Chromebook School Guidelines


Welcome to the new school year! Students in grades 9-12 can check out a school-owned Chromebook. These devices are essential tools for your education. Please use them responsibly according to the following guidelines in Globe Unified School District.

However, any student who uses a school-owned Chromebook must comply with, understand, and adhere to the following guidelines below.

Receiving Your Chromebook

1. Distribution: Chromebooks will be distributed on designated dates before the new school year. Each student will receive a Chromebook, a charger, and possibly a protective case.

2. Initial Setup: Instructions on setting up and logging in with the school-provided Google account will be given during distribution.

Usage Guidelines

1. Educational Use: Use Chromebooks for classwork, research, and other educational activities.

2. Personal Use: Limited personal use is allowed if it doesn't interfere with school responsibilities and follows the school's acceptable use policy.

3. Classroom Etiquette: Follow teacher instructions; Chromebooks should be closed or put away when not in use.

4. Digital Citizenship: Be respectful and responsible online. Avoid cyberbullying and respect privacy.

Care and Maintenance

1. Handling: Carry your Chromebook in its protective case or backpack. Avoid placing heavy objects on it and handle it gently.

2. Storage: Store in a safe, secure place and avoid extreme temperatures.

3. Charging: Charge nightly and bring your charger to school if needed.
