Hanover County Public Schools has chosen to use Chromebooks to support blended learning in our classrooms. Chromebooks were chosen for several factors including:

  • Ability to be managed from division level to ensure student online safety
  • Ability to integrate with existing systems and instructional resources
  • Quick start-up/shut-down times to protect instructional time
  • Built in virus protection to protect student data
  • Battery life (10+ hours) to ensure continuity of the instructional day
  • Durability to withstand daily use by students
  • Cost

The selected Chromebooks have been specifically manufactured for the K-12 education market. As such, the Chromebook includes durable features such as an embedded keyboard, rubberized edges, and a reinforced chassis. Approximate dimensions of the Chromebook are: Thickness 1" x Width: 12" x Depth: 8".

Family Handbook

HCPS has created a handbook for families that can serve as a quick reference guide of best practices to follow when students bring their device home. This handbook can be printed or downloaded.
