Parkland Digital Learning Resources - created to support parents, students, and staff
CHROMEBOOK USE DURING SUMMER: All Parkland students will retain their assigned Chromebooks over the Summer break.
Please keep your chromebook and charger safe and away from extreme temperatures. To store your chromebook for the summer, check the battery life is at 80% before shutting down. Even when a chromebook is off, its battery continues to lose charge. Do not let the battery fully discharge over the summer. This may require you to turn on your chromebook and charge it to 80% occasionally. At least one week before school resumes, 1) plug in your chromebook to a power source to fully charge the battery. 2) Connect your chromebook to WiFi. 3) Finally, restart your chromebook to perform Chrome OS updates while plugged in.
Can my student use the Chromebook during summer? Students are encouraged to use their Chromebooks over the summer to continue with learning activities and some students may have summer enrichment or summer school credit recovery that requires the Chromebook.
Will Chromebooks have certain restrictions? Yes, the same content filtering policies will remain intact on and off campus. Only district approved Chrome browser extensions will be available.
Will time limits be set on how long students can be on Chromebooks? No, the District will not be enforcing time limits on the devices.
Will Chromebooks be monitored by the school? Our content filter does generate logs of student activity but it is not actively monitored.
Will there be restrictions on Google? The same restrictions will be applied as during the school year. Access to Google Apps necessary for educational purposes will be available.
