There are still school issued Chromebooks that have not been turned in. If you still have a school Chromebook from the school closure last spring, it needs to be turned in as soon as possible. This can be done at any building in the district. Any Chromebooks not turned in by August 11, 2020 will have a $250.00 charge added to the fees for the student it was assigned. If you have questions, please contact your school or the NCSD Technology Department (641) 791.3647 Thank you!
