General Chromebook Information
Grades K-5 classes each have a Chromebook cart in their classroom with devices that remain in school.
Grades 6-12 are 1-to-1, where every student is expected to have their school-assigned Chromebook with them in every class.
7th and 8th grade students are assigned the same model they used in 5th and 6th grade.
9th Graders are issued new devices that they will use throughout their High School career. Students are responsible for having the devices charged for each day, clean and in working order throughout the year. To assist with this the school offers all 6-12 grade students the option to purchase a Chromebook protection plan within 2 weeks of being issued a Chromebook. This $15.00/year plan covers the Chromebook from accidental damage and repairs of their assigned Chromebook, excluding the power charger and lost devices.
If a student has an outstanding fee assessed for a Chromebook, charger or repair from the previous year, they will not receive a replacement Chromebook until all fees are resolved. 7th and 8th grade students receive their Chromebook, charger, and case in their homeroom. Freshmen will receive their assigned Chromebooks from Tech Staff on Open House night. New 9th-12th grade students should stop in the Media Center the first day of school to get their assigned Chromebook.
General Chromebook Tips
NOTHING NEEDS TO BE INSTALLED ON SCHOOL CHROMEBOOKS.
Student Chromebooks cannot be set up to print on home printers. To print, sign into your child's Google account from a home computer and print from there.
Students must use Google Chrome for classes. If using a family computer, you'll need to Download Chrome.
School Chromebooks are filtered when in use, whether at school or at home. However, NO FILTER IS PERFECT. If you'd like to provide additional filtering on your home network, we highly recommend OpenDNS, a free service.
