Get to know Your Chromebook...
A Chromebook is a laptop style computer that runs the Chrome operating system, and a device that most of our students have already used for instructional purposes in the classroom. Chromebooks are highly durable, and easy to manage, and easy to use. Just sign in with the school user account, and it's ready to access all of the resources used for class.
We are deploying Chromebooks by HP and Lenovo, and any future deployment will likely rely on the Lenovo model 100e line type of devices.
Basic Expectations, Best Practices, and #ProTips
We expect you to take care of this awesome opportunity!
Here are some tips and best practices to make your Chromebook experience amazing:
Keep it charged - when you get home, plug it in!
Keep your charging cord with you at all times - you never know when you might need it!
Chromebook not on your desk or in your hands? Then it should be in the the sleeve or travel bag!
You're responsible for your device - don't let other interfere, or handle your device unless you're willing to deal with the consequences. Remember - you're liable for any damages!
Keep your device clean! But be careful how you clean it... A wipe with a moist cloth is ok, but don't drench it in cleaners, etc.
Got a Problem? We can help.
You may wish to take some, or all of your Google Drive files and email with you, or transfer them to another account. It’s easy to do, and here are some instructions on how to make it happen.
OPTION # 1 – MIGRATE / DOWNLOAD YOUR DATA
In short, you can export and download your data from the Google products you use, like your email, calendar, and photos. In a few easy steps, create an archive to keep for your records or use the data in another service. Note: Downloading your data does not delete it from Google’s servers.
Use https://takeout.google.com/ to migrate and download your data from Streetsboro. This will only migrate data from your Google account. Data stored anywhere else will not be migrated.
OPTION # 2 – TRANSFER YOUR DATA TO ANOTHER GOOGLE ACCOUNT
Copy content from your school account to another account easily, using almost the same process as above. If you don’t have another Google account, you can create one in the process.

WHAT HAPPENS TO MY GOOGLE ACCOUNT AT STREETSBORO?
Your account will stay intact for at least a few years. We don’t have any plans of turning them off, but may at some point limit email / usability of the account, and archive them.
Student email accounts are disabled in September in the year they graduate to allow for migration and downloading of data, if desired.
The Acceptable Use Policy still applies to you as long as you are an active user of the account, and you are subject to its terms. Please take a minute to review the AUA, here. There shall be no expectation of privacy, and your accounts are subject to review at any time.
All staff accounts will be secured at the end of the school year, before the end of June.
