Parent Responsibilities
Parents and students are strongly encouraged to attend one of the parent / student meetings during the fall.  The meetings will be announced at each school in the fall.  Parents will be notified in writing by the school office of meeting information.

Student Responsibilities

Students are responsible for the general care of the Chromebook and case they have been issued by the school district.

  1. ACS owned and issued Chromebooks are monitored and supported by the Office of Technology 24/7.
  2. Chromebooks that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken to the school’s media center / library as soon as possible. 
  3. District owned Chromebooks should never be taken to an outside computer service for any type of repairs or maintenance.
  4. Students should never leave their Chromebooks unattended except locked in their school locker.
  5. Students must pass our Chromebook safety and usage test of a score of 95% or higher. 
  6. Middle school students will be required to obtain 2 teacher signatures affirming the student is mature enough to check the device out for home use.
  7. Students are required to keep their device in the provided case anytime they are walking with the Chromebook outside of the classroom. (Example- hallway, bus, cafeteria, etc.)

General Precautions

  1. No food or drink should be next or near the Chromebook.
  2. Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully into Chromebooks.
  3. Chromebooks should not be used or stored near pets.
  4. Chromebooks should not be used with the power cord plugged in when the cord may cause a tripping hazard.
  5. Chromebooks and provided cases must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, and labels.  Students may clip tags to their cases, no more than 3 tags per case.
  6. Chromebooks should arrive at school fully charged and ready to be used at school year day.  (The device has a 10 hour battery life.)
  7. Heavy objects should never be placed on top of Chromebooks, the Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to heavy objects, rough treatment, some cleaning solvents, and other liquids.  The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure.
  8. Do not put pressure on the top of a Chromebook when it is closed.
  9. Do not store a Chromebook with the screen open.
  10. Do not place anything in the protective case that will press against the cover.
  11. Make sure there is nothing on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks).
  12. Only clean the screen with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or anti static cloth.

Asset Tags and Signed Student and Parent Permissions

  1. All Chromebooks will be labeled with a District asset tag.
  2. Asset tags may not be modified or tampered with in any way.
  3. The signed student and parent permission document should remain on file in the school office at all times. 

Anderson County Issued Case

  1. Each student will be issued a protective case for his/her Chromebook that should be used whenever the Chromebook is being transported or not in use.
  2. Although the cases are reinforced to help protect the Chromebooks, they are not guaranteed to prevent damage. It remains the responsibility of the student to care for and protect his/her device.
  3. Chromebooks should always be carried in the district issued case.  

Carrying Chromebooks

  1. Always transport Chromebooks with care. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action.
  2. Never lift Chromebooks by the screen.
  3. Never carry Chromebooks with the screen open.
