This website is for parents and students who have checked out Chromebooks for use at home. Remember that Chromebooks are owned, managed and monitored by Provo City School District. Please monitor your students’ online activity as these are PCSD devices and actively monitored for CIPA compliance. Please use the Chromebook for classroom assignments and study only. Even while in use at home, internet access is filtered to keep students safe.
Chromebooks require a Provo City School District email account for login. Email addresses consist of the first letter of the student’s first and last given name and 6-digit student ID (lunch number) with a leading zero if the number is less than six digits.
Example: John Doe student number 12345 = email@example.com.
If you have forgotten your password, email tech support at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 801-373-2188

If your teacher posts a YouTube video for classroom study and the video is blocked by our filter, Please contact your teacher to have the block removed. The Learning Resource Officer at the school can also unblock it.
If you need a Chromebook app and it’s blocked, please request that it be unblocked through your teacher. Your teacher can submit a request to tech support.
Zoom is an online video-conferencing application that teachers can use to communicate with students. Don’t try to install Zoom because it’s already installed on all Chromebooks. Your teacher will send you a meeting ID before you connect.
