Giddings ISD is officially Chromebook one-to-one. One-to-one refers to one computer for every student. The term one-to-one is applied to programs that provide all students in a school district with their own laptop, tablet computer, or other computing device.
There are some added administrative challenges with reaching Chromebook one-to-one status, such as password management. Along with the Technology department, teachers now have access to reset student Google/Gmail passwords. Use the Reset Google Passwords link under 'Helpful Links' to access the Google console. You can bookmark the page for easier access.
Having some trouble with a Chromebook? Try factory resetting it (aka Powerwash). Most software issues with Chromebooks can be resolved by factory reset. See Chromebook Reset under 'Helpful Links' for instructions.
