Devices

Freshman students for the 2019-20 school year will be issued a school owned device for use during the school year and returned in May of 2020.  All freshmen will be issued a Chromebook for the 2019-20 school year but they must fill out the Device Agreement Form first.  The student must log into google with their willistonschools.org e-mail account to complete the form.  After the form has been completed they will be able to come to WHS to pick up a device. All students issued a device are expected to use their issued device while at Williston High School for schoolwork throughout the day and away from school property.

A limited amount of additional devices are also available to students in grades 10-12 and distributed on a first come, first served basis. Grades 10-12 students who would like to use a school issue device must complete the Device Agreement Form.  Completion of the agreement form does not ensure a device. If a student failed to return their school issued device from the previous school year or have not payed for damages to their previous device they will not be issued a device for the 2019-20 school year until all fees have been submitted.

If your student is in grades 10-12 and you prefer to purchase a device or were not able to get a school issued device, the WPSD #1 Information Services Department  recommends the Lenovo 300e.  If you choose not to purchase this device it is strongly recommended that you select a Chromebook that has a touchscreen.  Also, if you choose to select another Chromebook please check the following link: https://support.google.com/chrome/a/answer/6220366?hl=en and find the device you are considering purchasing.  While a Chromebook will continue to operate after the auto update expiration there may be some instances where security, browser features and OS updates cannot be guaranteed.
