REQUIRED Student Laptop Parent Training
Unless your family chooses the option to TRANSFER to SCVS, you will remain a Crooms student and therefore eligible for a laptop regardless of the options you select above.  All Crooms students are required to have the Crooms laptop.  There are multiple programs and system requirements specific to our students loaded on the Crooms laptop.

 

This year all families will complete the online parent laptop training.  In year’s past, this option was not available to families new to Crooms AOIT, but this year we want to give all families this convenience in the best interest of our health and safety.

Laptop Insurance & Technology Fees.
MYSCHOOLBUCKS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ALL STUDENTS

You will need to use MYSCHOOLBUCKS to pay our laptop insurance and technology fees in advance to picking up your laptop. MYSCHOOLBUCKS is the program used for your student’s lunch account.  You will need to know your student’s ID number. If you do not know your students ID number, please request that information from Mary Benton: mary_benton@scps.k12.fl.usLaptop Insurance covers replacement of the laptop in the case of loss or irreparable damage with a $100 deductible rather than the full cost of the laptop at $1,500.  The Technology User Fee assists our academy in covering the cost of replacement parts for laptops as well as the software licensing fees for the vast programs imaged to our student laptops.

• We believe that we increase student achievement by providing consistent and frequent access to faculty and staff members for both parents and students.
• We believe parental involvement is a key to student success and that by providing parents with many opportunities for communication with and involvement in the school, we will improve the environment of the school and advance the mission.
