2019-2020 Digital Dreamers Device Deployment (Chromebooks)
The Digital Dreamers comprehensive technology program is the district’s initiative to increase students’ technological footprint and prepare them to be globally competitive students.  In order to support this initiative, all students at PCMS are eligible to receive a Google Chromebook.  The Chromebook is considered educational material, and just like a traditional textbook, it is a resource to support teaching and learning. It is the expectation that all PCMS students will complete the registration agreement to receive a Chromebook, as the Chromebooks are required for Georgia Milestones testing and other mandatory assessments.
 
DeKalb County School District will assign a Chromebook to students in grades 6th–12th for use during the academic year (SY 2019 –2020). Chromebooks remain the property of DCSD and must be returned upon withdrawal from District and/or end of year collection process. Parents and students are required to read, sign, and follow the guidelines withinthe user agreement, as well as all school, classroom, and School District policiesand procedures regarding behavior and technology use.

Please click the following link to print & sign the user agreementParents and students must sign and return this agreement before a device can be issued. Students can start turning in their signed forms to their homeroom teacher to receive their Chromebook, beginning Monday, Aug. 15th. However, chromebooks will not be distributed until after Labor Day. See distribution schedule in next paragraph. 
 
Distribution Schedule:  
8th grade - August 27th
7th grade - August 28th 
6th grade - TBD - there is a shortage of chromebooks and we want to be sure the entire grade level is issued chromebooks at one time. 
 
There is no mandatory insurance fee for Chromebooks this year. However, optional insurance plans are available. For optional insurance plans, please go to the following link:
 
If any portion of the Chromebook (charger, bag, the Chromebook itself) was missing when the student turned it in last May, a replacement must be purchased before a new Chromebook may be issued this year. Please click the following link to purchase replacement parts (replacement parts may not be purchased from another source):
