Chromebook Insurance Information 

WASD partnered with Worth Avenue Group at the start of the school year offering insurance on district issued Chromebooks to cover damages which aren't covered under warranty.  Due to the overwhelming amount of Chromebooks being returned damaged and with the return of students to school, we worked with Worth Avenue Group to establish an updated policy which will cover student Chromebooks until the end of the 2022 school year.  We're recommending this policy to cover against damages to district issued equipment.  The new Chromebooks primarily distributed to Grades 4-12 are covered under a 1yr warranty through HP but it doesn't cover damages.  Any Chromebooks distributed to Grades K-3 and part of 4 are older and this policy will cover those as well. 
At the end of the year, some of the older Chromebooks (mostly Kindergarten) will be collected and anyone who purchases a policy can keep the policy and the district will work with Worth Avenue Group to adjust the serial number associated with any replacement Chromebook.  When purchasing the policy, the only information you need to provide will be the Serial# located on the bottom of the Chromebook.  The new Chromebooks are labeled with a Device Name (WASD25-????) and the Serial# as a barcode on the bottom.  If you have any questions or concerns, you can email techsupport@wyomingarea.org.  Information on the policy and link to order is listed below.  The deadline to purchase is April 16, 2021.

Google/Chromebook Update

We've been getting reports lately on students having difficulty connecting to Google Meetings.  A device reset normally fixes these issues.  After booting the Chromebook, press the REFRESH (arrow) and POWER button and the device will reset itself.  After reboot, login and check your Google Classroom Meet links.  If there are still issues, please report to techsupport@wyomingarea.org and provide your device name which is labeled on the underside of the Chromebook.  We can lookup the device by inventory too.  The IT Department can remotely reset these devices back to a full factory reset.  This normally fixes issues with the device too.

If you have any account issues or concerns, please email techsupport@wyomingarea.org.  The IT Department is working daily with Registration and each building to ensure that all newly enrolled students have Google accounts created.  Information on login pattern and Google Classroom tutorials are available on the STUDENTS link from the district website or direct as follows...
