Chromebook Highlights and FAQ’s 

2020-2021 School Year

 

Highlights/Changes

  • 8-12 Grades:  1-1 devices provided for each student

  • 6-7 Grades:  Chromebook will be checked out to students at the start of the school year and used by only that student on a daily basis.  Students will go to their 7th-hour class before their 1st-hour bell rings and retrieve their Chromebook.    Students will have the Chromebook until the 7th hour and they will check it in at the end of the day.  

  • 1-5th Chromebooks will be assigned to students in class and used by only that student all year.  Students will be held responsible for any damage to the Chromebook during the school year.  

  • Insurance Plan B (Co-Pay):  (Available for students in 6th-7th Grade) Initial Cost: $20.00.  This insurance must be paid for during the enrollment process.  If or when students damage/break their class assigned Chromebook they will need to pay a $10 copay to get it fixed and $10 copay every time that their device needs to be repaired, up to the amount of replacing the device which would be $300. At that time the student will be considered to have met their “deductible”. If insurance Plan B is not taken the student will have to pay the full amount of each repair. 

  • Insurance Plan C (Co-Pay): (Available for students in 1st-5th) Initial Cost: $10.00.  This insurance must be paid for during the enrollment process.  If or when students damage/break their class assigned Chromebook they will need to pay a $10 copay to get it fixed and $10 copay every time that their device needs to be repaired, up to the amount of replacing the device which would be $300. At that time the student will be considered to have met their “deductible”. If insurance Plan B is not taken the student will have to pay the full amount of each repair. 

  • Chromebook Periodic Welfare Check:  Every 9 weeks a Chromebook check will be done to all student devices to assess for damage that needs to be addressed.  Students who need Chromebook repairs will be called to the Library to begin the repair process.

  • CV App:  Available in both the Apple and Android App stores, by searching Caney Valley Schools, this is the one-stop resource for school information.  Use it to access e-funds for paying lunch bills online and to receive notifications/alerts that are sent from the district. 

FAQ’s

  1. Can my student bring his/her own device instead of using a school-issued Chromebook?  No.  Ensuring equity in access and the safety of all students is a high priority.  The Chromebooks are managed by the district and allow us to monitor and restrict access to devices.

  2. Can the district monitor my student through the camera that is installed on the student Chromebook?  No.  Students may be asked to record or document their work utilizing the camera for submission to their teacher, however, no one else can turn the camera on.

  3. Can I purchase insurance later in the year?  No.  All insurance must be purchased when the Chromebook is received by the student.

  4. How can I pay for insurance?  Cash, Check or with E-funds

  5. How do I register for E-funds?  On the Caney Valley Website, under the Resources heading, select E-Funds.  You will need your student’s six-digit id found on their class schedule.  Create an account and follow the directions for paying the insurance and/or lunch bills.
