SKPS offers Chromebooks to students in need of devices

All Salem-Keizer Public Schools (SKPS) students in need of devices for supplemental learning will be able to rent Chromebooks at no cost from the district for the duration of the emergency school closure.

Devices will be made available at each of the district’s six traditional high schools – McKay, McNary, North Salem, South Salem, Sprague and West Salem – on Thursday, April 2 from noon until 6:30 p.m. and Friday, April 3 from 8 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Devices are available to any student in kindergarten through 12th grade. Students must either present their student ID or provide their ID number.

The distribution of devices comes as the second phase of supplemental learning. On March 21, online supplemental materials were released. Beginning the week of March 30, hard copies of supplemental materials will be available for pick-up between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. weekdays at the district’s 35 meal locations.

At this time, wifi hot spots are not available. An order has been placed for a limited amount, and further information will be forthcoming when it has been fulfilled.
