iPad Optional Insurance

iPad Optional InsuranceChadron Public Schools will not be involved in selling the optional insurance like in previous years. Due to some private information needed from policyholders we felt that it would be more secure if the policyholders would translate this to the insurance instead of CPS.We do recommend a couple of vendors who specialize in the iPad repair industry. They are Worth Ave. Group and GoCare. Both vendors have been offering these services to education for several years.

Chadron High Competes At District Music

On Wednesday, April 23rd, over 14 schools from the North part of District Six converged in Alliance to participate in the District Music Contest.  Many people commonly think of district music contest as a competition.  In fact, there are no awards for 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place, instead nine judges gather to give performers and performing groups a “Rating”.  The following system is used to rate individual and groups of performers:
I – Superior, II – Excellent, III – Good, IV – Fair, V – Needs Improvement.
