2020–21 Need-based Laptop Distribution for Leander ISD Elementary Students

On Tuesday, August 4, we will begin loaning Chromebook laptops to elementary students (grades PreK–5) who:

  • have limited or no access to a device at their homes, AND
  • do not have a device from our deployment this past spring (includes all-new PreK and Kindergarten students for the upcoming year)

Any ES student can receive a Chromebook at any of the deployment sites. Please see the device distribution dates/time/process below. Please note that the Aug. 7 locations have changed.

LISD has installed content filtering on the devices in order to keep students safe while online and to comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA). These devices are on loan from Leander ISD to provide learning opportunities for all students and are expected to be returned in the future. 

Because we do not have enough devices to distribute to every elementary student in LISD, we are respectfully requesting that families utilize resources at home if at all possible. This will allow us to better serve our families who do not currently have devices for their students. 

If your child already has an LISD Chromebook:

  • please continue to use the device for remote learning until onsite instruction returns.  

If your child is withdrawing from the district or if they would like to return the district device and use a device available at home for remote learning:

  • please contact the Help Desk at (512) 570-0566 to make arrangements to return the device

Please note that outgoing 5th graders will be returning their Chromebooks during the mLISD laptop deployments at their Middle School campuses.

Chromebook distribution for remote learning will take place at specified elementary campuses on Tuesday, August 4 – Friday, August 7. Students enrolled in the bilingual or PreK programs may pick up their devices at the campus closest to their residence/home if desired.  If you are unable to make it to one of the deployment dates and would like a district device, please contact the Help Desk at (512) 570-0566 to schedule an appointment.

Please see the schedule below for drive-through pickup locations, dates and times.  You may pick up a device at any of the locations.
