What Are Chromebooks?



Signing In To Your Chromebook

Every student in PTSD has a Google Account which was created by the PTSD Technology Dept. Each student will log into their Chromebook with their student Google Account. When the Chromebook is turned on in school, it automatically connects to the PTHS Wi-Fi Network. The instructions for logging into the Chromebook are as follows:

  1. In the Username window, enter studentid@pemb.org. Example, if your student id is 123654, you will enter 123654@pemb.org

  2. In the Password window, enter your password. The password is the same

password you use to log into any computer in PTSD.

The Sign-In Window looks the image below

If you forgot your password to log into your Google Account, contact your teacher & he or she will contact the PTHS Technology Dept. to get your password reset. Once the student’s password is reset, they’ll be prompted to change their password. The password will be reset to Pemberton with a capital P. The new password that the student creates must be at least8 characters long & the new password can’t be a password that was previously used. If the student never logged into their Google Account, the default password for students to log into their Google Account is Pemberton#1. The P is capitalized. The student will be prompted to change the password to something that they’ll remember. Once your password has been changed, keep your password in a safe place & DON’T share your password with anyone.

Connecting Your Chromebook to Wi-Fi at Home

When the Chromebook is turned on in school, it automatically connects to the PTHS Wi-Fi Network but when you turn on your Chromebook at home, you must connect your Chromebook to your Home Wi-Fi Network.

FAQ’S

What will the students receive with the Chromebook?

Students will receive a Chromebook, Charger, and Carrying Case. Students are expected to leave their Chromebooks in the protective case at all times. Students will provide their own earbuds/headphones. All items will be returned to the PTSD Tech Dept. at the end of the school year in June. The items that they were given at the beginning of the year are the items that MUST be handed in at the end of the year or an obligation will be issued to the student.

What if the Chromebook needs service?

Students can stop down to Tech Services in RM201 so the Chromebook can be repaired. The student will be notified when the Chromebook is repaired & the Tech Dept. will give it back to the student.

What if the device is stolen?

If your device is stolen, you must file a police report. you must report the incident to your Assistant Principal, Tech Dept. & Security. If you find your Chromebook, notify the Technology Dept., Assistant Principal, & Security ASAP.

Is the device equipped with a camera?

The Chromebooks are equipped with a camera and may be used as an educational tool only.  Students are not permitted to take pictures, video, or audio for other purposes.  The district cannot remotely activate the camera and the camera will not be used to violate the privacy of the student.

If I “forget” my Chromebook (or charger) at home can I get a “loaner” for the day?

Students are expected to have their devices in school every day and should be considered another aspect of being prepared for class just like having a pencil or a notebook.  That being said, if a student comes to RM201 requesting a “loaner” Chromebook (or charger) the student MUST sign an obligation for the full value of the “loaner” to ensure that it will be returned.  If the “loaner” item is not returned by the end of the school day the obligation will be turned into the main office.  from that point forward students will be subject to the same rules that apply to any obligation.

If I lose or break my assigned Chromebook (or any of its parts) do I have to pay for it?

Lost or Stolen Devices

Our Chromebooks are equipped with a GPS tracking software that allows us to see the last location it connected to the internet.  If a device is reported lost and is recovered no out of pocket costs are incurred by the student or their family.  If a device is lost or stolen it should immediately reported to the student’s AP office, the PTHS security office and the Tech Office (located in RM201).  If a device is not recovered we have an insurance plan with an asset recovery company (Absolute Software, Inc.) and they will reimburse our financial loss but ONLY if the device is reported as missing within 30 days of its last “checkin” with the company’s GPS system.  For this reason it is extremely important that a lost or stolen device is reported immediately.   Should a lost device NOT be reported missing in the appropriate timeframe it is left to the discretion of the administration how the student will make financial restitution.

Broken Devices

If a student causes accidental damage to the assigned Chromebook no financial penalties will be incurred and a new device will be assigned but a note will be made of the damages and how they occurred.  Consistent and/or habitual “accidental” damages may result in a student losing the privilege of having a Chromebook and having to remit some financial compensation to the school district; this will be left up to the discretion of administration on a case by case basis.

Broken or Lost Charger

If a student were to lose or break the charger that was given to them with their assigned device a new charger would be assigned but a student would receive an OBLIGATION FOR $44, the cost to replace the charger.  The obligation would be put on file with the main office.  When a student has an obligation on file they must remit payment to the main office (or show proof that they have located the lost item) to have it cleared.  Until the obligation is cleared a student may not be able to participate in certain school related activities or events such as sports, clubs or performing arts.
