The mission of our department is to provide the best and most secure content to our end users which are our students, teachers, parents/guardians, and staff members. Our department strives to help our students and teachers by putting the correct tools in their hands and at the same time help them understand the best use for those tools. We are about teaching and learning.
Chromebooks at MPS
Students at Muskegon Public Schools have outstanding opportunities to utilize the latest technology to assist in their learning.
Chromebooks are available for all students K-12, with every high school student provided with their own Chromebook that they are able take home every day. Students are expected to bring their device to school with them each day, charged and ready to go. A monitoring and filtering system is in place when the devices are off-campus, just as when the devices are being used in the halls and classrooms at MPS.
Muskegon Middle School also has a 1:1 device-to-student ratio, but the Chromebooks do not go home. At the elementary level, each classroom has a set of Chromebooks which stays with students all day.
The Chromebook should be seen as another classroom tool just as calculators, pencils, books, and paper have been viewed in the past. It is a student learning tool, not a method of entertainment. Each student is responsible for the well-being of the device issued to them and must meet certain expectations. In addition, a Chromebook case will be provided to protect the device that students are responsible for as well. Students are strongly encouraged to transport the Chromebook in a backpack between classes, and back and forth from home each day.
Fees will be issued for broken, damaged, lost and/or stolen devices, and the MPS Chromebook Acceptable Use Agreement must be signed by both student and parent/guardian before the device is provided.
