All families will be responsible to purchase or provide a laptop for their student based on the minimum required specification. Kennedy Catholic is offering to assist families with making a device selection. Technology department staff are willing to discuss options to assists families in finding a good quality device in the best possible price range. Please contact us with questions. We are happy to help!
We hoped to offer a laptop purchasing option with our education partner, however pricing is more competitive with online retailers at this time. This takes into consideration quality and warranty, but also price and availability. While we are not able to offer the direct sale of devices, we are happy to assist families as they evaluate options.
Chromebooks, iPads and other tablets support will be phased out of our BYOD program
For the 2021-2022 school year, we will begin phasing out the use of Chromebooks and other tablet devices. Windows 10 and Mac laptops remain the preferred option. We have been carefully evaluating the use of these devices during remote learning and found many compatibility issues in some of our courses and programs. If you are planning on purchasing a new device, please keep this in mind so your student can best participate in all of the programs that Kennedy Catholic has to offer.
