  • Hosford Students and 1:1 Chromebooks

    All Hosford Students will be issued chromebooks October 19th!

    With voter approval for the 2020 School Bond last fall, we will continue the vital work of improving the health and safety of our aging school buildings with new roofs and mechanical systems, seismic retrofits, plus accessibility and security upgrades. Additionally, this Bond provides our students and staff with new textbooks, curriculum materials and new technology to support classroom and distance learning, while updating classroom and district technology devices. 

    Because of this bond, all students will be provided and assigned a Chromebook to use for both in-school and at-home work. Students will be given a chromebook even if they have a personal device they already use.

    Also, if your student has a PPS chromebook they checked out previously, please have them bring it to school on October 19th where they will turn it in, and get their new chromebook.

    For more infomration on the 1:1 policy please go to >> https://www.pps.net/Page/17529
