A Chromebook is made available to students enrolled in the Nevada Joint Union High School District (NJUHSD) for educational use. Research has indicated that a 1:1 program (issuing each enrolled student an electronic device to access the Internet) increases student engagement and interest levels. Chromebooks allow access to a student-centered, anytime-anywhere, learning environment that allows them to actively create content. Empowering students with their own mobile device promotes a challenging and personalized learning process.
The Chromebook is the responsibility of the student to which it is assigned, as with all NJUHSD instructional materials. This includes costs associated with damages and loss or theft (California Education Code 48904). Students are responsible for the safe and appropriate operation of the Chromebook.
Mobile Device Contract - Expectations for the use and care of the Chromebook package (Chromebook, charger, and Chromebook bag) are found in the Mobile Device Contract.
Student Instructional Technology Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy - District devices are governed by the Student Instructional Technology Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy.
All NJUHSD student devices are actively filtered at school and at home by software to meet the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) requirement and to prevent students from accessing graphics that are (1) obscene, (2) pornographic, or (3) harmful to minors. NJUHSD retains the right to block unacceptable websites. Filtering software is not a perfect science and it may be possible for users to access inappropriate sites.
Below we offer some useful information and tips to fully utilize these mobile devices.
NJUHSD offers an optional Mobile Device Protection Plan for district owned Chromebooks and other electronic devices checked out for home use. The one-to-one device insurance policy is an optional, inexpensive solution for parents looking to insure the valuable devices put in the hands of students. This investment will enroll your child's mobile device in a program that will minimize out-of-pocket costs in the event of damage or loss. Two options are available, a one year plan for $20 or a four year plan for $70.
You can pay by cash or check at your school office or with a credit card at the MySchoolBucks link below.
