You will need to process a credit card payment using RevTrak. You will need to create an account if you don’t already have one.
- Take your Chromebook the Tech Center at your school. Once you have paid for your Chromebook you will need to have it deprovisioned and factory reset by the technology staff at you high school. After this has been done you will be able to log in to your Chromebook using a personal email account. Your Chromebook will no longer be monitored by District 155 and it will no longer connect to the school WiFi. Do not have your Chromebook reset until you are done with your classes and will no longer need it for any school work.
Your H: drive will be erased over the summer. If you want to hang onto anything stored there, you should move them over to your Google Drive ASAP. You can’t get access to your H: drive from outside the building, so make sure you get your data off your H: drive before you leave for the summer.
Your D155 Google account will remain active until August 1st, 2019. That should be plenty of time to move any data off of your old D155 account, and into your personal computer or cloud storage service. After August 1st, 2019, your D155 Google account will be deactivated and you will no longer have access to your data.
Click Here for a brief presentation outlining a simple method for converting and exporting data from your Google Drive. Google Docs files (Documents, Presentations, Spreadsheets, etc.) will be converted to formats compatible with Microsoft Office when downloaded. Other files stored in Drive (PDF, JPEG, AutoCAD, etc.) will not be converted, but will be exported as is. You could move these files to your personal computer and use them locally, or upload them to a personal Google account, or a Google account associated with your new educational or professional organization.
If you are looking to export Google data beyond Google Drive, take a look at the utility called Google Takeout which can be used to automate the export process from several Google services.
