MSD Wayne IT Department Provides Replacement Computers for Students

With the beginning of the 2020-21 school year fast approaching, and the COVID-19 pandemic still with us, the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township is working to make sure students are able to do schoolwork online.

MSD Wayne is offering students various options for the return to school on August 12. Some students will spend the entire school week in the classroom. Others will follow a hybrid schedule, spending some days in their school buildings and some days at home. And others will learn completely online, utilizing the district’s Wayne@Home option.

The district has developed the options in response to guidance from state and local government and health officials.

“I am so proud of our Back to School Task Force and everyone who is adjusting with every change coming our way,” said MSD Wayne Superintendent Jeff Butts. “We appreciate our families’ understanding as we navigate this pandemic.”

On Wednesday, August 5, MSD Wayne’s Information Technology Department conducted a Chromebook exchange for students in some grades whose devices were in need of repair. Students in various grades use these district-issued electronic devices during both in-person and remote learning.

“We’re making every effort in these unprecedented times to ensure our students’ return to school is safe and as smooth as possible,” said Dr. Butts. “Making sure they have electronic devices that function properly is just one part of this effort.”
