14-15 Secondary Chromebook Initiative

The Big Spring School District is launching an exciting new learning opportunity for its secondary students this year.  Every student in grades 6 -12 will be issued a Chromebook for his/her exclusive use throughout high school.  The purpose of this initiative is to fully engage students and create a learning environment that fosters critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity.

For more information about the program, protection plan, and the Chromebook agreement, please see the documentation and communications below...

Security Camera Installation on District Buses

In the Big Spring School District, we continually strive to ensure the safety and security of our students.  For that reason, the District is in the process of installing security cameras on all district buses.  If your child rides a district bus (to/from school, activity buses, field trips, etc.), he/she may be subject to video recording.  For more information, please contact the District Transportation Coordinator at 717-776-2408.
