This is a reminder to access the Milton Public Schools Family Technology Support Help Center website to troubleshoot potential issues with, and/or educate yourself about, a device/ platform/application for which you are not familiar. The site provides information on PlusPortal, Google, Clever, Guardian Monitoring, Who to Contact, and more.

All ninth-grade and tenth-grade students will receive a school-issued Chromebook that they will take to and from school on a daily basis. They will not be allowed to bring their own device to school. Eleventh and twelfth grade students will bring their own device (BYOD), or be issued a school device to bring to school each day. It is expected that teachers will consider and make use of these students' devices in their curriculum where appropriate. It is expected that students are prepared for class with a device that is ready to use each day.

Optional Chromebook insurance will be offered to all ninth and tenth grade students along with any eleventh and twelfth grade student who does not bring their own device. It is highly encouraged to purchase insurance for their school-issued Chromebook. If insurance is declined, students are held responsible for damage beyond reasonable wear and tear as outlined in the Loan Agreement. Here is a link to purchase Chromebook Insurance for the 2022-2023 school year.

Ninth and tenth grade students will receive their MPS Chromebook during advisory on the first day of school.

All students and families of students who are using a school-issued Chromebook are required to sign the Chromebook Loan Agreement. Here is a link to the MHS digital Chromebook Loan Agreements
