Chromebooks are modified computers of sorts. Rather than having a full operating system and storage system, Chromebooks utilize the Google Chrome web browser and are essentially and internet only device. Through apps and extensions, most of the programs and services you already use are also available, including Google Apps Suite. Additionally, sharing between users is quick and easy as users simply sign in with their Google account with the ability to interchange between devices simply by signing in and out of devices.
The Price WHAT YOU WILL PAY
Free! At Tualatin High School, all Language Arts & Social Studies teachers have classroom sets with Science and Math teachers joining for the 2018-2019 school year. Beginning for the 2019-2020 school year students will check out a Chromebook at the beginning of the year, similar to a textbook, and keep the assigned device for the year and their career at TuHS. This will be provided to students free of charge and fees.
The Process ENROLLING STUDENTS
Upon registering for classes with TTSD, students are automatically enrolled in the Google Apps Suite. To use the Chromebook, both staff and students simply log in to the device with their TTSD Google Account information.
