Chromebooks & Hapara

Students who have not completed the initial CB usage process need to begin the following process on Monday. ( 1st & 7th Period teachers- You will have to help the students remember what to do for the next few days)

1. EVERY morning before 1st period- Student needs to go to Library and go through the check-out process with Mrs. Fowler.

2. Student will be allowed to use the CB assigned to him/her while at school.

3. During 7th period the student will need to be given a hall pass to go and return the CB to the Library. (YOU the 7th period teacher will also be responsible for having student return the CB to the Library.) If you assign hw on the CB you will need to have a plan B for these students to complete on paper and given the same credit.

Thank you!!

*Hapara has been purchased thanks to the TRINITY CITY COUNCIL and Mayor Vaughn Goodwin!!!! This is a process and there are somethings that have to taken care of on the business end, and administrative end before we start using this management series.

* Mrs. Fowler & Mrs. Clinton are working hard every day and are trying to create new lessons to help teachers and students use the Chromebooks.

*I do plan to conduct Chromebook meetings with 7th period classes in about 3/4 weeks. I am trying to wait for the following: Hapara working, student issues ( Hacking, not charged, losing CBS, not doing what supposed too, etc. If you think of issues you are experiencing please let me know. I do plan on including all teachers and students in this grand adventure of learning and improving!!
