Chromebooks have been issued to all students.
Students are expected to bring a charged chromebook to school each day. We have limited chromebooks to loan and/or chargers for student use throughout the day.
Remember to power your chromebook on and off each night in order to allow updates to your system.

Chromebook Repairs – Face-to-Face/eLearning Students
On days that students physically attend school, students may turn in their Chromebook for repair at their school and receive a loaner device. Once repaired, the Chromebook will be returned to the school which must then be returned to the student.
On days when students participate in eLearning, students may bring Chromebooks to M.T. Anderson Support Center, 100 Blassingame Road, Greenville, SC 29605 for repair and receive a loaner device. Once repaired, Chromebooks will be returned to the student’s home school and must be returned to the student in exchange for the loaner Chromebook.

Greenville County Schools is pleased to be able to provide a personal device for every student’s to use in the classroom and at home to enhance their educational experience. Greenville County teachers are preparing students for jobs and careers that will be heavily focused on technology. For students, the ability to use technology efficiently to get work done, creatively to produce work and effectively to communicate and collaborate with others will be critical to survive the 21st Century workplace.
We live in a century defined by change. Many political and socioeconomic factors that have limited the economies of parts of the world have slowly been removed while huge technological advances have been made, allowing universal access to the flattening power of the Internet. Ubiquitous access to the Internet has shifted the demand on American students to develop skills that prepare them for more than the traditional workplace. Students in America today are no longer alone in competing for jobs in America.
Greenville County believes that it is our responsibility to prepare students for all paths of life including future education and future careers, especially careers that do not exist currently. We believe we must provide students with the skills necessary to adapt to change in a century that has seen change more rapidly than any previous century.
