Top 5: What to know for the start of the school year

1. There is no need to plug the Chromebooks in at the end of each period.

2. Students can change there own passwords this year.

3. Google Extensions are going to change our lives.

4. Single sign-on and password manager can make your life a lot easy, but leaves you vulnerable to intrusion.

5. There is going to be 1 visible network this year (eventually).

6. Students need to be encouraged to bring in there own headphones to use with Chromebooks.

Chrome Management

You all physically manage the chromebooks while I digitally manage them. There are now 75 gaming websites, Urban Dictionary and a few other sites that are blocked.


If you find something that is distracting, like Tiny Tanks, and you want it blocked, let me know and I will do want I can to do that for you.


You the wallpaper on the Chromebooks can be changed. I can put anything as the wallpaper for all the students. If you have a super important message you believe the whole student body needs to see, let me know and I can put something together for you.


Videos and games are pretty much universally blocked. If you plan on having the students use either of these, let me know so I can make sure it works. I may have the power to fix it if it does not work.


We let the Chromebooks help us manage the students productivity as much as possible.
