UPDATE for 2024
Beginning after the holiday break of January of 2024, TPSS will begin to implement changes for student Chromebooks for grades K-8. We will transition to housing Chromebooks in classrooms rather than requiring students to carry devices between school and home. This change will reduce the amount of device repairs and replacements and will increase the sustainability of the devices for future use. Chromebooks will be stored in classroom carts and managed by teachers so they are always charged and readily available to students for classroom assignments and assessments. Students in grades 5-8 will have access to Chromebooks with bigger screens, which will increase the visibility of work assignments, programs, and other resources. Students who are participating in after-school intervention programs or have other specific needs will have the option of taking a device home if needed. These changes in device management do not affect our high schools. High School students will continue to carry devices between school and home until further notice.
TPSS has purchased a district wide Accidental Damage Plan (ADP) for Chromebooks. Any accidental damage to Chromebooks will be covered under the TPSS Accidental Damage Plan with no charge to the student’s account. Chromebooks take the place of traditional textbooks and are utilized for state and local assessments.
The Device Loan Agreement is signed by the student and parent. Please sign and return page 2 of the agreement which acknowledges the terms of the agreement.

Suggestions for Wifi
Please check with your community library. Many are offering free wifi services to our students. You may be able to park in their parking lot and access wifi from your Tangischools issued devices. Also, our school parking lots may be open for students to use in the evenings or weekends. Please reach out to your child's teacher or school office for more information. If your child is having difficulty completing assignments from home, please notify your teachers. Our teachers and admins are understanding of the circumstances that our students and families are facing (because many of us are facing them too!). An email or a call to the school is the place to start.
