CHROMEBOOK PROGRAM FOR GRADE 5 ONWARDS

CHROMEBOOK PROGRAM FOR GRADE 5 ONWARDS

Dear Parents,

As discussed during the session on ‘BYOC – Bring Your Own Chromebook,’ we are sharing a link of the presentation and the details in regard to purchase of the Chromebook.

As parents, we are sure you have a lot of questions and concerns. To address the same, we’ve added a dedicated section on our website: Tech @ FS (http://www.fountainheadschools.org/purpose-and-decision-steps/chromebook/)

This section on the website covers the following:

  • What’s the experience like? What’s the world doing?
  • Why Chromebook?
  • Usage agreements at home & school so that the device is used effectively and not for the wrong reasons
  • What are the potential safety concerns and how we intend to address this?

NEXT STEPS:

Step 1

We request that you go through the website content that we’ve already put up before taking this step. We will try to address all your unanswered concerns in these planned interactions.

Step 2

Configuration of the Chromebook:

Chromebook Brand Acer
Model No. C732
Price 28,500
Top Case Color & Decoration Grey
Onboard processor Intel Celeron Dual Core N33500
Onboard memory(RAM) 4 GB Memory
EMMC/ISSD 16GB EMMC

HDMI Port Yes
Graphics Processor Integrated Intel HD Graphics
Video Camera Web camera

Warranty 3 Years including Accidental Damage Protection*


*
As per manufacturer’s terms and conditions

Chrome OS Management Console (perpetual license): This console will enable the school administration to configure and manage each Chromebook with ease, and will allow us to add security features (such as user restriction, app restriction) as well allow many value-added features such as making an app landing page, online testing etc. This console needs to be bought only once with every device at the price of ₹2832 inclusive of all taxes. This price is valid only for bulk educational purchases. Regular license cost is almost double the current price.

Step 3

Advance payment

We are asking for an advance payment by 10th May because in order to receive the Chromebooks in July, we need to place an order with the vendor by the second week of May. It takes 15-20 days to compile and send the order to the vendor and the delivery takes almost 6-8 weeks. After delivery, the school requires upto 15 days to test and configure all the Chromebooks before they are handed over to the students.

Sr. No. Details Advance Payment (to be made by May 10th) Total Cost
1 Acer + Chrome Management Console 15,000 31,332
2 Only Chrome Management Console (meaning parent will purchase the Chromebook) 2,832 2,832

Notes:

  • Kindly note that the school has no commercial interest in this transaction
  • Parents can buy a Chromebook on their own, if they wish to. In this case, the parents will only be buying the CMC from school. School will intimate them as to when to send the device for installation of the console.
  • Balance Payment to be made in June before the device is handed over to the student
  • The total cost mentioned above is currently based on the minimum quotation that we have received from Google resellers. In case, we get a lower quotation, we will apply, update and charge accordingly
  • School will be providing a debit note containing all the details of the purchase

Payment Details:

Click here to pay

*Last date of payment: 10th May, 2019

**If we do not receive the payment by this date then we will consider that the parent is not interested in purchasing the Chromebook through school

Step 4

In the first week of July 2019, we will arrange the handover of Chromebook to the parents. Before the students start using  Chromebook, parents and school together can ensure that the students use their device effectively rather than it becoming a distraction. We will frame essential agreements for the same.

Clarifications about School timings and Elections-related holidays

Clarifications about School timings and Elections-related holidays

Dear Parents,

This note will address two recent announcements about the change in timings and the election-related holidays.

 

1.Regarding the change in timings of the school:

We delayed the start of the PYP and SS programs by 15 min. In response to this change, we have not received any response from the vast majority of parents.

However, we have received requests from 9 students (5 parents) for a swap in timings of PYP (Grade 1 to 6) and SS (Grade 7 to 12). The reason given is that a swap of the timings will give the PYP students more time to sleep and the SS students more time in the afternoon and evening for activities and coaching classes. We have maintained through the years that the reason for starting the SS later is that as children enter into the teen years, they tend to sleep later for multiple reasons (studying, social, biological). Therefore asking them to wake up early is likely to have adverse effects of their health.

While we don’t see any significant advantage with the swap in timings, we see consequential disadvantages of an upheaval of schedule for all the students including the vast majority who have not reacted to this change as well the loss of sleep and impact the health of SS students.

Therefore, we are sticking to the change as announced. We had also proposed a change in the timings for the Early Years students pending logistics for which we ran trial routes from April 9 to 12. We are happy to announce that the trial was successful. These are the final timings for students next year:

 

New Timings from June 2019
Grades Starts Ends

Early Years*

(Nursery to Sr. KG)

08:45 am 02:00 pm

Primary Years

(Grade 1 to Grade 6)

07:30 am 02:00 pm

Senior School

(Grade 7 to Grade 12)

08:45 am 03:30 pm

*Nursery and Jr KG students will be leaving earlier in the initial period. A separate note will be sent to the relevant parents for the same.

 

2. Regarding the holidays on 22-23 April due to Lok Sabha Elections:

The holidays are as announced for 22-23 April for students. The school buses have been requisitioned by the district authorities for the conduct of elections for both days (for logistical management of the EVMs and the election staff). Therefore both days are holidays. For the PYP and Early Years, we chose not to compensate (unlike previous years) because it’s the end of the year and curriculum requirements have been met already. For SS, there’s no need to compensate because the exam schedule was changed to accommodate the 2 holidays. We are clarifying this so that the reasoning is clear and that a precedent isn’t assumed for similar future events.
