After shipment delay, Chromebooks for Boise students set to arrive Friday

When remote classes began for Boise students on Monday, roughly 9,900 — or 39% — went without the Chromebooks the district had promised them in June. But a delayed shipment of 13,000 Chromebooks the district ordered in May is set to arrive Friday, said Dan Hollar, the district spokesperson.

The Chromebooks must be processed before they are distributed, Hollar said, so a small portion of the laptops will be distributed beginning early next week. The rest will go out “soon after,” Hollar said.

A recent study from the State Board of Education found that over half the K-12 students in Idaho do not have access to a remote learning device at home.
