Here are some answers responding to questions about whether or not Coginchaug students HAVE to use a Chromebook or can they use their own devices.
1) Students may bring in and use their own laptop device. However, teachers DO NOT have to allow them to use it in their class.
2) Students are highly encouraged to take the provided chromebook, because we will be able to push apps out to them that they will not be able to access on their own devices, similar to how the SBAC App is centrally deployed administered.
3) Student WILL be able to print from their Chromebooks but not from their personal devices.
4) If a student does not take the Chromebook and a teacher requires one for their class, devices will be available for borrowing from the library to be used THAT DAY ONLY and not to be taken home.
