Insurance for Chromebooks - SIGN UP BY NOV  5th

Renew or signup for insurance.  Click here for Insurance information. Why sign up?  Chromebooks cost between $250 and $300 dollars. We just had a student spill liquid on his computer and that resulted in a $265 repair bill.  Insurance provide peace of mind.   Students who are assigned Chromebooks and are allowed to take them home have the option to purchase insurance that protects against breakage and loss.  The cost for this insurance is in the $20 to $35 range and is made available at the beginning of the school year and again in October when some previously purchased insurance expires.   Parents will receive an email when these purchase windows are open

Technology in College Preparation  

 With Union Colony's focus on college preparation we provide the basic technology required for success in this age of technology.  All of our students have access to an assigned Chromebook setup specifically to provide what is needed for their classes.                        Students Using Chromebooks

A word about Online Safety

Student safety and security are at the forefront in the devices we provide.  We can contracted with Securly to provide filtered contend, monitor student activity and to provide teachers the ability to see what the students are doing on their Chromebooks in class whether that is remote or in person.  Being able to monitor student activity allows our teachers to send out a URL to all students at once, highlight a single Chromebook to showcase a students work or provide assessments at once.  But, for all we strive to do, we recognize that there is no substitute for parent involvement in the proper use of technology.  Students, young ones especially, need parental supervision while they are learning to be responsible digital citizens. Simple decisions like students doing their online work in the presence of adults helps keep our students safe.
