Google Apps for Education (GAFE) has built-in device management via a Google Chromebook license. These licenses are purchased at the time devices are purchased. With all devices in our GAFE domain, we are able to control the applications and access for each device.

Roncalli looked at a number of 1 to 1 models before deciding on school issued Chromebooks. Equability for all of our students was a consideration. This solution was selected because it gives us the best price for performance; including the device, the warranty, and support.
