SALEM, Ore. (KOIN) — Dozens of parents and students in the Salem-Keizer School District waited in a line on Thursday to rent school-issued Chromebooks for online learning.
Oregon officials require school districts to start offering some sort of classwork. To meet students’ distance learning needs, Salem-Keizer is handing out 51,000 Chromebooks.
Parents started lining up more than an hour before the distribution started on Thursday. Parents can also pick up the Chromebooks on Friday at 8:30 a.m. at any high schools in the Salem-Keizer School District. Student IDs must be presented.
