  • Plano‌ ‌ISD‌ ‌Chromebook‌ ‌At‌ ‌Home‌ ‌Guidelines‌‌ ‌

    Plano‌ ‌ISD‌ ‌‌offers‌ ‌many‌ ‌digital‌ ‌tools‌ ‌to‌ ‌support‌ ‌learning‌ ‌and‌ ‌we‌ ‌are‌ ‌happy‌ ‌to‌ ‌provide‌ ‌a‌ Chromebook‌ ‌to‌ ‌access‌ ‌these‌ ‌resources‌ ‌from‌ ‌a‌ ‌location‌ ‌outside‌ ‌of‌ ‌school.‌ ‌While‌ ‌digital‌ ‌tools‌ ‌may‌ ‌vary‌ ‌from‌ ‌campus‌ ‌to‌ ‌campus‌ ‌and‌ ‌class‌ ‌to‌ ‌class,‌ ‌all‌ ‌students‌ ‌will‌ ‌find‌ ‌a‌ ‌collection‌ ‌of‌ ‌curated‌ ‌online‌ ‌materials‌ ‌after‌ ‌logging‌ ‌into‌ ‌their‌ ‌devices.‌ ‌In‌ ‌most‌ ‌cases,‌ ‌Chromebooks‌ ‌will‌ ‌automatically‌ ‌open‌ ‌Webdesk--a‌ ‌site‌ ‌that‌ ‌provides‌ ‌one-click‌ ‌access‌ ‌to‌ ‌digital‌ ‌textbooks,‌ ‌productivity‌ ‌tools‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌web-based‌ ‌resources.‌ ‌If‌ ‌Webdesk‌ ‌doesn’t‌ 
     automatically‌ ‌launch‌ ‌after‌ ‌login,‌ ‌students‌ ‌should‌ ‌navigate‌ ‌to‌ ‌‌http://webdesk.pisd.edu‌ and‌ ‌use‌ ‌their‌ ‌normal‌ ‌PISD‌ ‌Network‌ ‌ID‌ ‌and‌ ‌password‌ ‌to‌ ‌login.‌ 
      
    Please‌ ‌‌do‌‌ ‌use‌ ‌the‌ ‌Chromebook‌ ‌to:‌ 
    Access‌ ‌online‌ ‌textbooks‌ ‌and‌ ‌other‌ ‌educational‌ ‌content‌ 
    Explore‌ ‌creativity‌ ‌and‌ ‌productivity‌ ‌tools‌ ‌(e.g.‌ ‌Adobe‌ ‌Spark,‌ ‌Google‌ ‌Apps,‌ ‌etc.)‌ 
    Launch‌ ‌educational‌ ‌games‌ ‌and‌ ‌simulations‌ 
    Navigate‌ ‌library‌ ‌collections‌ ‌(reference‌ ‌materials,‌ ‌eBooks,‌ ‌databases)‌ 
    Watch‌ ‌instructional‌ ‌videos‌ 
    Communicate‌ ‌with‌ ‌teachers‌ 
    Follow‌ ‌Acceptable‌ ‌Use‌ ‌Guidelines‌ ‌‌https://www.pisd.edu/domain/9611‌ 
     
    Please‌ ‌‌do‌ ‌not‌:‌ 
    Expose‌ ‌Chromebooks‌ ‌to‌ ‌extreme‌ ‌temperatures‌ ‌(avoid‌ ‌igloos,‌ ‌volcanos,‌ ‌‌hot‌ ‌cars‌)‌ 
    Leave‌ ‌Chromebooks‌ ‌unattended‌ ‌(see‌ ‌examples‌ ‌above)‌ 
    Drop‌ ‌Chromebooks‌ ‌from‌ ‌high‌ ‌elevations‌ ‌(hot‌ ‌air‌ ‌balloons,‌ ‌‌countertops‌)‌ 
    Visit‌ ‌web‌ ‌and‌ ‌social‌ ‌media‌ ‌sites‌ ‌that‌ ‌don’t‌ ‌serve‌ ‌a‌ ‌direct‌ ‌educational‌ ‌purpose‌ 
     
    Need‌ ‌Help‌ ‌Connecting‌ ‌your‌ ‌Chromebook‌ ‌to‌ ‌Wi-Fi?‌ 
    Turn‌ ‌on‌ ‌Wi-Fi‌ 
    At‌ ‌the‌ ‌bottom‌ ‌right,‌ ‌select‌ ‌the‌ ‌time.‌ 
    Select‌ ‌Not‌ ‌Connected‌ ‌
    Note:‌ ‌If‌ ‌you‌ ‌see‌ ‌your‌ ‌Wi-Fi‌ ‌network‌ ‌name‌ ‌and‌ ‌a‌ ‌signal‌ ‌strength,‌ ‌your‌ ‌Chromebook‌ ‌is‌ already‌ ‌connected‌ ‌to‌ ‌Wi-Fi.‌ 
    Turn‌ ‌on‌ ‌Wi-Fi.‌  
    Your‌ ‌Chromebook‌ ‌will‌ ‌automatically‌ ‌look‌ ‌for‌ ‌available‌ ‌networks‌ ‌and‌ ‌show‌ ‌them‌ ‌to‌ ‌you‌ ‌in‌ a‌ ‌list.‌ 
    Pick‌ ‌a‌ ‌network‌ ‌and‌ ‌connect‌ 
    If‌ ‌your‌ ‌Chromebook(s)‌ ‌become‌ ‌inoperable‌ ‌for‌ ‌any‌ ‌reason,‌ ‌please‌ ‌notify‌ ‌the‌ ‌Help‌ ‌Desk‌ ‌to‌ schedule‌ ‌a‌ ‌time‌ ‌to‌ ‌return‌ ‌and‌ ‌pick‌ ‌up‌ ‌a‌ ‌replacement.‌ ‌‌helpdesk@pisd.edu‌

  • Family Resources

    This week PISD launched a Family Resource page on the district’s website. This page provides a searchable list that families, community members and school staff can utilize to help find community resources in order to meet a family’s needs. The list is searchable by agency name, zip code and category. Categories include such areas as basic needs (food assistance, housing assistance), health care (medical, dental, vision), and mental health (substance abuse, counseling, etc.). Links to the site will be available on the district webpage as well. The family resource page can be found at  https://www.pisd.edu/familyresources
