1:1 Chromebook Initiative
Beginning in the 2017-2018 school year, all students at Hanover HS will be provided a Chromebook for use in their classes. It is the school's belief that both students and staff will benefit from a common learning platform. Below are some of the commonly asked questions regarding our 1:1 Chromebook Initiative.
- What is a Chromebook?
- When do students get their Chromebook?
- Do students have to use a Chromebook?
- Can students take their Chromebook home?
- What if a Chromebook is damaged?
- When do students have to pay for damage?
- Is student activity monitored?
- What if a student forgets their Chromebook?
- I forgot to charge my Chromebook, what can I do?
- What do I do if I have lost my Chromebook?
- How do I request a Chrome app or extension?
- How do I work with my docs offline?
The intent for our 1:1 initiative is to provide a common experience for all students. While it is not prohibited to bring your own device, we do not provide support for personal devices. Our staff designs instruction with the assumption that all students will be using a Chromebook to complete assignments.
Yes! However, students must have a signed Chromebook agreement on file. Students are responsible for bringing their Chromebook to school, fully charged, each day. While not required, we recommend transporting your Chromebook in a padded sleeve or protective pouch in your backpack.
Update! In 2018, the Chromebook agreement went digital! Students were asked to agree to the terms via email.
Beginning in the 2017-2018 year, all students will receive district insurance for some damage. Each device will receive either a screen replacement or a charger replacement at no cost to the student. Beyond these two situations, any damage not covered by the factory warranty will be charged to students. For Chromebooks that sustain damage beyond what can be repaired, the maximum cost of a replacement device will be charged ($250). Fees are listed in the PowerSchool Portal and must be paid by the end of the school year.
Students and staff may request apps and extension by completing this form. Request are review for applicability to instructional goals. Apps and/or extensions that create a safety or security concern to will not be approved.
