5/25/21Student Device Collection for Summer 2021As a reminder, all K-11 grade students should keep their district provided device this summer to continue engaging in learning. Students should be encouraged to use their devices for summer programming or through other enrichment activities such as the DPS Summer of Learning website and Summer of Sora, a virtual e-book and audiobook reading incentive program. Schools should only collect devices from students who are graduating, transferring to a DPS Charter school or leaving DPS. Please ensure that your device inventory is up to date in Snipe before leaving for the year. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your OS.Non-returning Students Can Return DPS Technology by MailStudents who will not return for the 2021-22 school year can return borrowed Chromebooks, iPads, hotspots or other DPS devices free-of-charge through the mail thanks to a partnership with the Denver Public Schools Foundation.

The return of these devices means that DPS won’t have to spend additional funds on replacements and can instead put that money toward supporting our students.Process for non-returning students to return tech via mail:
