1:1 Chromebook Program

The Lynnfield Public Schools continues its commitment to focus on the integration of technology into the curriculum to support improved student achievement. As a result, students in grades 5-8 are assigned a Chromebook. This will align our district with the 21st Century learning expectations. It will also allow our students access to real-time resources for research, collaboration, productivity, and study across all disciplines.

Overview

Students in grades 5-8 are required to use a school-issued Chromebook while students in grades 9-12 have the option to use a school-issued device or their own device. High School students may use the form below to return their current school-issued device or decline receiving a school-issued device.

LPS Chromebook Assignment Form

Regardless if they have school-issued or personal devices, all students and their parents/guardians will be required to review/complete the LPS Chromebook Assignment Form indicating their adherence to the new Responsible Use Policy and their choice of accepting, declining or returning a school-issued device (LHS students only). High School students may use this form to return their school-issued device that they no longer use at any time during the school year. If you choose to accept or keep a school-issued device, you MUST also indicate adherence to the updated 1:1 Device Guidelines. No Chromebook will be issued to any student who has not completed this form.

Chromebook Repairs

If a Chromebook needs repair, students or their parent/guardian will need to put in a tech ticket to tech-support@lynnfield.k12.ma.us. Once we receive the ticket, we will make arrangements to swap the broken Chromebook for a replacement, which will now be considered the student’s Chromebook. Once fixed, the original Chromebook will be returned to our inventory. This email may also be used to report other student tech issues, such as password resets or issues with Google accounts.

Payment

This year, we will implement payment for damaged or lost items as follows:

  • If a charger is lost, students will be charged $25 or students may buy an appropriate replacement charger (see Chargers for Chromebooks)

  • If a device is lost or stolen or damaged beyond usability, the student’s parent/guardian is responsible for purchasing the same model Chromebook or paying full-cost for a replacement.

  • If a device is physically damaged the student’s parent/guardian is responsible for paying the damage fee of $100.

Chromebook Loaners

Based on necessity, both LMS and LHS will have Chromebooks that can be loaned out for a day in the event that a student’s Chromebook is not charged or needs repair. No chargers will be given out as loaners. Day loaners are available in the LMS main office and LHS Media Center. Loaners must be returned at the end of the school day, unless prior arrangements have been made.
