This is a shot in the dark, but would anyone have an idea when ChromeOS v53 get moved from a beta to stable channel?

We started our school year on Monday and several students are having troubles logging to their GAFE account. When a student logins to a Chromebook, it starts the login process, the screen turns black, then comes on, but not logged in. When you click on drive, it prompts the user to login again. When you go into setting under people, it does not show them as logged in. It's like the account is not completing the login process. Has anyone had this problem and if so, any ideas on a fix? Thank You.
