Students and families should be aware that there are fees associated with the Chromebook damages. If it is determined that an individual student damaged a Chromebook than the student can be charged a fee to repair the Chromebook. This fee will be entered into the library’s catalog and will be deleted from the catalog once it is paid. There are several desktop computers in predominately freshmen classes and these can be used by those with repairs or students from other grade levels who are also in the class
Please remember that a Chromebook is a Google device. A student must have a Google Suite account in order to use one. All middle and high school students in the district have been issued an account; at Glen Oaks Magnet all students also have district Gmail accounts that can be used if properly set up. This Google account will also allow the student to have access to Google Classroom accounts created by teachers and staff. A Google Classroom is a virtual classroom, and teachers can expect a student to turn in assignments into a Google Classroom account if that is the classroom norm/rule. Google Classroom accounts can be accessed from a wide range of devices so a student should be able to access an account even if they do not have a Chromebook. If for any reason a parent or guardian wishes to opt their student out of using a Google account for any reason, they can turn in a signed copy of the sixth page of the district’s 2019-2020 Parent/Student Handbook. Please note that if this is signed the student will not be allowed to utilize a Chromebook throughout instruction, since accessing a Chromebook requires a student to have a Google account.
