Chromebook Procedures

Chromebook Procedures 

The Chromebooks do not leave the classroom (and definitely not the building! The students may not take them home).

Teachers are responsible for the Chromebooks in their classroom - make sure students don't damage or steal them. 

Reminder: the carts must be kept locked when not in use and classroom doors must be locked when the teacher is not in the room.

** Also read the Chromebook Usage Guidelines attached at the bottom of this page **

Students use them in that class, then put them back. They will have access to Chromebooks in each classroom and all of their data is stored online. 

YouTube and various sites are blocked on the Chromebooks due to network bandwidth issues. If you want students to see a video, please show it on the projector in your room. 

Teachers do not get Chromebooks. They can do the same things on their desktop using the Chrome Browser. 

Printing from a Chromebook - You don't print. The students either email the work to the teacher or, if it is a Google Doc they are using, just share it to the teacher.

1st use at start of school year (See also "Chromebook Deployment Guide" http://goo.gl/xI1pYi - use as checklist) 

  • number each Chromebook and slot in cart, 1-30 (if you already have this setup, confirm all 29 Chromebooks are present and in working order)
  • student gets assigned Chromebook by # and always uses that one
  • student "adds user" and enters their Google Apps account info. 
    • For the first week or so, the students will have to add their user each time they go to use the Chromebook. This allows the Chromebook to automatically erase older accounts on the device. 
  • should be no more than 6-7 users per device on start screen
  • if a student does not have a Google Apps account, notify the Help Desk to have the account set up. New students will have accounts created within a few days of enrolling. 
    • Guest Access is not allowed. Students must have an account. 
Keep cart plugged in at all times.

Keep cart locked when not using Chromebooks, keep key secure, keep wheel locks locked to prevent movement.

Lock classroom when not in use.

Ensure all Chromebooks are in the cart and accounted for after each class. The teacher is responsible for them.

Use caution when plugging and unplugging Chromebooks to power cords.

Use caution to not tangle cables and wires.

Use caution with Chromebooks. They are electronics and can break if mistreated.

Google Drive can open, view, create and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint files 

Extremely Important information to share with your students about the care and handling of the Chromebooks. 

Reminder: the carts must be kept locked when not in use and classroom doors must be locked when the teacher is not in the room.

Reminder - if a student damages a Chromebook, they will be held accountable for the repair. Make sure you document everything. 

Google+ - this social media app cannot be used by grades K-8 - if a student in those grades tries to create an account there, it will suspend their entire Google account. 

Screen Care:

The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. We recommend educating the students and teachers to:

● Try not to lean on top of the Chromebook with body weight

● Refrain from placing heavy textbooks or other items thrown into a backpack on top of the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.

● Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils,



Cleaning your Chromebook:  Clean the screen with a soft, dry antistatic, or microfiber cloth. Do not use window cleaner or any type of liquid on the Chromebook. You can also use packaged pre-moistened

eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen.
