Chromebook One to One FAQ

What if the family has financial difficulties and the fee might be a burden?
If the student qualifies for a Free Lunch under State guidelines they would qualify for the same fee waivers to cover the Chromebook fee. This waiver covers all fees with the exception of CTSO dues. If the student qualifies for Reduced Lunch under State guidelines they have the option to apply to the Student Assistance Program for help with their fees.

What if the student already owns a laptop or Chromebook that they want to use daily at DACC?
As long as they bring it in and it is approved by the DACC technology staff and they are willing to bring it daily, they are welcome to use it rather than purchasing a new Chromebook from DACC.  The lab teacher would notify administration and the fee would be removed.  (Similar to the procedure we use if the student already has safety glasses). They would sign in to their mydacc.org Google account while at DACC.

What if the student has purchased or been issued a Chromebook at their homeschool and attends DACC half day?
As long as they are permitted by the home school to use the Chromebook at DACC and are willing to bring it daily, they are welcome to use it rather than purchasing a new Chromebook from DACC. The lab teacher would notify administration and the fee would be removed. They would sign in to their mydacc.org Google account while at DACC. 

What about keeping my DACC Chromebook charged?
Fully charged Chromebooks run for about 8 hours. It takes approximately 1.5 hours to fully charge a Chromebook, much less time to top-off a charge. Each Chromebook will come with its own charging cord. The best scenario will be for the student to take it home daily and charge it at night. If they chose to leave the Chromebook at school they will fit in the student lockers. They can then charge it at any electrical outlet.

What type of warranty is included?
This year the Dell Chromebooks will come with a two year warranty.  This warranty covers against manufacturer’s defects and accidental dammage.  The DACC Technology Department will provide guidence for working with the manufacturer for a repair should one be necessary.   

What happens when the student graduates?
The Chromebook is yours to keep!  These devices can be used as the student begins their college career or on the jobsite.
