Chromebooks & Internet Access
If you are experiencing technological difficulties with your district-owned Chromebook, please call our Technology Help Desk (Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).
CHROMEBOOK CHECK OUT
Chromebooks are checked out to Monroe School District middle and high school students in grades 6-12 and are expected to bring them to school daily. Students at our elementary schools and Sky Valley Education Center have access to district Chromebooks while they are at school.
Many of the internet options require proof of low-income status, such as acceptance into the Free and Reduced Price Meal program. To see if your family qualifies for Free or Reduced Price Meals or to fill out an application, please visit our website: https://www.monroe.wednet.edu/departments/food-service/free-and-reduced-priced-meals
