Only those students who have received permission from administration will be issued a textbook. Parents requesting a textbook must sign this document stating the inability to access the internet from home.
    The policy is in alignment with the strategic vision to move into a cloud-based, software-defined infrastructure. To prepare our faculty and students for this change, it is necessary to implement the new expectation immediately.
