If your school had already upgraded to v72, please ensure you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72. If your school has not upgraded to v72, you may do so at your discretion, ensuring you upgrade to this or a later dot version of 72.

  • Chrome Version 72 – Unable to Access AIR Testing Sites

    Google released a new Chrome version on Friday and AIR has identified an issue with Chrome version 72 that prevents users from accessing AIR testing sites. Google and AIR are currently working on a fix. Chromebooks on ChromeOS v71 or earlier are not affected. If you are on a version of ChromeOS earlier than 72, do not upgrade your devices to ChromeOS v72. It is also recommended that you turn off auto-updates to prevent this upgrade before a fix is identified.

    If your district has already upgraded devices to Chrome version 72, another platform will need to be used to test until a fix is released. Once the fix is released by Google and AIR confirms that this issue is resolved, we will post notification that users may upgrade to 72.
