CCA’s Chromebook program was started in 2016 as the result of the generous gift of a donor combined with CCA-provided matching funds. Through the collection of annual Technology Fees, the Chromebook program is structured so that devices will be replaced at the end of their four-year useful life. This ensures a sustainable program while also remaining current with advances in technology . Chromebooks are assigned on a 1-to-1 basis for all students in grades 5 through 12. Students in Kindergarten through grade 4 use Chromebooks through a shared cart system, with the devices rotating through the classrooms.
Each Chromebook is specially equipped for education with important tools and safety features:
~ GoGuardian, software which provides a complete Chromebook management solution, keeping students safer online “24/7”, while at school and away, through filtering and monitoring. GoGuardian also provides teacher support by assisting in classroom management and instruction.
~ Insurance that includes coverage for accidental damage, theft, fire, flood, natural disasters, power surge and vandalism, as well as mechanical failure/mechanical defects.
~ A CCA-logoed hard shell cover to help protect against scratches and accidental damages.
Physical care including safe use and storage of the Chromebook is the responsibility of each student assigned a 1-to-1 device. Damage and/or misuse will result in fines.
The Digital Technology Code of Ethics is a document to be reviewed and signed at the beginning of each year by parents & students in grades 5 through 12.
