Attention Parents!! Sign-up for Parent Backpack

All GCSD parents are asked to sign up for Parent Backpack. It contains a wealth of information and is a one-stop shop to apply for special programs, check grades, view assignments, look at attendance, identify educational decision makers and who has custody, lunch balances, graduation progress, scores on the SAT and ACT, and other information. Now parents have the same access, and can also use Backpack to change contact and demographic information, update the list of individuals allowed to pick up their child from school, and ensure they receive important alerts and notifications from the school or district. Parents will also be able to invite others (i.e. grandparents, babysitters, etc.) to have viewing rights to their child’s information without giving them access to change any data or pick up rights. If you don't already have a Parent Backpack account, click here to set up Parent Backpack.


Student Chromebook Repair Information

Student Chromebook Repairs 

District Chromebook Information Site

Student Chromebooks that require repair can be swapped out for another device at one of our four Career Centers.

Chromebook Repairs – Face-to-Face/eLearning Students
On days that students physically attend school, students may turn in their Chromebook for repair at their school and receive a loaner device. Once repaired, the Chromebook will be returned to the school which must then be returned to the student.

On days when students participate in eLearning, students may bring Chromebooks to the nearest career center (Mon-Thu, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM) for repair and receive a loaner device. Once repaired, Chromebooks will be returned to the student’s home school and must be returned to the student in exchange for the loaner Chromebook.

Chromebook Repairs – Virtual Students
Virtual students may bring Chromebooks to the nearest career center (Mon-Thu, 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM) for repair and to receive a loaner device. Once repaired, Chromebooks will be returned to the student’s home school. The school staff will then contact the student to notify them that the Chromebook is available for pickup.
