Chromebook Troubleshooting Tips


1. First, have the student sign out and shut down. After the Chromebook fully powers off, turn it back on and try again.

2.Check the wifi connection and verify it is connected to staff wireless access or CCSS24.

3. If it is on anything else, the student needs to see Beth Sullivan, Courtney Stillwell or Lori Mayes for assistance.


1. Check to see if their Chrome is up to date. They will see the red Sign Out button if the current version is installed. To update if needed, go to Settings --> About Chrome OS --> and click Check for and apply updates.
