Using Chromebooks

All Students:

  1. Media

  • Inappropriate media (pictures, music, movies, etc.) may not be used as Chromebook backgrounds or themes.  The presence of such media will result in disciplinary action.

  • Inappropriate media (images, videos, etc.) may not be stored on or accessed on the Chromebook. The presence of such media will result in disciplinary action.

 

  1. Audio

  • Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from a teacher.

  • Headphones may be used at the discretion of the teachers.

  • Students should have their own personal set of headphones for sanitary reasons.

 

  1. Printing

  • Students will be encouraged to digitally publish and share their work with their teachers and peers when appropriate.

  • Because all student work should be stored in an Internet/cloud application, students will not print directly from their Chromebooks at school.   Students may log into a print station to print their work in the library, computer lab or other networked computer with printing capabilities.

 

  1. Network Access and Security

  • Students will log into their Chromebooks using their school issued Google Apps for Education account and their password.

  • Students should never share their account passwords with others, unless requested by an administrator.

 

  1. Managing and Saving Digital Work With a Chromebook

  • The majority of student work will be stored in Internet/cloud based applications and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection and from most mobile Internet devices.

  • Some files may be stored on the Chromebook’s hard drive.

  • Students should always remember to save frequently when working on digital media (although many cloud-based applications, including Google Docs, automatically save work).

  • The district will not be responsible for the loss of any student work.

  • Students are encouraged to maintain backups of their important work on a portable storage device or by having multiple copies stored in different Internet storage solutions.

 

  1. Following Classroom Guidelines

  • Students are responsible for following school and classroom specific guidelines and expectations for use.  This means following instructions, guidance, and protocols regarding when and how to use the technology in the instructional setting.

 

Student Expectations: Students are expected to bring a fully charged Chromebook to school every day and bring their Chromebooks to all classes unless specifically advised not to do so by their teacher.

  1. If a student does not bring his/her Chromebook to school

  • Students should indicate to their teacher that they do not have a Chromebook with them.

  • Teachers may direct the student who has forgotten the Chromebook to seek the assistance of another student to view information.

  • Loaners are not available for students who forget their Chromebooks at home.

 

  1. Chromebooks being repaired

  • Loaner Chromebooks may be issued to students when their school-issued Chromebook is being repaired in the Chromebook support area.

  • A student borrowing a Chromebook will be responsible for any damage to or loss of the loaned device.

  • Chromebooks on loan to students having their devices repaired may be taken home. (Students will receive an e-mail notice when their computer is ready.  The loaned computer must be turned in to receive their Chromebook.)

 

  1. Charging Chromebooks

  • Chromebooks must be brought to school each day with a full charge.

  • Students should charge their Chromebooks at home every evening.

 

  1. Using a Chromebook Outside of School

  • Secondary students are encouraged to use their Chromebooks at home and other locations outside of school.  A WiFi Internet connection will be required for the majority of Chromebook use, however, some applications can be used while not connected to the Internet.

  • Students are bound by the Greater Clark Responsible Use Policy, Administrative Procedures, the Chromebook agreement, and all other guidelines in this document wherever they use their Chromebooks.
