ChromeBook Information and Sprint 1 Million
Student Chromebooks and Google Accounts
As a 1:1 technology school, each POB student will be assigned a CMS Chromebook to complete assignments in school and at home. Each student is expected to bring his or her CMS-issued Chromebook fully charged to school each day. We will distribute devices during lunch periods on Wednesday (8/28), Thursday (8/29), and Friday (8/30) in room 522. Students must bring a signed computer use agreement form to room 522 on one of the distribution days in order to receive a device. All students received this form in his or her homeroom class. An additional copy of the form can also be picked up in the main office or can be printed from the following link: http://bit.ly/2019pobcomputeragreementform
Students must log in to Chromebooks using his or her CMS Google Account. The district reset all Chromebook login credentials to the following:
- Username: StudentIDNumber@student.cms.k12.nc.us (Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Default Password: 8 digit birthdate (YYYYMMDD)
Once off campus, students must also log into the CMS internet filtering system to access websites on the Chromebook. A pop-up window will appear requesting the following login credentials:
- Username: StudentIDNumber@cms.k12.nc.us (Note that there is no "student" after the @ symbol)
- Password: 8 digit birthdate (YYYYMMDD)
- Tutorial Video: http://bit.ly/chromebookathome
Students can get assistance with his or her Chromebook each morning from 6:45 a.m. to 7:10 a.m. in the main office or by submitting the issue on the following form: http://bit.ly/studentchromebookissue.
