Technology Support/Chromebook Information

Students will be bring their Chromebook with them from the Junior High, so take good care of your device over summer break! All Chromebooks purchased through the school came with a 3 year warranty to last grades 7-9, and then at the end of next year, you can purchase a new device to last you your last 3 years of high school! There will not be Chromebook repairs over the summer, however, we will begin repairs again in the fall. If you have been bringing your own device, and you would like to order a new one, please email Dr. Dunn.

If you need any tech support with your device, WIFI needs, Milford student accounts, etc. Please contact Dr. Dunn at dunn_r@milfordschools.org.


NGC students are permitted to possess personal electronic devices, including cellular, earbuds/headphones, smart-watch, tablets, or other personal connected devices. Furthermore, students bringing electronic devices assume risk of damage, theft, or other loss of items.

While students are in class in the NGC, devices are to remain in the student’s book bag and/or locker, and powered off. Use of such devices is prohibited during class time except under the request and supervision of instructional staff.

Devices may be accessed before school, between classes, during lunch, and after school.

Important Tools to Support your Student

To best support and monitor your child's Ninth Grade year, parents/guardians should have two important accounts, PowerSchool Parent Portal is the tool to monitor grades for your child and Schoology is the tool to monitor day to day announcements, assignments, calendar of due dates, etc. Many students have already reached a level of independence to complete school work by the time they reach high school, whereas others still need your support to be successful. The goal is to balance your support, your child's work ethic, and the NGC staff support to help your child have a successful freshman year! You will receive parent access codes to these two important tools as we get closer to school beginning!

Final Forms

Milford School District has partnered with FinalForms, to enable parents/guardians to complete their child’s forms online. Click here to update your child's information if anything has changed from last year! This is the tool you use to keep all family and student information up to date throughout the school year.

Pay Schools

Use Pay Schools to pay for lunches, school fees, sport participation fees, and more! You can also check for and pay outstanding balances. As a reminder, in order to participate in graduation as a senior, students must have a $0.00 fee balance by the end of their senior year.
