Chromebook Resources

1:1 Device Initiative - Chromebook Resources and Information

Starting the 2021-2022 school year, every Hendrick Hudson student was provided with a district owned chromebook or other suitable device to use during the school day and/or at home.  All district devices will be connected to the district's highly secure WiFi network and filtered using GoGuardian in and out of district.

All students are highly encouraged to use a district device for their instructional purposes.  High school students are given the option to bring in their own device and connect to the WiFi network.  Students will be required to register their personal devices on our network before they’re allowed access to our WiFi network.  However, it is important to note that the district is unable to provide technical support for personal devices.  Students experiencing issues with WiFi are strongly encouraged to request a district provided chromebook for use during the school day.

All students and families are required to complete the Chromebook/Device Parent/Guardian & Student Responsibility Form.  An electronic version of the Chromebook/Device Parent/Guardian & Student Responsibility Form will be emailed to parents/guardians in August, if you haven't already submitted a form in the previous year.  This form must be submitted online before a chromebook can be assigned to the student.  Additionally, all students and families are expected to review and understand the following documents:

CHROMEBOOK INSURANCE:

All families are strongly encouraged to purchase insurance for their students' chromebooks.  Insurance is available at $32 per device, per year and covers accidental damage, cracked screen, liquid damage, fire, power surge, theft, vandalism, and more. The deadline to purchase insurance coverage is September 30, 2023.  The insurance does not provide coverage for lost and damaged chromebook batteries.  For more information regarding insurance, please review the Worth Ave Insurance flyer (Spanish).  To enroll, click here.

Damages reported for uninsured devices will be billed to the parent/guardian.  Until the amount is paid, the student will have to check-out a device from the building/library for daily in-school instructional use only; students will not be able to take the device home until the amount is paid.  Approximate replacement part cost at the current rate (June 2022) are: $35 - Dell Battery, $160 - Touch-Screen Digitizer Module, $30 - LCD Panel, $85 - Frame Replacement, and $350 - Chromebook Replacement.

Chromebook Assignment by Grade

  • Students in grades K-5 will be assigned to a chromebook during the first two weeks of school.  Grade 5 students will receive a new device which will remain with them until grade 8.
  • Students in grades 6-8 will use their device assigned to them from previous school year. Students will keep the same device until grade 8.
  • Students in grade 9 -12 will use their device assigned to them from previous school year.  Grade 9 students received a new device at the end of the school year.  Students will keep the same device until grade 12.

If a student forgot the school email password, it can be reset by going to Classlink.  

Any issues or concerns with a chromebook can be addressed by submitting a Help Desk Ticket.
