2018-2019 Student Device Deployment
All students at Cambridge High School have the option to receive a Microsoft Surface 3 to use during the 2018-2019 school year. We will be using ZippSlip again this year for electronic Device User Agreements, instead of paper. Device User Agreements are required before a device can be issued. Devices will be distributed to students on Thursday, August 9 who have a signed user agreement by Monday, August 6 at 9:00 am. Students who have User Agreements signed after the August 6 due date will receive their device at a make-up session during Study Hall and CLAWS the week of August 13.
