Forced Shutdown Coming to Chromebooks

To ensure that all Chromebooks successfully receive policies and updates, the Division of Instructional and Information Technology will be forcing all Chromebooks managed by schools.nyc.gov to shut down at least once per week starting on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, outside of school hours. 

 

Forced shutdowns will occur automatically on Monday mornings at 5:00 am. Users on the device will receive a notification one hour in advance, reminding them of the impending shutdown. After the shutdown, they will be able to continue to use the device as intended.
