About Chromebooks & How to Access Support

Chromebooks run the Chrome Operating System. Students log in with the NAPS Google Account and have access to all of their needed educational Apps including Google Classroom, Meet, Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Additionally, they run any content specific apps such as ST Math, Lexia, Zearn, iXL and Edpuzzle. As an Enterprise level Google Apps for Education (GAFE) district we have unlimited cloud storage on Google Drive and Chromebooks allow for easy management of student files directly to this cloud storage. We will also have access to all of the additional features Google will be adding to Google Meet over the coming weeks including, viewing up to 49 participants at one time, attendance tracking, hand raising, breakout rooms, blurred backgrounds and more teacher controls.

Technology Support

Students having trouble should access support based on their particular situation:

  • If they can log into their NAPS Google Account they should contact their teacher for support first. If they are still having trouble, they can submit a help ticket directly from their google account.
  • If they can not log in to their NAPS Google Account they can call the helpline number between the hours of 8am and 9am. 978-380-1012 This number is also on the back of each chromebook.
