Every student in grades 4-12 will be provided a laptop. Returning students must bring their BTCS backpack and charger with them in order to be issued a laptop. Except students in grades 6-9, who will be issued a new charger with their device. Students receiving laptops for the first time will be issued a backpack. Laptops will be distributed at each child's school (for the students in that school only), with the exception of Tennessee Middle School where students will go to Viking Hall.

Parents and students can expedite the time spent at the on-site training by completing a portion of the process online prior to arriving to laptop distribution. The online portion includes: 1) verifying and updating your child's information, 2) watching a brief training video, and 3) paying (or selecting a payment method for) the $50 technology usage fee. Any technology fines must be paid in full prior to a student being issued a laptop.

Elementary and Tennessee Middle School

Students in grades 4-8 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to pick up their laptop. Parents/legal guardians must provide valid identification to ensure the safety of each student's information.

7th Grade Immunizations

Students in 7th grade will not be issued their laptop without proof of the required immunizations on the 2010 Immunization Certificate, which may be obtained from the Health Department or a primary care physician. Schools do not have this form. For more information, go to the Tennessee Department of Health Childhood Immunization page.

Tennessee High School

Parents of Tennessee High students are not required to attend laptop distribution. However, your child will not be issued a laptop until a parent/guardian completes the online process. If you need assistance or access to a computer to complete the online process, please contact the school at (423) 652-9494 and press "2" for the Counseling Office to schedule an appointment.


Tuition Students

For students residing outside of Bristol, Tennessee, city limits, tuition must be paid prior to the student being issued a laptop. Tuition takes one business day to process. Therefore, tuition paid on the day of deployment will not be processed in time for the student to receive a laptop.
