Chromebook Distribution

  • Chromebooks are available for all CPS students from grades 1 to 12, and IPads are available for pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students.  The District encourages families to use these Chromebooks as students will have direct access to software used in their classroom. Although the equipment remains the property of Chelsea Public Schools, students are allowed to keep them at home until further notice. You can collect devices for all students in the family (from grades 1 to 12) who attend Chelsea Public Schools in one visit. The Chromebook Care Agreement can be found here.
