Add Chromebooks to a Domain

At our small school we have several Chromebooks that we would like our students to use to complete their standardized testing. In order to do this they need to be put on the school domain. What is the process to put a chromebook on a domain?

Thank you!

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It appears you can do this. Try this Google Enterprise support article.

It is a wee bit trickier than joining a Windows machine to a domain.

So here is what happened -

1) I found that devices that have previously been logged into cannot be enrolled.
2) I took a couple of them and reinstalled the O/S so they would not have any accounts established
3) Then I found that I need a G Suite account to enroll so I signed up for one.
4) Once I did that I got a message that I don't have enough licenses to enroll this device. I got that on both devices.

I don't Know how much a license costs but I am pretty sure our school is not going to want to pay for 70 licenses so we can get these Chromebooks on the domain. There has to be a better way,

I looked on your behalf and what I posted is all there is, so the School will probably have to purchase licenses.
