Technology Needs

Computer/Internet Not Supplied

Chaffey District Online High School does not supply students with take-home computers or home internet access.  It is the student's and parent's responsibilities to make sure all students are able to log in for success.  CDOHS will maintain normal business hours each calendared school day for open lab time for any currently enrolled student to have access to computer for instructional use.
