Guidelines for 10th Grade

 

10th grade students who attended Franklin County School during the previous school year of 2014-2015 were assigned a Chromebook for school use.  These students and parents were made aware of the policies and procedures for the loan of said Chromebook for school use.  Students entering the 10th grade for this school year will receive the same Chromebook that was assigned to them the previous school year when the contract documents are signed and returned.  Students and parents can read a complete copy of the Chromebook handbook on the Franklin County Schools website.  The following pages in this packet contain a reminder checklist as well as a parent/student contract.  The parent/student contract must be filled out, signed by both the parent and student and returned to the Franklin County School where the student is enrolled.

 

 

10th Grade Chromebook Checklist

 

1.     Chromebooks are the property of Franklin County Schools and are to be 

             used for school related work.

 

     2.  Chromebooks are loaned to each student upon the completion of attached

           contract being signed and returned.

 

     3.  Students are to comply with all rules, policies and expectations at all time to

           retain eligibility to borrow a Chromebook for school use and work.

 

     4.  The loaned Chromebook is subject to monitoring of use and the search of

           contents at any time, thus there can be no expectation of privacy.

 

     5.  As stated in the FCS Board Policies, compliance with the Acceptable Use

           Policy (AUP) is required of all students.

 

      6.  Students/parents/guardian assume full responsibility for the safety, security,

            use and care of the borrowed chromebook.

 

      7.  Lost and/or stolen Chromebooks must be reported to the proper authorities

            within 24 hours.  Failure to follow this guideline will result in the student's

            being financially responsible for replacing the borrowed Chromebook.

 

      8.  A user's right to use and possess the borrowed Chromebook terminates no

            later than the last day of stated school year unless terminated earlier by FCS

            for non compliance of rules or withdrawal from actively attending 10th

            grade at a Franklin County School.

 

      9.  Students are required to take the Chromebook to each class each day with a

           fully charged battery.  It is the student's responsibility to charge the

           Chromebook each night.  Failure to charge the Chromebook will result in the

           student being unable to participate fully in the education opportunity of the

           day and may have to stay after school to make up required class work.

    10.  Users must respect the intellectual property rights of others by crediting

            sources and following all copyright laws.

 

    11.  Students are to treat this equipment with as much care as if you had purchased

           it with your own money.

 

    12.  The Chromebook is borrowed and must not be changed in any way including

            the outside case appearance as well as the operating systems.

 

    13.  If a student is on an athletic team or involved in a club, the student must

           contact the coach or the sponsor for the proper place to store the Chromebook

           while practicing or attending club activities,

 

    14.  No one but the assigned student should be allowed to use the Chromebook. 

           The Chromebook is on loan to a specific student for school work only.  The

           Chromebook must remain in the possession of the assigned student at all

            times.

 

     15.  Identifying tags must remain undisturbed on the Chromebook.  FCS schools

            will keep records and inventory all Chromebooks and accessories each year. 

            Each student is responsible for the specific items loaned to him or her.

Chromebook Care and Use

  

General Handling

The Chromebook is a computer and must be handled with care. There are things you can do to make the Chromebook last longer and offer you a trouble-free and rewarding learning experience.     

 

Care

One of the best features of the Chromebook is the fact that it is portable. It enables you to take your homework and information wherever you go. When transporting the Chromebook, there are a few simple things you can do to protect it.

  • Do not throw the Chromebook.
  • Keep the Chromebook in its protective case at all times.
  • Keep the Chromebook dry, and protect it from rain and snow and any liquid.
  • Do not eat or drink near the Chromebook .
  • Close the lid of the Chromebook before carrying it from one location to another. This

            ensures all mechanical and moving parts are not damaged during transit.

  • Close the Chromebook carefully-from the center of the screen---do not slam it shut.
  • Do not use the Chromebook as a folder to store papers.
  • Do not insert things, especially metal objects, into the openings of the Chromebook.
  • At the end of each day the Chromebook must be plugged in so that the battery is fully

           charged for the next day.

 

Cleaning

  • Wipe surfaces lightly with a clean, soft cloth.
  • To keep the screen clean, do not touch the screen with your fingers.

 

Power Cable

  • Power Cable should be lined up straight with the connector when inserting and removing.
  • Be careful not to jerk / pull / twist your Chromebook around when the cables are attached.

 

Wireless Internet

  • Your Chromebook is a wireless only device.
  • A wireless network is required to use the device
  • There are free wireless "Hot Spots" in Franklin County including the public library.
