Chromebook FAQ

FAQ’s

All Red/White Track students grades 6th-12th will get issued a Chromebook starting with the upper grades and working down to 6th grade. Please see your EA for more information.
A Chromebook is a laptop running Chrome OS as its operating system. The devices are designed to be used primarily while connected to the Internet, with most applications and data residing “in the cloud“.
Students must first meet with their EA to go over all the user agreements. Once the student has reviewed the agreements with their EA they and their parents will sign the papers and then a Chromebook will be assigned to them.
Chromebooks are provided free of charge to Red/White Track students. Cost will apply if the Chromebook gets damaged or replaced. Prices for repairs vary on the incident.

At the end of the 2013/2014 school year Santa Rosa Academy introduced a Chromebook Pilot program with some Red/White Track middle school students. The students checked out the ChromeBooks from the Technology Center and were able to take the Chromebooks home to enhance their homeschooling experience at no cost to the students family.

 

Starting with the 2014/2015 school year our goal is to provide free of charge Chromebooks for all 6th-12th grade Red/White Track students to receive more engaging and more personalized instruction to enhance their learning.
