Message from Rocklin Unified School District

Dear Rocklin Unified Families,

The Rocklin Unified School District understands how important Internet connectivity and access to a device is for students so they can access online educational resources. If you checked out a Chromebook or Hotspot for your student last year or will not have a device at home for your student to use for homework this year, please take a moment to apply for this federal program so we can determine if you qualify.

The window for Rocklin Unified to apply for a Chromebook or mobile hotspot for your student closes on Friday, August 13, 2021. In order for us to include your student in the application, we need to have the request completed as soon as possible and will be closing the form on Monday, August 9th at 3:00 pm.

If you already submitted the form, you do not need to do it again. For information on the timeline and next steps or to look at some Frequently Asked Questions, please go to our website for more information.
