The Chromebook is issued toLenovo 300e Chromebook the student in the same way textbooks are rented from the school corporation. The student keeps their school-issued Chromebook for up to four years or until graduation, whichever comes first.

Current Student Chromebooks:
  • Lenovo 300e 2nd Generation (Grades 2-12)
  • HP 11 G6 EE (Kindergarten & 1st Grade)
Why Chromebooks?
Chromebooks are simple, secure, and shareable devices that educators and students can use to create and collaborate together. They also provide a variety of apps/extensions, online file storage, and automatic updates. In addition, Chromebooks are much more cost-effective compared to other types of devices.

Chromebook Agreement Policy
Students are allowed to take Chromebooks home for use on homework and virtual learning assignments. All devices will be monitored and the web content will be filtered, both at school and when taken home. Students are responsible for the care and upkeep of the device, which includes ensuring the Chromebook is charged nightly and is ready for use at school each morning. All students receive a Chromebook, charger, and protective carrying work-in case that is to be used at all times.

In addition to the provisions of the South Central Responsible Use Policy, the following additional items apply to students participating in the 1:1 Chromebook program:
  • Students will bring their Chromebooks to school each morning with the battery fully charged.
  • Students will transport their Chromebook to and from school in the school-issued carrying case and will store the Chromebook in a secure location when not in use.

  • No attempts will be made without school permission to modify, reconfigure, or repair the Chromebook. Repairs are done only by South Central technology department staff (or by a 3rd insurance company). 
  • Students will immediately report all malfunctions, damage, or loss of a Chromebook to a classroom teacher or the technology department.
