What are Chromebooks?
Chromebooks are a type of laptop that use the Chrome Operating System (rather than a Windows or the Apple operating system). They are built to boot (start up) quickly and have a long battery life. They store all resources and files on the web (cloud based) and integrate with G Suite (Google) Apps.
Why are we giving Chromebooks to students?
Chromebooks can help make education more student-centered by putting the resources of the Web in the hands of our students and allowing access to files anywhere, any time. They extend learning beyond the classroom walls; foster collaboration, creativity, and innovation; embrace the uniqueness of each individual by allowing varied approaches to demonstrate learning; and motivate students to become active learners.
What are the student expectations?
Students are expected to charge the Chromebook each night, bring it to school each day, and to treat it with respect. Students are also expected to be good digital citizens and abide by all district guidelines.
Is the Chromebook internet access filtered?
All websites accessed on the Chromebook pass through the district filters. A record of all internet activity is available to the district.
What happens if the Chromebook breaks or is stolen?
A student should report all problems/issues to the Chrome Depot staff in his/her building. The district has insurance which covers most routine repair. There are a limited number of loaners to supply students who do not have a working Chromebook. A student who does not take proper care of his/her Chromebook can be charged for repair/replacement as explained in the Chromebook Handbook.
