This Chromebook Checkout Agreement must be signed by the student and a parent/guardian and returned before checkout. Anna ISD allows students to use District Chromebooks on or off school property. District Chromebooks are to be used as a productivity tool for school-related business, curriculum enhancement, research, and communications.
The student agrees to properly handle and care for the Chromebook while in possession of it. The student shall not attempt to damage, open, repair, or, in any way, alter any part of the Chromebook. Personalization of the Chromebook and tampering with existing identification labels/stickers is strictly prohibited and considered vandalism. The checkout includes a Chromebook and charger. Both the Chromebook and charger must be returned in the same condition you received it. If any component is damaged while in the student’s possession, users can return the Chromebook to the campus library and receive a loaner Chromebook, subject to availability.

PERSONALIZING THE CHROMEBOOK
Chromebooks must remain free of any decorative writing, drawing, stickers, paint, tape, or labels that are not the property of AISD Schools. Spot checks for compliance will be done by administration or AISD Technicians at any time.
Students may add appropriate music, photos, and videos to their Chromebook. Personalized media are subject to inspection and must follow the AISD acceptable use policy.
Chromebooks will be labeled in the manner specified by the school. Chromebooks can be identified in the following ways:
- Record of the serial number and AISD asset tag
- Individual’s Google Account username
Under no circumstances are students to modify, remove, or destroy identification labels.
STORING YOUR CHROMEBOOK
When students are not monitoring their Chromebook, they should be stored in their lockers with the lock securely fastened. Nothing should be placed on top of the Chromebook when stored in the locker. Students need to take their Chromebook home with them every night. The Chromebook is not to be stored in their lockers or anywhere else at school outside of school hours. The Chromebook should be charged fully each night at the student’s home. Chromebooks should never be stored in a vehicle.
Students are responsible for securely storing their Chromebook during extra-curricular events.
Under no circumstance should a Chromebook be stored in unsupervised areas. Unsupervised areas include the school grounds and campus, the cafeteria, unlocked classrooms, library, locker rooms, dressing rooms, hallways, bathrooms, extra-curricular bus, in a car, or any other entity that is not securely locked or in which there is no supervision.
Unsupervised Chromebooks will be confiscated by staff and taken to the Principal’s office. Disciplinary action will be taken for leaving a Chromebook in an unsupervised location.
