Chromebook Collection Strategies
Chromebook collection does not have to be a daunting task. Creating a clear plan which includes your administration, SBT, Digital Learning Coach, and school staff is the key to success. Consider these points to ponder as you create your collection plan.
Chromebook Collection Ideas
Notify parents/guardians early of upcoming chromebook collection and your school site procedures. Use your school website as well as electronic/ written communication.
Messages might include clear language about chromebooks that are lost, broken, or not returned in working order. Provide a list of fees for repairs/ replacements.
Or, consider creating an audit form to be completed and signed at home. (Form example - Chromebook Collection)
Ensure staff, students, and parents are aware of all collection procedures using video. Topics might include:
- Chromebook Care - Cleaning Tips
- Form Completion
- Audits for Damage
How will you ensure your devices are in working order and ready for deployment next school year? Consider an audit process to check chargers, screens, exterior, and audio.
Include students as leaders on their campus. Partner with your Computer Science, STEM, robotics, or other classes so students can support your chromebook collection.
- check charging cables
- prepare charging cables for storage
- clean screens / devices

- inspect headphone jacks
Chromebook collection is a process. Create stations to ensure your chromebooks are prepared for storage.
