Chromebook Program Key Points

  • Students will be assigned a Chromebook device at the beginning of the school year. 
  • The device will come in a hard protective case.
  • Devices will be kept for 3-4 years or until the student graduates.  It is the intention to have students retain their original Chromebook each year while enrolled in Grand Blanc Community Schools.*
  • Families will be able to purchase optional insurance each year to help defray the cost in the event of accidental breakage.
  • Teachers have been trained by our technology consultants (Communications by Design out of Ada, MI) in how to use the device effectively within the curriculum as one of the many tools they teach with.  Please understand that our teachers and students will learn and grow in the use of the Chromebooks in the classroom as the year progresses.
  •  

    *Students do not have a separate right to a device.  It is the District’s intention to issue the same device barring abuse, breakage, theft, etc.

Internet Options for Low Income Families


Learning can occur “Any Time, Any Place, Any Way, Any Pace,” but to continue learning in the home, high speed reliable broadband is crucial. With more devices in the hands of students, districts have shifted away from traditional approaches to homework. According to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), seven out of ten teachers assign homework that requires high speed internet access, yet in some communities as few as one in three students have home internet connectivity. When students do not have internet access at home, the gap widens in terms of what students can do. Equitable access to the internet is essential to maximize lifetime learning and success.

Families can access www.everyoneon.org to learn what internet options are available in their communities, including mobile hotspots. The website also lists information on discounted computers for qualified families as well as local technology training opportunities. In the coming year, the FCC’s Lifeline program will begin to include internet access. Information on the updated program will be forthcoming.
