Chromebooks 1:1 Program
GHV Junior High is excited to be in our third year of the ChromeBook 1:1 program.  Each 7th and 8th grade student will receive a ChromeBook to extend and enhance his/her education both at school and home during the 2017-2018 school year. Our goal is for students to learn that while devices (such as computers, tablets, and cell phones) can be used for communication and entertainment, they can also open doors to inspire, create, grow, explore, and learn.

The school will provide a bag, and students are required to use this bag for ChromeBooks.  Other school supplies should not be carried in the ChromeBook bag.
 
How long will a ChromeBook hold a charge?
Students should charge ChromeBooks each night and leave chargers at home. Fully charged ChromeBooks will hold a charge throughout the school day. 
 
Can students print from ChromeBooks at home or school?
No, ChromeBooks will not be set up to print.  GHV Junior High is committed to working paperless as much as possible.  Students may e-mail or share via Google drive those files they wish to print so that a teacher or parent may print for them.
