    • Chromebook usage is monitored 24/7. Please be aware that internet and application history is not private and can be accessed by administration at any time. Monitoring software will notify CDSD staff of inapprpriate use.
    • The Chromebook remains the property of the Central Dauphin School District at all times.
    • Even with Internet and content filtering in place, no monitoring software is perfect. Parents are asked to supervise Chromebook use during non-school hours.
    • Some cleaners can damage electronics and monitor screens. When cleaning your Chromebook, please use supplies designed for delicate electronics.
