Oak Harbor Public Schools is proud to issue one Chromebook for each student in our K-12 programs at the beginning of the school year thanks to the generous and continued support of the community through local levies.
Connect Your Chromebook to Wi-Fi

Troubleshooting Connection Issues
If your Chrome device is unable to connect to the Internet and complete the setup process, make sure the network you’re connected to is properly set up and able to access the Internet. If troubles persist, try connecting your device to a different network.
If you experience issues with your Chromebook not responding, try powering the Chromebook off and turning it back on.
Go to www.Gmail.com.
The format for student Google accounts is
First 5 letters of the students Last Name
First 3 letters of the students First Name
3 Digits starting with 000 that increment to prevent duplication.
For example , John Smith would be: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the last name or first name is shorter than the designated length above, we will shorten the email address/login accordingly.
For example, Jo Ager would be: email@example.com
Initial passwords are emailed to the parents/guardians upon enrollment.
Information Services is able to offer limited remote support for issues with your Chromebook and can not guarantee the availability of support throughout school breaks. If you are experiencing issues that are not resolved by these steps, please contact 360-279-5589.
As more students interact digitally–with content, one another, and various communities–the concept of digital citizenship becomes increasingly important. Our goal is to create a community of learners who understand how to use digital resources effectively, efficiently and responsibly. With proper guidance from teachers and parents, our students can make the Internet a better place for sharing and learning.
Digital citizenship is appropriate and responsible behavior with regard to technology use. We provide instruction in digital citizenship for students and encourage them to participate in related classroom discussions. As part of our ongoing efforts to maintain a safe technology environment, Oak Harbor Schools have adopted the following Electronic Resources and Internet Safety Policy:
Digital Citizenship at Home
Google Apps for Education
All students are provided a Google Apps for Education (GAFE) account. This allows students, faculty, and staff to communicate, store files and collaborate on documents, spreadsheets, and presentations from school, work, or home within a secure online environment.
Students agree to the following responsibilities before, during, and after school whether they are on or off-campus.
The parent or guardian agrees to monitor student use at home, and away from school. The best way to keep students safe and on-task is to have a parent or guardian present and involved.
To clean your Chromebook use a disinfecting wipe or spray cleaner onto a cloth and wipe the surfaces. Do Not Use Bleach on the Chromebook screen. Do not spray the Chromebook directly with cleaner.

The district realizes that accidents can happen. In an effort to minimize expenses to the school district and families, the grid below explains the potential costs to families in the event of damage or theft of a student device.
