Our original 3120 and 11 Chromebooks will be disabled as of April 28th and they will not be re-activated after that date. This is not the 3189 Chromebook that most people have, they are the oldest models of Chromebooks that don't flip around into a tablet.
We will be disabling the 3189 Chromebooks in the near future, as they are security risks to our network. Please keep an eye on the Tech Bytes for the date when this will occur.
As we get closer to new devices being deployed at your site, please follow the checklist below to be sure you are prepared. Failure to complete everything on this list will result in a delay in receiving your device.
Backup and move all files before the techs arrive in your classroom to replace your device.
Clear off your desk to make space for your new device, monitor, docking station, keyboard, and mouse.
Make sure you know your login credentials (email address and login password). If you don't know your username and password, please call the Help Desk at ext. 88830 or 626-396-3699 to verify your identity and have your password reset.
Have old devices ready to be picked up and let the technicians know where they are when they arrive. This includes Chromebooks, Lenovos, desktop computers, and any other old laptops that are more than two years old.
