Buchanan High School offers a One-to-One (1:1) computer device environment to all students 8th through 12th grade. Beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, our 8th grade students will be assigned a Chromebook to use during the day. 8th grade students will not be allowed to take these units home, however, parents may wish to purchase insurance to cover accidental situations that may arise where they would be liable. The following information is provided for your reference. Buchanan Community Schools does not endorse any of these products.
