The new form might look more complicated, but it should be much easier and more accurate than the old one.

  • Select the School
  • Put the cursor in the "Student First Name" field
  • Scan the Chromebooks QR code using the new blue scanner
    • The rest of the Fields should be filled in automatically
    • If a QR code is not available, please enter at least the Student's name and ID
  • Select the problem(s)
    • NEW Option to check if the student for sure should be charged for repair
    • NEW Option to check if the student is leaving or otherwise returning the CB for good
  • Enter Loaner number if needed
  • Click submit
That's it! If you would like a slightly more in depth walkthrough click here for a video guide.
