*Sierra Laptop collection is completed.  Here are our statistics:

 Laptops returned-

                6th grade- 100% of all laptops returned

                7th grade- 100% returned

                8th grade- 100% returned

                                That's right!  All 978 out of 978 Sierra laptops were returned after being checked out this year!

                Lost or stolen laptops for the year- just under 1% of Sierra laptops were lost or stolen and not recovered this year!

 

Repairs-

                Only 4% of Sierra laptops (39 total) were rated “1-star”, or needing parts ordered and extensive repairs before they can be given back to students for use.  88% of all Sierra laptops will need little to no repair.

                Key replacement will be the most common repair needed.

Thank you taking care of the equipment entrusted to you.  And a big thank your to our Sierra teachers and Tech team for helping students be responsible, accountable and productive with their technology.  Next year, our inventory of student  laptops will be refreshed with new 14” HP Chromebooks!
