BCS Tech Notes

 

 

 

 

TEXTBOOKS

All textbooks are in a PDF format and provided to the student on his or her device. This allows access to books with or without the internet. If a book “disappears by itself”, all teachers are capable of quickly issuing a replacement copy. Students equipped with a Chromebook will also notice that their books are on their personal cloud storage known as “Google Drive.” This means that any books assigned to students can be quickly recovered from their Google Drive. We ask that no additional copies of these files be made, as they are for use only on the student’s assigned device.

 

STUDENT E-MAIL ACCOUNTS

Chromebooks:

Chromebooks require a Google account to use the device. (e.g. This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). However, these accounts, though hosted by Google, are completely managed by the I.T. Administrator at Bethel Christian Schools. This means every student with a Chromebook is provided with a specified E-Mail and Password. 

 

WEBSITE AND APP CONTENT

On Campus, we block “undesirable” websites on the networks available to the students. Furthermore, all Chromebooks are equipped with content filtering through Google and Go Guardian. This essentially filters out anything that is inappropriate. However, no content filtering is perfect and will sometimes not only block things that we want, but will allow things we do not want. If you have any questions, concerns, or desire a stricter approach to your student’s access, let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.

Remember if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the I.T. department by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or by calling 951-359-1123.
