KNOXVILLE, TN (August 4, 2021) – All K-12 students in Knox County Schools will be provided a Chromebook for the upcoming school year, as part of the 1:1 initiative which was adopted by the district in 2020.
Chromebook distribution will be coordinated by individual schools, but at many schools the process will not begin until after students have returned to class on Monday, August 9. Chromebooks will be deployed to virtual students prior to the beginning of the semester.
Families should make sure to watch for email communications from their principal or a school administrator for details.
Before receiving a Chromebook, families must fill out a Technology Device Agreement, which can be found at this link.
While there is no financial assistance being offered for Chromebook insurance at this time, the cost of insurance has been reduced to $20. In addition, families have the option of making payments as low as $4 per month to cover the cost of insurance.
