Chromebooks & Technology

Chromebook Checkout:

  • Make sure you have registered your child for the 2021-2022 school year!  Double-check your campus portal.  Please visit our registration page for more information about how to register your child if you have not already done so.

  • CLICK HERE to Submit the 2021-2022 GJHS Chromebook Guidelines Agreement.  This is the only form you will need to turn in, and it is only available on our website.  There is no paper form.  Students cannot receive their Chromebook until this form is submitted by a parent or guardian!

  • Families must pay a $30.00 technology fee before students can receive their Chromebook. (May be paid in person or on the webstore)

  • Chromebooks will be checked out to students beginning the first week of school in their English classes.

  • Students may not use personal computers or chromebooks on campus, due to the fact that we are not able to support, troubleshoot, monitor, nor secure personal electronic devices on campus.
  • Students must provide their own protective case or padded binder to transport their Chromebook to and from school and to each class throughout the school day. CCSD Chromebooks are 8.25" X 12"  Examples are pictured below UPDATE: Students may now transport their Chromebooks in backpacks as well!

How to add your CCSD Google account on a personal computer

  • Surprisingly, it is not as easy as it seems to add a Google profile to Chrome.  This video shows you how to add your CCSD Google account to Chrome so that you won't have problems turning in coursework or accessing websites or applications that you will need for school.

What is my username?

  • Your username for AD, Canvas, Campus Portal, and Google are all the same this year.  They will all be the same as your Google username, like this: christia.123456

  • If you do not know your username, or if you have forgotten your username, you can look it up here: Forgot Username
