FRAMINGHAM – Framingham students starting Friday, June 12, will begin to return their issued Chromebooks, that were used for remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic for the 2019-2020 school year.
Framingham Public Schools Technology Director Ann Mariano said 3,401 Chromebooks were issued to students since March.
Framingham Public Schools has more than 9,000 students.
Members of the Class of 2020 have already returned their Chromebooks, but students in the other grades will start this Friday.
Families may return their Chromebooks on June 12 or June 19.
“As this school year comes to a close, we are planning for the next school year. Many new Chromebooks will be distributed as students return in the fall, however, we also need to reuse many of the Chromebooks that were distributed this year. Returning your current Chromebook will help us repair any damage and prepare them for the new school year,” wrote the public school district to families.
“We have families who are leaving the district and have asked for an earlier date,” said Mariano to SOURCE.
The last day of school for the 2019-2020 year is June 18.
“The 19th is after school ends, so families who no longer need them for summer work can drop them off,” said Mariano.
If families or students plan to using the devices over the summer for summer reading, Imagine Learning, iReady, Elefante Letrado, Learning A to Z, IXL, credit recovery, or summer programs, they may keep the device, said the public school district.
They “will be asked to return the device in late August or as school begins so that we can inventory every device.”
Drop off locations for the Chromebooks are Framingham High, Wilson Elementary, and McCarthy Elementary.
Families should drop off at whatever school is closest to their house.
- Elementary School Families should drop off between 7:30 and 10 a.m.
- Middle School Families between 10 and 12:30 p.m.
- High School Families between 1 and 3 p.m.
