Chromebook 1:1 Policies and Insurance

We are happy to announce that for the 2018-2019 school year, all 9th grade students will be issued a Chromebook for educational use at school and at home.  While these Chromebooks are district property, they will be treated as a textbook, meaning that the student and parent will be responsible for its care. The devices will be issued at the start of the school year, and will be used until students reach the 12th grade.  At the end of the 12th grade year, students will check them back in to the district.

The Chromebooks and the access they will provide, will allow us to not only integrate more technology into your student’s learning experiences, but will also provide additional opportunities for students to collaborate, communicate, create, and apply critical thinking skills in their learning.  To help you better understand this initiative, here are a few items of note:

  • Chromebooks can be used anywhere, and anytime if connected to WiFi

    • Some apps allow offline use if internet is not available at home, meaning students can still engage in the learning process.

  • Chromebooks will be filtered using web filtering software to ensure the privacy and safety of all students, as outlined in district policy and by FERPA/CIPA requirements.

  • Students and Parents are responsible for the care or any damage to the Chromebook

    • Each student will receive a district provided protective case for the Chromebook

    • Insurance  is available to cover the cost of repairs or damage to the Chromebook (see Chromebook Insurance at right).

  • Students will be expected to abide by district policy, regarding acceptable use, when using the Chromebook at school and at home (see Chromebook Expectations for Appropriate Use at right).
