IMPORTANT GUIDELINES FOR ANSWERING YOUR CHALLENGE QUESTIONS
In order to sign in to a Chromebook, a new user must first claim their account. In order to facilitate this action, ITS has deployed a Kiosk App to the Apps Drawer of all managed Chromebooks. Simply open the CPS Claim Accounts App and follow the instructions above. Once your account has been claimed, turn off the Chromebook by holding the power button for 5 seconds. When it reboots, you will be able to sign in to the Chromebook.
