Chromebooks | Sign-Up

This is Step 2 to get your Chromebook running: Sign-up

You'll need a Google Account to get started.

Even if you already have a Google Account (or a gmail account), you'll need to do these steps to get started.

  1. After the Agreement, you'll be asked to Sign into your Chromebook
    If you don't have an account, click on Create Account
    If you do have a Google Account, fill that in by Email or phone and go to step 4 below!

  2. For new accounts, you'll be asked for your First name and Last name -- and then as you click next you'll be asked to create a user name.
