Technology Support Update (Please Read)

Please see Marshall’s email below regarding technology issues, particularly involving student password troubleshooting:

Following are some common issues that students are experiencing in the use of their Chromebooks. 

All of them are simple to address and can be done in the classroom by the student:

  1. Computer won’t turn on (likely issue is that it is not charged).
    • Have the student plug their Chromebook in for 5 minutes and see if it will turn on.
    • Verify that the cord is plugged in correctly
  2. Computer is not functioning properly (Chromebook needs to be restarted)
    • Hold the power button down for 15-20 seconds to fully shut the machine down.
    • Restart the Chromebook.
  3. Setting/Resetting the Password on the Chromebook
  4. Skyward Password Reset

If you would like to reset a student password, follow these directions:

  1. Reset Secondary Student Password

In the event that the above do not resolve the problem consider the following:

  1. Call 7034 to see if Angie Lantagne is available to help the student in room #34.
  2. Email Angie Lantagne with the student’s name so she can follow up with them when she is available.
  3. Do not send students to room 34 without connecting with Angie first.
 

Forgotten chargers/Chromebooks:

If a student forgets to bring them, we do not have any extra to offer. They will have to work with paper and pencil. 
  • If you notice a student without their device for multiple days please ask them where it is.
  • Send an email to Angie to follow up if it continues to be forgotten.

For teacher technology issues, please submit a remedy force ticket to IT
