T-Mobile EmpowerED Chromebooks

  • Dear Parent or Guardian,

    Silsbee Independent School District has been awarded the EmpowerED Technology Lending Grant from the T-Mobile. This grant will serve all students at EJMSMS. By taking part in the grant, your student will be loaned a Chromebook with a case and/or internet service. Several informational meetings have been set up for both parents and students. A parent or guardian must be in attendance to sign forms and understand the student’s responsibilities. Forms can be accessed in advance on the website at www.silsbeeisd.org.

    Students will be instructed at that time about proper use and responsibilities. Members of the Silsbee ISD technology team, as well as campus administrators, will be in attendance to answer any questions. Student checkout will follow. This is an excellent opportunity for your student. As a district we are excited to offer this to our students and look forward to seeing the academic success that the digital devices will generate.

    If you are unable to attend any of the meetings, please call Dawn Helton, SISD Instructional Technology Coordinator at 980-7816 to inform her that you are interested to determine a time that would be more convenient.
