Learn on a school-managed Chromebook
To help your child learn at home if school’s closed or they have homework, they can log in to and navigate their school account on their school-managed Chromebook.
Connect a school Chromebook
- Sign in to the Chromebook
Turn on the device and sign in to your child’s school account.
If you don’t have your child’s school account info, ask your child’s school or teacher.
Your child’s school account is set up and managed by the school. It’s different from your, or your child’s, personal Google Account.
- Connect to Wi-Fi
Connect the Chromebook to the Internet with a compatible Wi-Fi network.
- Connect to Bluetooth devices
You can connect most Chromebooks to accessories like mice, speakers, and headphones. Check if your Chromebook works with Bluetooth.
- Customize accessibility features
You can turn on screen readers, automatic clicks, sticky keys and other accessibility features that work for your needs.
Important: If you can’t use some features or services, like your home Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or screen readers, contact your child’s school or teacher. They may need to allow access outside of school.
Monitor a school account
- Supervise a school-managed Chromebook with Family Link
If a child is on both a school Chromebook and school Google Account, parents can’t add controls.
When your child uses a school Chromebook, the school may restrict some services, like websites and apps.
Explore the Chromebook
- Use Google Classroom
Your child’s school may have Google Classroom, which teachers can use to give and receive assignments, offer feedback, and assign grades. Learn more about Google Classroom.
To access your child’s Google Classroom, go to classroom.google.com.
- Use the Chromebook offline
Your child can edit docs and complete work on a school Chromebook even if they’re not on the internet.
- Use Microsoft Office apps
To open and edit Microsoft files, you can use a Microsoft Office online account or use the Chromebook without installing any apps.
