Hamilton students receive a Chromebook at the start of each school year through the DPS MyTech program. This program and these devices ensure every student has access to technology to enhance and support learning. Part of the DPS registration process is agreeing to your child using said device, see below for a copy of that agreement.
The student will use the device according to instructors’ guidance while outside of school.
Parent acknowledges that while the District makes every effort to ensure the security of the device, students may be able to access unsecured and unfiltered networks outside of the control of Denver Public Schools. Responsible use of network resources is the sole responsibility of the student and parent.
The parent and student will be personally responsible for any intentional or unintentional damage to or loss of the computing device while in the student’s care – on or off of school property. The cost of this repair or replacement will be offset by the MyTech fee. (See MyTech Handbook for details – http://MyTech.dpsk12.org)
Please see below to access the MyTech agreements that outline accidental or intentional damage including lost Chromebooks. When a student loses their Chromebook, a replacement fee will be added to their account. The fee will need to be paid by the family before a new device is checked out to the student. Call the front office if you have any questions or concerns or visit the DPS MyTech website.

Schoology App Overview for Parents in English and Spanish
Hamilton uses Digital Deets to send communication to Hamilton families. It is important each family downloads the app to their mobile device and create an account in Digital Deets to stay up-to-date with what is happening at Hamilton. Use the links below to help you learn how to download the app to your mobile device and create an account.
DPS Parent/Student Portal is a website where parents/guardians and students can check on how students are doing in school. You can check on your child’s grades, attendance, state and district tests, and much more.
Parents do not need to go to the school to get their Person ID or GUID. You can create your own account right through the website. Parents will go directly to DPS Parent/Student Portal and click on “Getting Started”. If all of the information on the form matches what the school has on record, you’ll be prompted to create your username and password. If you need your student’s ID number, this number is the same as the lunch number. Follow the instructions on the website. A valid email address is required in order to create a DPS Parent Portal account.
Students use their DPS credentials to log in; typically student ID and date of birth.
The Parent/Student Portal provides support materials for Spanish, Vietnamese, Arabic, or Somali. Click on the flags located in the upper-right section of the website to choose from our multiple languages. There are plans to add more languages in the future.
