1:1 Information

Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, students in grades 5-8 will be issued a Chromebook as part of their curricular materials for the school year.  The Chromebook is a rental issued to the student in the same way textbooks are rented from the school district and issued to students for use throughout the year.  Students will be able to take their chromebooks home for use on homework and eLearning assignments.  

All chromebooks will be monitored and content will be filtered, both at school and when the device is used at home or in any other location.  Students are responsible for the care and upkeep of the device, which includes ensuring that the Chromebook is charged at home every evening and is ready to use at school each morning.  Every student will receive a protective carrying case that should be used at all times.

The following information outlines expectations for proper Chromebook use:
  • Users should bring the device to school fully charged each school day.

  • The device should not be altered or modified in any way without permission of a teacher or administrator.  This includes the installation or removal of software or applications.

  • Use of the device may be monitored both on and off the school network.

  • Users are financially responsible for any costs associated with replacing or repairing the device.  Costs may be incurred for repairs needed as a result of general use, wear and tear, negligence, or misuse.  

  • All needed repairs should be reported to a teacher or the technology department immediately.  All repairs must be conducted through the Westville Technology Department.

  • Users who leave the school during the school year must return the device, along with all issued accessories, at the time they leave the district.  Fees collected as a part of this program will not be refunded.

  • Devices that are issued with a carrying case should be kept in the case at all times when not in use.  Only the case issued by the school should be utilized.
