Austin ISD/Akins HS Student Laptop Initiative

Every Akins High School student will be assigned their own computer. Austin ISD's 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.
