Are students able to change their Google log-in passwords?

No.  Students are issued a complex password for logging into Windows based computers at school and Google Apps for Education.

It is important to never share your password and always log off when finished using electronic devices.

First Day Update

We have completed our Chromebook distribution.  1195 Chromebooks were picked up leaving only five unclaimed.

All students attended an assembly today; our Chromebook 1to1 initiative was one of the topics.  Here is a quick recap.

  • The Chromebook is a tool similar to a calculator, pencil, or book.  It should be brought to school each day, fully charged.
  • Charging cords should be left at home.  Students will not be allowed to plug in their charging cords at school.  If a Chromebook is low on charge, there are charging stations in the Media Center, Cafeteria, and Resource Room.  There are also charging stations for use during PE class.  
  • Need help? Contact the IT Department.  IndyTeleData provides IT services from 30 minutes before school begins to 30 minutes after school each day.  The IT Office is Room 106 3/4, between Room 106 and Room 108.  Or simply e-mail .
  • Printers are located in the Media Center.  There is a printer for each graduation year.  Students will need to retrieve their print out before or after school as the Media Center is not available to students during the school day.
  • Can the students decorate the Chromebook?  Yes.  Do NOT cover the asset tag (Red tag on the bottom).  Decorations must be appropriate.  
  • Protective cases my be purchased from the Spirit Wear Store or elsewhere.  Replacement charger cords must be purchased from the Spirit Wear Store.
