Student Access to Chromebooks - at home & school

Student Access to Chromebooks - at home & school

Rocklin Unified School District (RUSD) is committed to provide safeguards to protect student privacy, data, and personal information.  Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, all Middle and High School students will be required to bring a Chromebook to school each day.
 
With bad actors looking to gain access to and exploit user information and school networks, Rocklin Unified will be adding additional security measures and practices into place to ensure that we are safeguarding and protecting your data.  Each Chromebook that will access our network and be used at school will need to have a Google Management Console License for education installed to seamlessly work with RUSD’s network security protocols, access your students' online curriculum, and ensure that student privacy, personal information, and data is being kept secure. 
 

This can be accomplished two differnet ways:

  • Purchasing a Chromebook for each 7-12 student that can have a Google Management License installed
           Rocklin Unified will purchase licenses for all family devices that use this option.
  • Apply for a Chromebook through the ECF (Emergency Connectivity Fund) Program

What Does It Mean To Put A Google Management License on a Personal Chromebook?

Rocklin Unified School District takes the safety and security of our network and of your student's data and privacy seriously  We continue our commitment that your students are safe online while ensuring they have seamless access to our online tools and curriculum.  This is why we are moving toward a more secure online environment and requiring all Chromebooks to be enrolled under Rocklin Unified School District's Google Workspace Management console.
 
Having a personal Chromebook enrolled in our District's Management console has many benefits to families.  It ensures that devices are filtered online and access to inappropriate content is blocked both at school and at home.  Over the past two years we have heard from families how they would like to have greater insight and control over their student's device and online behavior, both at school and at home.  
 
With that need in mind, beginning in the summer of 2022-23 we are partnering with GoGuardian as our new content filter for the district.  GoGuardian not only offers superb content filtering but also provides teachers with tools to manage the online experience in the classroom including seeing and managing open tabs, the history of sites that are visited, and the ability to pause the Internet for all students.  We are also excited to provide parents with the GoGuardian ParentApp*.  This app gives parents direct access to online activity reports and filtering controls at home.  GoGuardian will also notify designated staff about online activity that indicates a risk of suicide or self-harm.
 
*This is one of the tools parents can not get without the device being enrolled in our Google Workspace Management console.
