Hello Bailey families!

We recognize the frustration of not knowing when your Chromebook will be delivered. We wish we could provide more exact information on delivery dates and times, however, this effort is being coordinated at the district level and not by individual campuses.

 

Be reassured, however.

Deliveries are happening!

 

We have a large district; they are sanitizing each device individually and making deliveries every day all over Austin, so it takes a bit of time to make it happen. We are excited that your child is eager to continue their learning, and we appreciate your patience with this ongoing situation.

Update as of 4/13/20

Chromebook deliveries will continue throughout this week and until all requested devices have been delivered.

If you completed the survey, you are already on the list and you will receive an email notification on the day of delivery. If you want to confirm that your student is on the list, or if you need to make changes to your request, please contact the parent support line at 512-414-9187 and select option 2.

If you have not submitted a survey request, please call 512-414-4990 and leave a message with a preferred callback time. Our staff will reach out to you and collect your information for the request.

If you have already received your student’s Chromebook, please let us know via email at bailey@austinisd.org.

We would also appreciate an update call or email if you have not received the device by the end of the day this Wednesday.

We thank you for your patience as the district undertakes this overwhelming endeavor!

Bailey Families,
The AISD Technology department is still delivering Chromebooks this week.  It appears the delivery plan ran into some snags with the weather late last week as well as issues with the sheer volume of so many door-to-door deliveries.  They are doing their best to make these deliveries as fast as they can.  If you filled out a survey you are on their list.  Please be patient.  If you did not fill out a survey please call the main Bailey telephone line (512) 414-4990 and leave your information so we can add you to the delivery list.  Currently we do not have any information to share about when deliveries will be made to Bailey students.
 
All of our teachers have been informed that Chromebook deliveries have been delayed and they have been directed to be very lenient with due dates and deadlines for these first couple of weeks.  Your child will not be penalized for any late work due to the delay with the Chromebooks.  As soon as the Chromebook arrives please encourage your child to get started on their assignments so they do not fall further behind.  They will have ample time to catch up. 
 

You can also find the most current information about our transition to online learning on the BaileyBears.org website.  Please keep an eye on the website for the latest updates.

 
Mr. Rocha
