Can I install my apps?
School computers are to be used as tools for accessing curriculums and facilitating student learning. Any unrelated applications, such as games, are NOT to be installed on school computers, per the Parent-Student Information Technology Acceptable Use Policy agreement. Failure to comply may affect the performance and expose student computers to security breaches (malware, viruses, spyware).

Admin username and password details are located on the “Tech Quick Start Guide” that came with the device.
Can I add my own password?
You are welcome to change the password for your student’s Google and Microsoft Accounts. Please note that these are two separate accounts - changing the password for one does not change the password for the other. Please do not change the default password of the local Student account.
Does the computer come with Microsoft Office?
Yes. All school computers ship with Microsoft Office preinstalled.
Where can I order ink?
Ink orders are placed on the Enrichment Ordering System as a product.
