 All DeKalb County students in grades K-12 will be provided a chrome book for the 2020-2021 academic school year. It will be necessary for these devices to be transported from school to home and back. These devices are 13 inches long, 9 inches wide and inches thick.  This information is provided for your consideration prior to purchasing your child's backpack for the upcoming school year.
