Chromebooks

1 to 1Dear Crete-Monee 201-U Parent/Guardian,

This fall Crete-Monee School District 201U will distribute a Chromebook with a case to each Crete-Monee Middle School and Crete-Monee High School student. The Chromebook will be for instructional purposes both at school and at home.

Access to school and district technology devices, software, shared files, email, and other electronic networks will enable all students to fully participate in required instructional activities. We know our students will benefit academically as they learn and collaborate with their teachers and peers.

Students will utilize electronic resources under the supervision of faculty and staff and with the expectation that they act in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct, the Acceptable Use Policy, and related guidelines. While the District provides internet filtering, filters do not offer 100% protection from accessing inappropriate sites. Some material accessible via electronic networks might contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate, or potentially offensive to some people.

We ask that you review the Crete-Monee 201U Chromebook Handbook with your child so everyone understands the expectations students should follow when using electronic resources. Access to electronic learning resources requires responsibility.

Responsibility also includes taking care of the district-issue Chromebook. Damage to devices can be costly. As such, the District is excited to offer parents/guardians the option to purchase insurance at an annual cost of $20. This related cost must be paid before or at the time the student receives the Chromebook. There will not be an option to purchase insurance at a later date. If you choose to not purchase the insurance, a waiver must be signed and on file at the school. The form needed to purchase insurance or waive insurance is included in the CM201-U Chromebook Handbook and is also included with this letter. If you would like to purchase insurance before distribution day, please call (708) 367-8300. Otherwise, insurance can be purchased on your child's distribution date.
