Mobile Computer Lab Guidelines:

  • Reserve mobile lab carts through the media center.
  • Carts and keys can be picked up after 7:05 am and must be returned by 2:10 pm. (Avoid heavy hall
    traffic.) A pair of students can transport the carts.
  • Carts and keys must be returned EACH DAY to the media center, even if a mobile lab is reserved for
    multiple days.
  • Mobile labs will not be distributed for use with a substitute teacher.
  • Plug in the cart, turn on the power switch on the side of the cart, and press the power button on the
    inside right-hand corner of the cart. (Carts A, B, G, and H do not have an interior power button.)
  • The teacher should distribute equipment. Use a class roster with teacher’s name, date, and block to
    record the number of the Chromebook assigned to each student
  • Do not permit students to eat or drink while working with Chromebooks
  • Monitor student use of Chromebooks and check for damage before returning equipment to carts. Any
    damage found, or any equipment not functioning properly, should be reported to the media center.
  • All Chromebooks must be accounted for prior to dismissing students from class. Be sure to lock the
    Chromebooks in the cart when not in use!
  • Chromebooks should be shut down, returned to the cart in number order, and plugged in properly to
    ensure the batteries charge for the next day.
