ONE TO ONE LAPTOP PROGRAM
Delbarton is a one to one, bring-your-own laptop school. A laptop is now a mandatory component of every student's educational tool kit, just as textbooks, calculators, and pencils are now. The expectation is that the student will have his laptop available at all times should a teacher wish to incorporate technology into the curriculum.
The laptop will be purchased and maintained by individual students and families. Families who qualify for financial aid may be provided with a laptop for student use. For more information, please refer to the Financial Aid section of our website.
Note: The Technology Center cannot repair physically damaged laptops..
