The year is winding down and graduation is right around the corner! Some things to be aware of:
- You have the opportunity to purchase your student issued Chromebook for $20. The fee for the Chromebook can be paid via MyPaymentsPlus or with cash/check in the admin office. This must be paid before May 14th so the fee doesn’t affect your test exemption. If you are not interested in purchasing your Chromebook, fill out this quick form or stop into the library to let us know. We will then make arrangements to return your device before the end of the school year.
- Once you graduate, you will no longer have access to your BPSapps account. This includes all your Google Drive files. Follow these directions to transfer your school files to a personal gmail account. If you have questions or need assistance, stop into the library. After graduation (if you purchased), your device will be removed from the BPS domain and you will log into it with a personal gmail account. If it is still managed by BPS mid-June, follow these directions to remove it from the domain.
- If you have any outstanding Chromebook repair fees or lost book fees, please pay via MyPaymentsPlus or cash/check in the office.
Congratulations and best of luck!
