iPad and Chromebooks first shipment has arrived on campus

Early this afternoon our college received two pallets with 204 Chromebook devices at our loading dock.

These devices will be distributed starting tomorrow to students that participated and met the criteria in the online survey. This is the first shipment we are expecting another shipment and when that one is scheduled we will screen another wave of students and schedule them accordingly.

We have reviewed all requests as of today, upwards of 490 that came from the survey and identified 214 students that have reported not having a device for Distance Learning.

This is our first target for distribution. Emails will go out today asking students to schedule a pick up using our reservation system. This will allow us to eliminate crowds by distributing only to 25 students per hour.

We are also reviewing individual emails that IT as received regarding students requesting devices. We are checking against the survey list to make sure all requests are included and directing students accordingly.
