Important Chromebook and Account Information for Seniors

Important Chromebook and Account Information for Seniors

 
Graduating seniors will have full ownership of their Chromebooks; shortly after graduation, the IT department will be removing the devices from the D86 Google admin console and the devices will function without any restrictions in place (devices will need to be restarted in order to clear the restrictions).
 
On Friday, July 31, 2020, District 86 Google accounts and email accounts for graduating seniors/non-returning students will be deactivated. After July 31, 2020 students will no longer be able to access their District 86 Google and email accounts, and the files/messages contained within will be deleted.
 
If students would like to transfer their District 86 Google Drive files to a personal Google account, they should visit the following website while logged into their school account and follow the instructions: https://takeout.google.com/transfer. Important emails should be forwarded to a personal email account as well.
 
This feature will be enabled during Graduation Week and will be available until Friday, July 31, 2020.
 
For a complete explanation of the process, please visit this support article from Google.
 
Please note: If students are using their hinsdale86.org account on any third party sites or services (i.e. College Board, Dropbox, Pandora, Twitter, etc.), students should make sure they change their contact/login information at each of those sites and services before July 31, 2020. After this date, they will no longer be able to receive notifications/log into these services.
 
To see which services have been linked to a District 86 Google account, visit the “Third-party apps with account access” and “Signing in with Google” portions of the Google Security page for your District 86 account at https://myaccount.google.com/security.
