Chromebook Program

Since 2016, each student in grades K-12 has received a school-issued Chromebook as part of their curricular materials for the school year. HP 11 G9 EE ChromebookThe student keeps their school-issued Chromebook for up to four years or until graduation, whichever comes first. Currently, all students use the HP 11 G9 EE touchscreen Chromebook.

Why Chromebooks?
Chromebooks are simple, secure, and shareable devices that educators and students can use for internet browsing and school work. They also have a variety of apps/extensions, automatic updates, and allow schools to administer online state testing. In addition, Chromebooks tend to be more budget-friendly compared to other types of devices.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How does a student receive help with their Chromebook?
    Students can visit the technology office during the school day to receive help if their Chromebooks are not working properly or need repair. Students and parents/guardians can also email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions or issues they are experiencing. After sending an email, a technology department member will respond as soon as possible (emails sent after 3:00pm may not be answered until the next school day). In some cases, the technology support page may help with common questions or issues.
  • What if a student needs a repair or forgets to bring their Chromebook to school?
    The technology department provides a limited amount of loaner devices in case a student needs a repair or does not bring their Chromebook to school. Loaners should be returned at the end of the day unless given permission otherwise. Students needing repairs will be given priority over students who simply don't have their device.
  • Can we purchase replacement parts and repair the Chromebook ourselves?

    No, all Chromebooks must only be repaired or modified by technology department staff. All replacement parts must be purchased through the school to ensure compatibility and functionality.

  • Can we purchase or bring our own device instead of using the school-issued Chromebook?
    Students must use the school-issued Chromebook while at school due to state testing, web filtering, and software. Chromebooks are enrolled and managed by the technology department. Personal devices cannot be enrolled and don't provide the same experiences or requirements needed. However, students may use personal devices for school work at home.
  • Are students protected from inappropriate websites and content?
    To meet the law requirements, all school devices are filtered and monitored, and website/search history is tracked. Student Chromebooks are filtered at school and at home, however, filtering at home is slightly less restrictive. While South Central uses a web filter and makes a reasonable effort to ensure student safety, no filter is 100% perfect. Any suspicious websites or apps should be reported for further review. South Central will not be held accountable for any harm or damages that result from the use of school technologies.
