For Chromebook service or repair:

Students requiring support or repair to their Chromebook device should first notify a teacher, who will refer them to the library to create a service request, and if necessary, obtain a loaner device. 

Parents are a critical partner in our 1:World initiative. It is important to the district's faculty and staff that families have the opportunity to learn about the thinking behind this instruction, and the importance that 21st Century Skills play in sufficiently preparing our students for college, career, and life opportunities that lie ahead of them.

To learn about Crestview's 1:World initiative please attend one of our parent meetings (seasonally scheduled), view the orientation presentation video, or arrange to meet with one of our 1:World administrative team

Take-home Option

Families are given the option to allow students to take home their assigned device on a daily basis. Before a device will be released to go home, three things must take place:

  1. Families must participate in one face-to-face or video orientation
  2. Sign and return a Care and Insurance agreement for each child
  3. Submit payment for the device insurance premium. This can be paid either directly to the school office or online.

A Chromebook laptop device is assigned to each 6th-12th grade student as part of our district’s 1:World initiative. Here are some things we’d like you to know:

  • This device is assigned to you for school use throughout your school day. 
  • You are encouraged to use it for class work whenever appropriate.

Your responsibilities

There are certain responsibilities that you have as a student at Crestview Locals Schools. You are expected to:

  • Make sure that the device is charged and ready for use at the beginning of each school day.
  • Protect your device by carrying it safely, storing it safely, and making sure that you don’t leave it sitting in places where it may be damaged, stepped on, water-damaged, or stolen.
  • Use this device for academic purposes.

Your obligations

As a responsible student, you have an obligation to:

  • Stay on task with the use of your device
  • Respect teachers’ instructions regarding the use of your device
  • Never access inappropriate materials on the internet
  • Never using your machine to harass, threaten, embarrass, or bully others
  • Use your machine only in ways that comply with our district’s rules (Acceptable Use Policy) for technology use and the school handbook
  • Pay for replacement or repair if the device is lost, stolen, or intentionally damaged

Email and other accounts

Crestview School District has provided you with a district-owned Google Apps for Education Account. This should be your primary account for school-related work and communication. Please understand that, much like your locker, the school has the right to access this account at any time. There is no expectation of privacy for any activity conducted using the school’s network or accounts.

At-home Use

Before a student will be permitted to take a computer home, each of the follow has to occur:

  • A parent or guardian must meet with the Building Principal or Director of Instructional Technology or view the Parent Orientation materials
  • A parent or guardian must sign an Insurance Agreement form
  • An insurance payment must be received

If you take a device off-campus without permission, you are responsible to pay for all repairs to the device for any reason, including replacement. You may also receive disciplinary consequences.

Cases

A protective case is strongly recommended. You may purchase one on your own or at the school office.

Online Safety is an important shared concern for both school and families. The handling of connected technology devices such as computers, tablets, smart phones, and mobile phones can do much to affect student safety.

Crestview-owned student devices are issued with filtering software set-up on the machine to assist parents in helping to guide their child's online usage by blocking certain categories of web content. 
These simple tips can be helpful in managing student-used devices.

  1. Ensure that devices are used in "public" areas of the home. Families are a child's best filter. It is important to be present both for accountability as well as being available to answer questions that may arise from unexpected or inappropriate online experiences. Bedrooms should be considered off-limits for connected devices.
  2. Have a designated overnight place for connected devices. School-aged children are not always good at self-regulating their device usage. Help your student get a good night's rest by storing cell-phones, computers, and other devices in a designated area other than where the child sleeps. This can help avoid late-night texting, all-night gaming sessions, and other unwanted situations you are not available to monitor.

Monitoring your child's online behavior is your responsibility as a parent, but it doesn't necessarily have to be intrusive to be effective. Be involved with your child and you will be well-positioned to be a constructive part of their online development.
