• DCPS Laptops for Students

The Goal

  • Our mission is to ensure students have access to learning materials both at school and at home. 

    • Elementary School - Elementary students have access to laptops throughout the day while in school. Additionally, through a special grant called the Emergency Communications Fund (ECF) grant, we are able to provide take-home laptops to students regardless of grade level while supplies last.   

    • Middle/High School - Secondary students are assigned laptops to use at school and at home each school year. Parents and students can view info about their assigned laptop in OneView under the "My Devices" tab.

    See additional details below.
