Chromebook Help

Most students in grades 6-12 are issued a take-home Chromebook

For students in special programs with cart-based Chromebooks, the teachers will arrange for any appropriate checkouts if needed to support their Distance Learning model.

Elementary students

Each classroom has a Chromebook cart of devices which can be issued for home use on Distance Learning days. Virtual elementary school students are issued Chromebooks from Richard Kane Elementary when school starts, as arranged by the teachers of the virtual classes.

What do I when my Chromebook malfunctions?

    1. Try soft rebooting your Chromebook by holding down the refresh key ↻ while you press the power button.

    2. If that doesn't help, try hard rebooting your Chromebook by pressing and holding the power button until it shuts down. Wait a bit and boot it up fresh.

    3. If you still have no luck, bring the Chromebook to the school office to arrange a swap. The offices are manned on Distance Learning days.
