NCSS Announces Centralized Device Collection
Posted on 05/12/2021
Centralized Device CollectionThe end of the school year is quickly approaching. As such, the Newton County School System (NCSS) Department of Technology is making plans to collect electronic devices loaned to students and families during the past year.

According to Dr. Adam Phyall, NCSS Director of Technology and Media Services, the district will offer a centralized device collection during the first week of June.

“We will collect devices on June 2nd through June 5th at our three high schools,” Phyall explained. “Each school in the district will be assigned a high school where they should return their borrowed devices.”

Phyall said students and any family members must wear a facemask when returning a device. In addition, all devices should be fully charged before returning them to the district, as technicians will run a check on each device.

“We want to remind students and parents to bring all charging cables and hotspots along with Chromebooks to the collection site,” said Phyall.

Collection Schedule:

June 2 = 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM
June 3 = 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM
June 5 = 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM
