We will phase in our instructional model and all Red Clay students will start the 2020-21 school year in a remote learning environment for the first six weeks.

  •  CHROMEBOOK & SUPPLIES 

    Chromebook Appointment Form

    Chromebook Important Info:

    • Parents and students must complete paperwork and pay the insurance fee before getting their chromebooks. The paperwork includes a statement of understanding acceptable use of the technology and the annual insurance fee. (Los padres y los estudiantes deben completar el papeleo y pagar la tarifa del seguro antes de obtener sus Chromebooks. La documentación incluye una declaración de comprensión del uso aceptable de la tecnología y la tarifa anual del seguro.)

    • For your safety and convenience, we are offering online options for both the paperwork and for paying the fee: 

    • Please note that if you have questions or concerns about the fee or would like a payment plan, there is a place to indicate it on the online form.

    • For families that may need help with home internet, Red Clay has ways to help.  

  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    What if my student still has their chromebook and it was never returned in June? (¿Qué pasa si mi estudiante todavía tiene su Chromebook y nunca fue devuelto en junio?)

    • Any district chromebook that wasn’t returned will be or already has been locked and unable to be used.  In order to get your chromebook unlocked, you will need to complete the annual paperwork and pay the annual insurance fee (or confirm a payment option with a school official).  If a family uses our online options for forms and payment, then they will NOT need to come to McKean to get the chromebook unlocked.  We can unlock remotely, but must have the paperwork and payment completed first.
    • Cualquier Chromebo​ok que le pertenece al distrito que no haya sido devuelta ya ha sido o será bloqueada y no va a ser posible utilizarla. Para conseguir que su Chromebook sea desbloqueada, necesitará completar la documentación anual requerida y pagar la tarifa de aseguranza anual o confirmar una opción de pago con un empleado oficial de la escuela. Si usted utiliza nuestras opciones de pago y llena el formulario en línea entonces no necesitará pasar por la escuela para que la Chromebook sea desbloqueada. Esta puede ser remotamente desbloqueada, pero primero debe asegurarse de tener la documentación y pago completados. 

    What if my student never turned in their chromebook and doesn’t have it in their possession (maybe it is lost, maybe they claim to know where they left it)? (¿Qué pasa si mi alumno nunca entregó su Chromebook y no lo tiene en su poder (tal vez se haya perdido, tal vez afirme saber dónde lo dejó)?)

    What if I have questions or concerns about paying the annual insurance fee? (¿Qué pasa si tengo preguntas o inquietudes sobre el pago de la tarifa anual del seguro?)

    • There is a place to indicate your preference on the paperwork forms.  The school will work with families as needed.
    • Hay un lugar para indicar su preferencia en los formularios de trámites. La escuela trabajará con las familias según sea necesario.

    What if I have multiple students at McKean in different grade-levels? (¿Qué pasa si tengo varios estudiantes en McKean en diferentes niveles de grado?)

    • Please only make one trip for your family for your convenience, based on the grade-level and last name of either child.
    • Por favor, haga solo un viaje para su familia para su conveniencia, según el nivel de grado y el apellido de cada niño.

    What if I don’t have internet access at my home? (¿Qué pasa si no tengo acceso a Internet en mi casa?)

    • Red Clay is committed to ensure every family can connect to the internet from home.  The district has a few options for families. Please add your information here and a district representative will follow up to support your home wifi needs.
    • El Distrito Escolar de Red Clay está comprometido en asegurar que cada familia se pueda conectar al internet desde su casa.
