About CRLS Connects
CRLS Connects is a comprehensive program at CRLS that aims to provide support and access to technology resources for all students and teachers. In SY16-17 all CRLS teachers were provided a laptop/tablet computer that allows for more flexible, efficient and innovative teaching and collaboration. In SY17-18 all CRLS 9th grade students received a school-issued Chromebook laptop to support their academic work both in and out of school. In addition, twenty-one teachers, who primarily support students in grades 10-12, received a class set of Chromebook laptops allowing daily access to digital resources in support of instruction.

This August, all rising 9th grade, rising 11th grade, and rising 12th grade CRLS students will receive a school-issued Chromebook laptop, effectively providing comprehensive access to technology resources and to support academic success.

The Chromebooks are on loan to students and remain the property of CPS. Students will have access to the Chromebook 24/7 during their enrollment at CRLS.
