When people ask me if there is something they can try when encountering an error in Google Chrome or on a Chromebook, I usually direct people to these three simple steps.

1) Refresh & Power

This will force your chromebook to reboot or "wake-up." This can be useful if your chromebook locks up or won't turn on.


2) Clear Browsing Data

This will clear any corrupted data that websites save on your device and force a fresh cache of web data.

3) Remove your Account from the Chromebook

This works for when things just aren't working like they used to. Common issues this can fix include, extremely slow chromebook, log-in errors, and more... Just sign back in from scratch after you remove your account from Chrome or the Chromebook.

It is possible for teachers to mass copy grades from Google Classroom into Skyward. It is a lengthy process that gets easier with experience. Take a look at the resources below.
