All Things Chromebook!

Chromebook News

We are rolling out a Chrome Book Initiative this year, whereby each child in Grades 3-8 will be receiving a District Issued computer. Grades 7 & 8 will be able to take them home.  The other grades will be using them in school. Insurance is $19.50 for grades 3-6 and $25 for grades 7 & 8. This cost is a one-time cost for the year. You will also be required to purchase a case for the computer through your "Pay-for-It" account for $15.  The "Pay-for-It" application is where you would purchase schools lunches. PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE A "Pay-for-It" ACCOUNT YOU WILL NEED TO CREATE ONE. You will need your student's Local ID number which was sent home with their Agenda Books and is also available on the OnCourse Connect Parent Portal.

Before your child/children can receive their Chromebook there are several things that you need to do.  The steps and links are below.

Little Ferry Chromebooks" site and use the link for "District Policies & Procedures" where you should r
ead the "Chromebook Policy Handbook" and related references.

STEP 2 -- Purchase Insurance: Purchase Chromebook Insurance by going to the Worth Ave Group Insurance website at https://gpo.worthavegroup.com/gpo/littleferry (this will be a yearly renewal).
