At KPRC 2, we’re dedicated to keeping Houstonians informed. As part of our Ask 2 series, the newsroom will answer your questions about all things Houston.
The question: Will schools be issuing computers to students going virtual? Can they use their own computers?
The answer: Most schools will allow students to use their own devices for virtual learning, others will provide a device to those students in need of one.
Contact your school district if you are in need of a device.
Many school districts have allocated funds to purchase thousands of laptops or Chromebooks as many students will start the school year virtually. These devices will allow access to Wi-Fi and have a microphone and webcam built in.
Pasadena ISD and Cy-Fair ISD announced in their reopening plans that they will provide a laptop for all students, regardless of their chosen method of instruction. Cy-Fair ISD said in their release that student access to a laptop opens doors to quality instruction from teachers.
