Salem-Keizer Public Schools has announced that students will be able to keep the Chromebooks checked out to support distance learning. In April, SKPS distributed nearly 30,000 Chromebooks to students.

“By holding onto these devices, students will have continued access to digital learning resources and opportunities to practice academic skills learned throughout the school year,” said Bob Silva, Director of Technology and Information Systems.

For student safety, the devices are disabled overnight.

If students no longer need their Chromebook or they are not returning to a Salem-Keizer school in the fall, the Chromebook can be dropped off at the district Technology Office at 1340 State St., Salem, OR 97301, Monday-Thursday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. If families are not able to drop off a Chromebook at that location, please call 503-399-5555 for assistance.

Families who also checked out wifi-hotspots will be able to rent them throughout the summer at no cost.
