ABILENE – The Abilene ISD is asking families who received Chromebooks for online learning during the school shutdown to return those Chromebooks next week at either Abilene High or Cooper.

The district loaned out more than 5,200 devices for students in the district to continue learning during the shutdown that began March 16 and continued through the rest of the school year, which comes to an end next Friday (May 22).

Families can return their Chromebooks and power cords next week (May 18-22) from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at the drive-thrus near the front of either the AHS or CHS campuses. The return will be a drive-thru process so no one has to get out of their vehicle to turn in the device and power cord.

After May 22, anyone who couldn’t make it to AHS or Cooper to turn in the device can do so by taking it to the front entrance of the AISD Technology Center (2905 North 6th St.) at the corner of North 6th and Mockingbird, directly across the street from Abilene High School.
