Chromebooks are on their way to middle schools in Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 this summer after the Board of Education approved the purchase that will provide one-to-one personal learning devices for all students in grades 6-8.
Using funding provided by the Vision One91 referendum approved by voters in 2015, the District will purchase 2,100 Chromebooks from Best Buy Education, along with management licenses for all the devices and support in preparing them for student use.
Any problems with student Chromebooks over the summer should be fixed only by district technology support. Do not take your Chromebook to another repair place.
You can make an appointment on the Summer Chromebook Support Calendar.
Hours: 8-11 am on Mondays and Thursdays
