Device Fines and Donation Plan

  • The Covina-Valley Unified School District is excited to launch a take-home student device initiative. Under this initiative, students will be loaned either a Chromebook or Lenovo laptop computer for use on school-related projects and assignments. Technology use is an important part of education. We look forward to using these devices to deliver core content and curriculum. In addition, these devices are an integral part of teaching digital citizenship in a 21st Century learning environment.

The voluntary donation will cover one school year (August 1 to July 30). Students shall be provided with an Electronic Device regardless of whether a voluntary donation is made.
    • Voluntary donations will NOT be returned if the student’s specific device does not require repair or maintenance during the course of the school year.
