Students are responsible for taking this computers with them from class to class during the day and home with them after school. In addition to the Chromebook, students received a charger so that they may keep their Chromebook charged and ready for school each day.


In addition to the Chromebook and charger will/may use:

  • headphones (on school supply list)

  • USB mouse - wired or wireless (optional)

  • Chromebook case


Chromebook/Google Apps Login Information


Each student has been given a username and password that they will use to login to their Chromebook AND all Google Apps for Education.


Username:

The student’s school username (usually first initial + last name) @sd12.org.

For example, if George Washington went to RMS, his username would likely be gwashington@sd12.org


Password:

Add “gs” at the beginning of the student’s school password.

For example, if your school password was 234567, then your Chromebook password would be gs234567.
