Chromebook Frequently Asked Questions
What Is a Chromebook?
Chromebooks are small laptop computers that run Google’s Chrome operating system.
Do you need Internet Access to use a Chromebook?
Chromebooks work best when connected to the internet. However, some Chromebook functions are still able to be performed offline (e.g. Gmail, Google Drive, some apps). It is important to understand though that after completing work offline on a Chromebook it needs to be connected to WIFI to sync the work to our cloud-based storage.
Can I opt my student out of receiving a Chromebook?
The Chromebook is a necessary tool to be used in the learning process. Students cannot opt out of a district issued Chromebook and may be required to use it during the day.
Who else can use my child’s device?
Your child will be held responsible for Chromebook usage. We do not authorize others to use a student’s Chromebook.
