Chromebooks for Cadets
As a reminder, starting Spring 2021, GoGuardian will be mandatory for all Cadets. This will require families to supply their Cadets a Chromebook laptop of any make and model (new or used). Cadets will use their Chromebooks purely for academic purposes.
Other laptops and devices (i.e., Windows or Apple OS devices)) will be allowed as a privilege for personal use during personal (free) time (gaming, recreation, hobbies, etc.). Personal machines will be disallowed in the classroom, study hall, and any other academic time. Personal computer time will be designated outside of the academic hours of the day. Cadets will continue to have access to personal online pastimes such as social media, Youtube, Netflix, and gaming as long as it does not come at the expense of their progress and academic work and have the support/approval of their families.
Personal machines will continue to be subject to monitoring, reporting, and blocking as seen in previous years and the privilege to these machines may be revoked if deemed necessary. Most importantly, should it become necessary to limit a cadet’s access to technology due to poor judgment, it does not preclude access to a device critical for their academic success.
