that they are equipped and ready to begin their e-learning on Monday, March 23. Principals and teachers have been undergoing training and readying their virtual classrooms so that we are ready to move the lessons from the classroom to the cloud,” says Amy Bolton, Chief Public Information and Marketing Office, Scottsdale Unified School District.
