Student Chromebooks

Policies

APS provides Chromebooks for all students for educational purposes. When a student moves from one APS school to another APS school, current policy is that they are allowed to take their Chromebook with them to their next school. When a student disenrolls or attends a non-APS school, their Chromebook - or any other technology device - must be turned in to the school that issued it.

Students enrolled in CEC classes MUST turn in their devices to CEC.

Students choosing to use a personal device must abide by the APS Acceptable Technology Use Policy.

Please note some teachers will require an APS Chromebook for their assignments or assessments, and it is the student’s responsibility to check out a device well in advance of the day it is needed, as there may not be a device available at the last minute.

Expectations for Device Care

  • Student will not leave the device unattended at any time while at school or in a public place.
  • Student will not remove the District barcode labels or mark the device in any way with markers, stickers, scratches, engravings, etc.
  • Student will not remove the hard drive and/or modify the device’s operating system in any way.
  • Student will not install any unauthorized software or browser extensions.
  • Student will notify school staff as soon as possible if device is lost, stolen or damaged.

Lost or Damaged Student Technology Devices

Current policy requires student technology devices and AC power adaptors to be collected at the end of each school year or upon transfer or disenrollment. Failure to turn in your assigned device may result in the student being charged a replacement cost.

If a device and/or AC power adaptor has been defaced or damaged beyond the normal wear, the student or family may be charged a fee for repairs or replacements. Families may also be charged for replacements if devices are lost or stolen. Students should notify administration as soon as possible of damage or loss so an investigation may take place. The school may withhold the grades, diploma, or transcripts of the student responsible for damage or loss of any technology devices or equipment until the parent/legal guardian or student has paid for the damage or loss.

If your APS Chromebook is not working and you need to swap it, please email Sue Estell, ECA / CEC Tech Support, or visit room B101.

Student Use of Technology

At the beginning of each school year, APS asks that every student and their parents/guardians review the district's Acceptable Use of Technology policy and agree to abide by it.

ECA requires students/guardians to sign the Acceptable Use of Technology Agreement Form and submit it prior to checking out a technology device. You may bring the signed form when you come to check out a Chromebook, or you may send it by email to Sue Estell, ECA Tech Support.
