Chromebooks will be issued to all students in grades 4-8 during the first two weeks of school. Parents are required to purchase Chromebook insurance for each device issued. Insurance will cover most issues that occur with the Chromebook during the year, including accidental damage, cracked screen, liquid submersion, fire, flood, loss, and theft. There is an option to purchase additional insurance to cover the power cord and charging block. Chromebooks will not be issued until insurance has been secured. Once insurance has been verified, students in grades 6-8 will be permitted (but not required) to take their Chromebooks home overnight and on the weekends. These students will be required to bring their devices to school fully charged, every day. Students in grades 4 & 5 will only be permitted to take their Chromebooks home in the case of quarantine or other, prolonged (and approved) absence.
For Lower Campus students, Chromebooks (grades 2 & 3) and iPads (grades K & 1) will only be issued to individual students in the case of quarantine or other, prolonged (and approved) absence. Parents of Lower Campus students are NOT required to purchase insurance at this time.
ALL GLOBE students will be required to complete and return an Acceptable Use form before they will be permitted to use school-issued devices. Forms will be available during Open House.
