        TECHNOLOGY & DEVICE RESOURCES

        The District's Department of Technology (Tech 25) has been working to ensure that our students and families not only have the access they need to participate in remote learning successfully, but they are also working to give our families and students the safest and most seamless experience possible.

         

        For all things Tech during this remote time, visit www.sd25.org/RemoteTech

         

        Please know that a district employee will never visit your home to retrieve a chromebook. If you need to return a chromebook or need to have one repaired, please bring the device to your child’s school. The main office and IT Department will assist you. If you are ever in doubt, you can always contact the district or child's school for information.
