3.0 Taking Care of Your Chromebook Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook issued by the school. Chromebooks that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken to the Parish Office. If a loaner Chromebook is needed, one may be issued to the student until their Chromebook can be repaired or replaced. 3.1 General Precautions ● Food or drink is not recommended near your Chromebook. ● Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully into the Chromebook case. ● Chromebooks and cases must remain free of any writing, drawing or stickers. ● Students should never carry their Chromebook while the screen is open. ● Chromebooks should be shut down when not in use to conserve battery life. ● Chromebooks should never be shoved into a locker or wedged into a book bag as this may break the screen. ● Do not expose your Chromebook to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight for extended periods of time. Extreme heat or cold may cause damage to the Chromebook. ● Always bring your Chromebook to room temperature prior to turning it on. 3.2 Carrying the Chromebook The protective shell of the Chromebook will only provide basic protection from everyday use. It is not designed to prevent damage from drops or abusive handling. ● Students must always carry the Chromebook in the SFBGS provided protective padded case. ● No other items should be stored or carried within the Chromebook case to avoid pressure and weight on the screen. 3.3 Screen Care The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen. ● ● ● ● ● ●

The screens are

Do not lean on top of the Chromebook. Do not place anything near the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen. Do not place anything in the carrying case that will press against the cover. Do not poke the screen. Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, notebooks). Clean the screen with a soft, dry anti-static, or micro-fiber cloth. Do ​not use window cleaner or any type of liquid or water on the Chromebook. You can purchase individually packaged 4

pre-moistened eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen. These are convenient and relatively inexpensive. 3.4 Chromebooks Undergoing Repair ● Loaner Chromebooks ​may be issued to students who have paid the cost of the repair when they leave their Chromebook for repair at the Parish Office. ● If repair is needed due to malicious damage, the school will refuse to provide a loaner Chromebook, unless full replacement cost has been rendered prior. ● Repaired Chromebooks will end up with the original factory image as first received. It is important that students keep their school data synced to the google drives so documents and class projects will not be lost. Personal information that cannot be replaced should be kept at home on an external storage device. ● Students and parents will be charged for Chromebook damage that is a result of misuse or abusive handling. 3.5 Chromebook Warranties Lenovo warrants the Chromebook from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of one year. This warranty is only valid for the first 12 months from the date St. Francis Borgia Grade School takes delivery of the Chromebook. This limited warranty covers normal use, mechanical breakdown, or faulty construction and will provide replacement parts necessary to repair or if necessary, replace the Chromebook. The Lenovo warranties ​DO NOT warrant against damage caused by misuse, abuse, or accidents. Please report all Chromebook problems to the Parish Office. If a Chromebook becomes defective (at no fault of the student) after the Lenovo warranty expires, St. Francis Borgia Grade School will replace the Chromebook at no charge with a refurbished Chromebook of the same age or newer. 3.6 Accidental Damage or Loss Protection As part of the 1:1 Chromebook initiative, St. Francis Borgia Grade School is requiring insurance coverage prior to the deployment of the Chromebook to your child. This is covered in your Book and Technology Fee. The insurance will cover accidental damage or loss due to an act of nature. St. Francis Borgia Grade School will require that a police report be submitted in cases of theft. Fraudulent reporting of theft will be turned over to the police for prosecution. A student making a false report will also be subject to disciplinary action as outlined by the school discipline code. This insurance policy ​does not cover loss of the Chromebook and/or its accessories, cosmetic damage, or damages caused by intentional misuse and abuse. St. Francis Borgia Grade School will assess the Chromebook damage and repair or replace the device if the damage is determined to be within the protection guidelines. ​Parents/Students will be charged for full replacement cost of a device that has been damaged due to intentional misuse or loss. 5

4.0 Protecting & Storing Your Chromebook 4.1 Chromebook Identification Chromebooks will be labeled in the manner specified by the school. Chromebooks can be identified in the following ways: ● Record of serial number and St. Francis Borgia Grade School asset tag ● Individual’s Google Account username Under no circumstances are students to modify, remove, or destroy identification labels. 4.2 Storing Your Chromebook When students are not monitoring their Chromebook, it should be stored in their lockers ​with the lock securely fastened. Nothing should be placed on top of the Chromebook, when stored in the locker. Students need to take their Chromebook home with them every night. The Chromebook is not to be stored in lockers or anywhere else at school outside of school hours. The Chromebook should be charged fully each night at the student’s home. Chromebooks should ​never be stored in a vehicle for an extended period of time, especially during times of extreme temperatures. 4.3 Storing Chromebooks at Extracurricular Events Students are responsible for securely storing their Chromebook during extracurricular events. A locked locker is suggested for storage. 4.4 Chromebooks Left in Unsupervised / Unsecured Areas Under no circumstance should a Chromebook be stored in unsupervised areas. Unsupervised areas include: the school grounds and campus, the cafeteria, unlocked classrooms, library, locker rooms, dressing rooms, hallways, bathrooms, extra-curricular bus, in a car, or any other entity that is not securely locked or in which there is not supervision. Unsupervised Chromebooks will be confiscated by staff and taken to the Principal’s office. Disciplinary action may be taken for leaving a Chromebook in an unsupervised location.

5.0 Using Your Chromebook 5.1 At School The Chromebook is intended for use at school each and every day. In addition to teacher expectations for Chromebook use, school messages, announcements, calendars, academic handbooks, student handbooks and schedules will be accessed using the Chromebook. Students must be responsible for bringing their Chromebook to all classes, unless specifically advised not to do so by their teacher. 5.2 Chromebooks Left at Home If students leave their Chromebooks at home, they are responsible for getting the course work completed as if they had their device present. Students who forget to bring their Chromebook are able to obtain a Chromebook for checkout from the Parish Office. Loaner devices in this instance can only be checked out for the day and are not to be taken home. 5.3 Charging Your Chromebook’s Battery All assigned students are required to take their Chromebook home each night throughout the school year for charging. ​Chromebooks must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition. Students need to charge their Chromebooks each evening. Violations of this policy may result in referral to administration and possible disciplinary action. If fully charged at home, the battery should last throughout the day. 5.4 Screensavers/Background photos ● Inappropriate media may not be used as a screensaver or background photo. ● Presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, alcohol, drug, gang related symbols or pictures will result in disciplinary actions. 5.5 Sound, Music, Games or Programs ● Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes. ● All software/apps/games must be approved by SFBGS. 5.6 Home Internet Access Students are allowed to set up wireless networks for their Chromebook. This will assist them with device use while at home. Students are not required to have wireless access at home. 7

5.7 Printing ● Printing functionality will be available on a limited basis at school and subject to classroom requirements. Teachers will utilize digital copies in most instances. ● The Chromebook will not support a physical printer connection. Instead, users may print to their home printers using the Google Cloud Print service. A wireless home network is required for this. ​http://google.com/cloudprint

6.0 Managing Your Files & Saving Your Work All work should be saved in your Google Drive account. You may, however utilize the Offline features of the Chromebook and sync when you have access to wifi.

7.0 Software on Chromebooks 7.1 Originally Installed Software All Chromebooks are supplied with the latest build of Google Chrome Operating System (OS), and many other applications useful in an educational environment. The Chrome OS will automatically install updates when the computer is shutdown and restarted. The software originally installed on the Chromebook must remain on the Chromebook in usable condition and easily accessible at all times. From time to time the school may add software or apps for use in a particular course. This process will be automatic with virtually no impact on students. Applications that are no longer needed will automatically be removed by the school as well. 7.2 Virus Protection Virus protection is unnecessary on the Chromebook due to the unique nature of its design. 7.3 Additional Software Students are unable to install additional software on their Chromebook other than what has been approved by St. Francis Borgia Grade School who will manage the necessary applications for school work. Students will not be allowed to use personal accounts on school devices, only the account provided by SFBGS. 7.4 Inspection Students may be selected at random to provide their Chromebook for inspection. The purpose for 8

inspection will be to check for proper care and maintenance as well as inappropriate material being carried into the school. Inappropriate use or content will be subject to disciplinary action. 7.5 Procedure for Restoring the Chrome OS If technical difficulties occur, the device may be restored to factory settings. All student-created files on the Google Drive will be intact after the operating system is restored. All files saved on the Chromebook ​that have been synced to Google Drive will be intact. However, all other data (music, photos, documents) ​stored on internal memory that has NOT been synced will not be restored.

8.0 Personalizing the Chromebook Chromebooks must remain free of any decorative writing, drawing, stickers, paint, tape, or labels that are not the property of St. Francis Borgia Grade School.
