Chromebooks have become increasingly popular in the classroom due to their affordability, ease of management and use. If your school district uses Chromebooks, you understand the importance of drop protection. Due to their lower cost, Chromebooks simply aren't built as tough as many laptops and require additional reinforcement. Whether using carts or a take-home program, you need protection. That's why Higher Ground offers a variety of Chromebook cases to help safeguard your investment while making the devices more accessible and easier to use.
Founded in 2002 by innovators with a passion for education, Higher Ground has spent more than 17 years providing functional protection for laptops and tablets.

Higher Ground wants to make your job easier and more worry-free.
The primary goal of any case is to reduce the likelihood of damage to the technology, thereby avoiding the need for additional expenses and downtime. Younger students will likely benefit from work-in Chromebook cases, like the Datakeeper or Shuttle 3.0, which provide full-time protection. The Chromebook never has to leave the case, greatly reducing the opportunity for damage.
Teachers and students in high school settings tend to prefer options like the Flak Jacket, ruggedized sleeves, or backpack inserts. Users enjoy compact protection while providing quick, easy access to their device and accessories.
Higher Ground cases provide added protection to the most vulnerable points. In case of a drop, the corners are reinforced and its edges extend beyond the device in order to absorb the impact instead of the Chromebook. The front and back surfaces are also stiffened to reduce pressure points which can crack screens.
A few of the available features include:
