When your Chromebook goes home with you overnight, it is expected that you will return with it to school the next day:
Secured in the carrying case
Ready to be used in class
Chromebooks are to be used for educational purposes only.
There will be no expectation of privacy. Lewiston High School will be monitoring how you use your Chromebooks. This includes web sites visited, duration of visits, software/apps downloaded, etc.
You are expected to use this resource appropriately. A Chromebook may be used only by the student to whom it is assigned. Parents are not permitted to use their children’s Chromebooks.
Students should never share their passwords with anyone.
Each Friday during the school year, all students attend a D.A. period. This is when the faculty perform the weekly Chromebook welfare checks, where students can report any problems they are encountering with their Chromebooks (hardware/software issues, physical damage, missing chargers or carrying cases, etc.). Any student that does not bring his/her Chromebook into D.A. checks for two or more consecutive weeks will have their Chromebook remotely disabled, and possibly taken away for two weeks.
Your teenage children are not only consuming all types of media across the Internet; they are actively creating it, by uploading, downloading, texting, posting to social media, using apps, playing online games, and participating in the virtual world. With these activities come risk and potential consequences.
Being a good digital citizen requires that your child practice Internet safety; this means trusting their “gut” by knowing when certain behaviors online begin to cross the line from appropriate to inappropriate. This also means thinking twice before posting anything to the Internet that could be considered questionable. One thing we want your child to always keep in mind is that in most cases, everything that is posted to the Internet does not simply go away, or disappear. It will still be accessible, years later, and could potentially be an embarrassment to your child, or the people they know.
Questions Your Teens Need to Ask Themselves:
Do I treat others online with the same respect I would treat them in person?
Would my parents be disappointed in me if they examined my online behavior?
Does my online behavior accurately reflect who I am away from the computer?
Could my online behavior affect my future college enrollment and/or employment opportunities?
How could my online behavior affect my current and future personal relationships?
