To help parents understand the laptop initiative, every parent of a student new to HCPS secondary schools is required to complete Parent Technology Orientation. Parents who have completed training for an older sibling or parents who are HCPS teachers are not required to attend training but are encouraged to attend.  Elementary and high school parents are not required to complete training, but there is a lot of content here that is relevant to all parents.
