Laptop Distribution Information Pending

July 30, 2020

Parents and families, thank you for your patience throughout the distance learning process.  We are awaiting further guidance on laptops for student use during distance learning, but we will be able to provide a device for each student who needs one.  Information will be distributed through this website, eNotify, and Terra Centre's News You Choose when it becomes available.  If you have not already signed up for News You Choose, you may click here to register to allow the latest information to come directly to your email.

FCPS recommends that if a personal device is used in place of an FCPS-issued laptop, the personal device needs a screen, keyboard, webcam and microphone. Smartphones, tablet readers, and wearable technologies are generally not suitable substitutes for an FCPS laptop. The personally owned device must be able to run Google Apps for Education and Microsoft Office products.  While FCPS does not recommend specific technology products, the FCPS Technology@Home program enables FCPS students and staff members to purchase and download technology products for home use directly from vendors at discount rates. This includes computers, software, and other technology products.  Please note though that FCPS cannot offer tech support for non-FCPS devices.
