Chromebook Tips: Care and Maintenance

Students are responsible for the care of the Chromebook they have been issued by the school. If the Chromebook needs serviced, please deliver to your building’s librarian. Filling out a service ticket will help speed up the repair process. The librarian will check your Chromebook in and check out a spare Chromebook for you. The spare is to be used while repairs are being performed by the Technology Department.  Do not take district owned Chromebooks to an outside computer service for any type of repairs or maintenance.


Chromebooks are assigned to students for 4 years, First Grade, Fifth Grade and Ninth Grade will receive a new Chromebook that will be theirs for 4 years. Please observe the following guidelines to ensure that your Chromebook will stay in good condition for 4 years.


  • Please do not carry your Chromebook by the screen. Screens can easily crack when lifted by a corner.
  • Please do not place stickers or drawing on the Chromebook itself. Vents CANNOT be covered.
  • Please do not remove or tamper with Avon Lake City School District Asset tag.
  • Please do not leave your Chromebook in a car. Exposure to extreme heat or cold may damage the Chromebook.
  • Please do not place books or other objects on top of or against the Chromebook that could put pressure on the screen.
  • Please clean the screen with a soft cloth. Only use a water dampened towel to clean your screen or the cover of the Chromebook.  Cleaning solvents can damage the screen.
