Junior and Senior Laptop Guidelines for 2016-2017
Laptop computers will be required for Avon High School students during the 2016-2017 school year. Laptops are intended for use at school each day and students are responsible for bringing their laptop to all classes. Students in grades 11 and 12 may rent a Lenovo 11e with Windows 10 from the school corporation or bring a laptop from home. The rental fee for the district Lenovo laptop computer will be $110.00 and is added to textbook rental fees. The following chart lists the minimum specifications necessary for any laptop a junior or senior student may use during the 2016-2017 school year. Families may wish to look into e-commerce sites such as amazon.com, newegg.com, and Walmart.com which sell refurbished laptops that meet these specifications at a competitive price. Please note that only students in grades 11 & 12 are permitted to bring a laptop from home; students in grades 9 and 10 use the HP Stream issued to them last school year. Please click on the link below for the entire list of specifications and guidelines.

K-6 Digital Summer Learning Page Available for Avon Families
The balanced calendar addresses summer loss statistics by reducing time away from school relative to traditional calendars. Two months away from school may still have an impact on all learners, especially younger children. Keeping your child in a routine of learning and exploration is just a click away this summer!
For this reason, the Digital Summer Learning Page is being provided to our families to promote continuous learning throughout the summer months. A wealth of resources may be accessed through the ACSC website and do not require an ACSC student login. Make summer learning sizzle and boost your child’s learning confidence by engaging in these fun activities!
