This week, we sent out information to our families as we prepare for the possibility of being closed for a longer period of time. The message was sent out through our robo-call system, placed on our information line (466 -1000) and on our website at genevaschools.org.
We are asking the families in the Geneva Area City School District to respond so we can determine the technology needs of our students and families. 

The message is:  We are contacting our families to gather information regarding student devices and internet for Geneva Area City Schools.  

Dear Geneva Families :  This message is IMPORTANT and may need your attention.  

Due to many families in our district not having a device that students can work on at home or not having internet access, we are trying to collect information through various district communication methods.  If you have access to the internet, there is more information on our website at genevaschools.org under "District News" - District Devices for Students. If you do not have access, please call the District Information Line at 466-1000.  

Families will be directed to contact the district ONLY if they are in need of a device or do not have internet.  Please call 466-4831 and when prompted, please press #1 which is the school's attendance line.  Please select the number for your child's school.  If you have multiple children, you can leave a message at one school but please provide information for all children.  

Please provide the following: IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DEVICE or INTERNET CONNECTION 
1.  Name of parent / guardian and a phone number.
2.  The name and grade level of your child (or children - if more than one building). 
3.  If you will need a device. 
4.  If you do have internet access.  *We are trying to get more information for families to see if there is a free or inexpensive internet option at this time. 
5.  If the family has a smartphone with internet access as an option. 

Note:  We are hoping to provide one device per family.  Depending on the overall needs, we will see how many devices we are able to distribute.  We will provide priority to our grade 6-12 students. There is no guarantee that you will receive a device.  Remember the devices are for academic and school purposes only.  Families will be responsible for the care of the devices. 

Chromebook handout to students is planned during the week of April 13th.  A robo-call will be made and information placed on the district's website to provide further information about pick-up.
