TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Three months after they were initially promised, some parents claim they have yet to receive a Chromebook from Leon County Schools.

The district initially experienced shipping delays for the devices due to the pandemic, but now say they have completed the process of delivering all 32,500 devices to each of the district's schools in alphabetical order.

"Last week we finished up delivering to the five schools going alphabetically," said district spokesperson Chris Petley. "So if you're a parent that was at say W.T. Moore or Sullivan or Woodville, or one of those schools that are at the end of the alphabet, it did take some time to get through, but all of our schools have their devices."

Petley says the district has empowered each school to organize delivery efforts to parents but expects that all parents should have their devices by the end of the week.
