Chromebook Policy 

The Lake Placid Central School district is 1:1 with Chromebooks in grade 3-12. At the beginning of each school year, students will receive a chrome book and charger.  These devices will be collected back at the end of each school year to be cleaned and serviced. Freshman will be given a brand new Chromebook at the beginning of the school year which will follow them through the four years they are in school. They will still hand in the Chromebook at the end of the school year to be cleaned and serviced. Upon graduation, seniors will have the option to buy their chrome book for $50.00. 

Students Responsibilities
Students are responsible for their Chromebook and charger. They have a responsibility to have their device everyday fully charged and ready to go. If a student forgets their device, they will be able to sign out a loner from the library that has to be returned at the end of the day.

The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure. Do not put pressure on the top of a Chromebook when it is closed. Do not store a Chromebook with the screen open. Do not place anything in the protective case that will press against the cover. Make sure there is nothing on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks).
