Technology must be like oxygen: 

Ubiquitous, necessary, and invisible.

Students

A device for every student. Each student is assigned a device for take-home and school use. Learning expands beyond the classroom walls, and technology makes information available when and where it's needed.

Support

If you need assistance, each site has a User Experience Support Specialist who is  available for device and application assistance. Solutions Support Specialists at the District Office can assist those harder-to-solve questions.

Applications

We are fully committed to student success. Along with Google's Education applications, the district provides free access to dozens of apps for practicing skills, being creative, and thinking critically. 

For Students

Information for Student Chromebooks

Care and Handling

Screen Care

The Chromebook screen can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment.

Cleaning your Chromebook

Clean the screen with a soft, dry antistatic, or microfiber cloth. Do not use window cleaner or any type of liquid on the Chromebook. You can also use packaged pre-moistened eyeglass lens cleaning tissues to clean the screen.

General Precautions

Charging

It is the student's responsibility to bring the Chromebook to school charged and ready to go each day. The Chromebook should be charged overnight to ensure a full charge for the following school day.

Wireless Internet Access

Union School District provides wireless Internet access at all campuses across the district. Chromebooks are configured to automatically connect to the wireless network when in range.

San Jose Public libraries provide free wireless Internet access. More information about how to access free wifi at San Jose libraries can be found here.

Comcast offers affordable Internet service through the Internet Essentials program to qualified households. More information about the program can be found here.
