What is the Nevada Ready 21 Project?
What is a Chromebook?
Parents, if you would like to purchase a differnet case for your child's Chromebook, click here for options.
A Chromebook runs on Chrome OS (instead of OS 10 or Windows). It is a tablet-like device that is designed to be used with the internet. Chromebooks are optimized for Google's apps, such as Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive.
Silvestri's teachers and students do not view Chromebooks as a novelty or as playtime, instead, they are utilized as an education tool just as textbooks, calculators for math classes, novels for English or reading classes.
It is essential that students bring their Chromebooks each day to school, fully charged, in the case, and free of damage.
Earbuds, pencils, pens, etc. should not be zipped into the case with the Chromebook because they can cause pressure to be placed on the screen and breakage may occur.
