Every Akins HS student gets an Austin ISD Laptop

On August 28, every Akins High School student will be assigned their own computer. The EVERYONE to One initiative extends that opportunity and allows students to take a computer home. The current state of the art for these computers is a laptop that converts to a tablet with a touchscreen. This is known as a “two-in-one” Chromebook. In addition, every student will receive a durable chromebook sleeve.
