Chromebook Guidelines for Students
- 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.
- Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from a teacher. Headphone use may be permitted at the discretion of the teachers.
- Students should have their own personal set of headphones for sanitary reasons.
- 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 will log into their Chromebooks using their school issued accounts.
- Students should never share their account passwords with others, unless requested by an administrator.
- The majority of student work will be stored in Internet/cloud based applications and can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection.
- 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 school will not be responsible for the loss of any student work.
- 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.
- Students may not install any software, or run any third party applications without the consent of their teacher or an administrator
Taking Care of the Chromebooks:
The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. Chromebooks are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen.
- Close the Chromebook screen before moving it, unless directed to do so by a teacher.
- Do not lean on the top of the Chromebook when it is closed.
- Do not place anything near the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.
- Do not poke the screen.
- Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks).
- Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or anti-static cloth.
- Do not bump the Chromebook against lockers, walls, floors, etc. as it will eventually break the screen.
