Lending Laptop Library
Travis High School now has a lending laptop library. These laptops are available for students to check out and take home. Our goal is to help all THS students have access to the technology they need to be successful. As teachers increase the amount of learning done online, students often need consistent access to a computer outside of school. Students may now request a laptop through the THS library in order to complete school work off campus. Laptops are available at no cost for two weeks at a time. Parents must first complete the agreement forms in Skyward and then students may fill out the request form found on the THS library website. For more information, please visit the library page of the THS website. https://www.fortbendisd.com/Page/121681
