Google Chromebook Information

Teacher devices are being refreshed this year with Google Chromebooks.

Chromebooks:

  • offer cloud-based computing
  • create instant backups
  • eliminate virus/malware threats
  • power up in less than 10 seconds
  • allow individual user settings carry over from machine to machine with your Google login

The Chromebook model selected via staff voting was the ASUS C302 Chromebook Flip.

Features include:

  • a metal body
  • touch screen
  • a 360° hinge for 2-in-1 use (as a laptop or a tablet)

The district also provided a USB-C adapter to accommodate traditional USB devices (like thumb drives, external mouse or keyboard).

Distribution and introductory overview training for the new Chromebook devices started in May with all K-8 classroom and Specials teachers at 7 of our 8 schools. That effort will continue with the remaining teachers and staff during the 2017-2018 school year.

An evolving document with answers to Chromebook questions from teachers and other employees has been created to help assist with the transition.
