• Broken/Non-Functioning Chromebook Procedures

     If a student presents with a non-functioning or broken Chromebook, please use the following procedures:

    1. The parent will need to bring the Chromebook to the school for Ms. Cordle to assess.
    2. Parents will need to fill out the attached form and place it inside the Chromebook.
    3. Once dropped off the front office will contact admin/counselor to see if there is a Chromebook available for exchange.

     When Chromebook is dropped off:

    1. Front office will email Ms. Cordle to let me know the Chromebook is in the building and needs to be assessed. 
    2. Ms. Cordle will look at it as soon as time allows. 
    3. Ms. Cordle will return it to the office if it can be fixed.
    4. The school will notify the parent as to the status of the repair.
