We have implemented a small feature change to allow domain auto-complete for students logging in to Chromebooks. Rather than having to enter their a full Google account and domain (i.e., firstname.lastname@example.org), students now have the option of entering just their network username (without @icstudents.org) to log in to student Chromebooks.
Students who enter the full domain name will still be able to log in as normal, and staff who are logging in to Chromebooks will still need to enter their full @iowacityschools.org username.
In order to begin piloting Chromebook management options in advance of a 1:1 Chromebook initiative, the district is now limiting logins to icstudents.org and iowacityschools.org domains.
This will still allow students and staff to log in to district-owned Chromebooks, and users do not need to change their processes for doing so. It prevents, however, users from logging in with @gmail.com addresses, or with domains associated with other organizations. By enforcing this policy, we can be sure that users are subject to appropriate content filtering (per federal law), and that application deployments and other services are consistently available.
