Frequently Asked Questions:
Are safety procedures and controls in place to keep my student from accessing inappropriate sites?
Yes. The Chromebooks are configured to Monongalia County Schools settings. Therefore, no matter the WiFi connection, the same firewall settings will take effect on the Chromebooks at home. Additionally, only county-approved applications and games may be downloaded to the Chromebook. However, it is important for the parent/guardian to monitor student activity on an device. For more resources on how to monitor technology use, please visit Common Sense Media's parent resource page.
My student's sibling is also receiving a Chromebook. Can they just share a device at home?
No. As the Monongalia County Chromebook contract states, students are only to use the Chromebook that is assigned to them. Not only is the individual responsible for that one device, but the Chromebooks default to each individual student's settings.
Are students able to personalize their cases and devices?
Yes. As long as all personaliziations are removeable and do not leave damage, students may add them to their cases and devices. All items in or on the case as well as the Chromebook may not be hard (i.e. buttons, pins, hard keychains, raised stickers) as these items often cause damage to the screen upon impact. Students may not apply stickers or tape to the Chromebook since they leaeve a residue. However, computer decals or contact paper are good alternatives. On decorative items for the cases may include: badges, ribbon, string. Decorative items for Chromebooks include: removeable decals or skins that do not involve the removal or casing or keys.
My student is interested in buying accessories for the Chromebook. What model is it?
HP Chromebook 11 G5 (11.6" screen)
Adapter: AC 115/230V, 45 Watt
Please make sure that harder accessories such as USB mice, speakers, and headphones are carried sepearately, not in the Chromebook case. Any impact of these accessories on the device could cause damage.
