What’s a Chromebook?

Chromebooks are laptop computers that run ChromeOS, an operating system developed and maintained by Google that is essentially just the Chrome web browser. Chromebooks are currently built by a number of manufacturers including: Acer, HP, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba. ChromeOS is fast (starting up in about 8 seconds), and it is very easy to maintain. Updates come directly from Google after extensive testing, and there is no need for technical staff to perform the update. Students simply restart their Chromebook when an update has been indicated and within seconds, they will be able to log back in on a completely up-to-date Chromebook.

For the 2018-2019 school year, School District 21 again selected the HP x360 11 Chromebook for its sixth and seventh grade students along with Bump Armor cases. Also, beginning 2018-2019, 3rd-5th grades are 1:1 with Chromebooks. 5th grade utilizes the HP x360 11 Chromebook model, while 3rd and 4th grades utilize the Dell 11 3120 model. Additionally, grades K-2nd have a 3:4 student to Chromebook ratio. Kindergarten utilizes the HP x360 model, while 1st and 2nd grades utilize the ASUS Flip C100 model. Elementary school devices remain at school.

For the 2019-2020 school year, School District 21 will utilize the HP x360 11 Chromebook once again for all grades K-8.  For more information on our 1:1 Chromebook expansion click here.

In addition to the Chromebook itself, each middle school student will receive a charging cord/plug that is used daily to ensure that the Chromebook is fully charged for school the next day, and a case that always stays on the Chromebook.
