Chromebooks

Fremont High students are issued a Chromebook computer for their use in the classroom and at home. This opportunity provides increased educational possibilities for our students and their teachers.

As we prepare students to succeed in the 21 st century, we know they need to be:

  • digitally literate
  • inventive thinkers, problem-solvers, creative decision-makers
  • clear and effective communicators and collaborators
  • self-motivated and engaged learners
  • connected to the world around them and positive contributors to their communities

Students may continue to use whatever device they choose at home; however, no personal devices can be used at school, or connected to the school Wi-Fi. Chromebooks should be charged each night and ready for classes each day.

District-assigned Chromebooks will have three advantages over personal devices: apps and programs purchased for WSD students, tech support, and filtering.

The district works diligently to ensure that each student has a safe learning environment while using the internet. Regardless of its location, each Chromebook is configured to connect to the district’s web filtering system prior to accessing the Internet. Our web filtering is updated on a regular basis in order to ensure your student has maximum protection while online.

Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook which they have been issued by the school, just as they are responsible for textbooks and other equipment loaned to them by the school.

Students will receive training on care and use of their Chromebook by their classroom teachers.

Care and general information is available on the school website. Devices that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken to the Chromebook Tech’s office located near the upstairs elevator (Mrs. Schmitt) for assessment. If a loaner is needed, one will be issued to the student until their device can be repaired or replaced.

Repairs that include defects in materials or workmanship may be covered under warranty. As with all school-issued property including textbooks, students or parents will be charged for damage that is a result of misuse, accidents, or abusive handling.

Parents are encouraged to consider participating in the Repair Assist Program offered through the district. Information can be found on the district website. Premiums can be paid through the MyWeber site or through the school bookkeeper.

All students are required to take their Chromebook home each night for charging. Chromebooks must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition.

Chromebooks should be treated as carefully as students treat their other personal devices, such as phones or tablets. They should never be left or stored in an unsupervised area such as locker rooms, unlocked classrooms, library, hallways, common areas, cafeteria, in vehicles, on the bus, school grounds, or bathrooms.

Chromebooks and/or passwords should never be loaned or given to another student under any circumstance, as per the AUP policy.
