Chromebook software is delivered via the Chrome Web Store. These are web-based applications that do not require installation space on a hard drive. The software originally installed on the Chromebook must remain on the Chromebook in usable condition and easily accessible at all times.
From time to time the school may add software applications for use in a particular course. This process will be automatic with virtually no impact on students. Applications that are no longer needed will automatically be removed by the school as well.
Virus Protection: Virus protection is unnecessary on the Chromebook due to the unique nature of its design.
Content Filtering: Web sites and district Google Drive activity are monitored. Content identified as inappropriate for a school environment is filtered out or quarantined.
Additional Software: Students are unable to install additional software on their Chromebook other than what has been approved by Anchorage School District.
Software Updates: In order to receive updates, the Chromebook should be shut down via the menu and restarted daily.
