A Chromebook’s use is maximized with Wi-Fi but students can still use many features without internet access.

Some apps may work offline and information will update the next time the device is connected to the internet.
7. What if a student forgets to charge the Chromebook?
There will be limited power outlets in the classrooms. However, teachers have additional charging stations in their classrooms that can be used after teacher approval.
8. Will students keep the Chromebook for the summer?
Chromebooks and all JSD accessories shall be returned during the final week of school so they can be checked for any service needs and prepared for use the following year. A Chromebook may be made available for students taking summer school classes that require use of the Chromebook.
