Overview

In order to support the future of our students’ learning, a committee convened to review various electronic devices to support student learning. During 2015-16 school year, many teachers were provided with carts of Chromebooks to integrate into their instruction with students. Teachers and students provided positive feedback in their experience with these devices. For the 2018-2019 year, all secondary students will be provided with a Chromebook to be used throughout the school day to support their learning with the option to be able to take them home.
 
Rationale & Cost

The devices are cost effective and can be used in numerous ways to augment the established curriculum and instruction. As the district looked at a number of options, the Chromebooks best meet students learning needs.

The value of the device is approximately $300. If your daughter/son uses proper care, especially while transporting the device, the risk of accidental damage is minimal. Replacement costs will be determined on an as needed basis not to exceed the replacement cost of the device (currently approximately $300).
 
Handling, Care, and Transport

When walking with the device, carry it carefully with the lid closed.

Cases are encouraged.

Do not leave the device unattended.

Do not place the electronic device on the ground.

Avoid having sharp objects near the device, including pens or pencils.

When closing the lid, make sure nothing is inside.

Do not eat or drink or place liquids near your device.

When picking up, pick up by the base (bottom) with both hands.

When device is not in use, keep the lid closed.

The device will come with a district provided Asset Tag sticker and device ID sticker, as well as a sticker with your name.
 
Student Responsibilities

Although the school district owns the devices and will loan them to the students as a tool to support their learning, in order for this to be successful, students do need to take responsibility for the device loaned to them (just like when checking out books from the LRC, using textbooks, and borrowing classroom supplies). Students are to follow all expectations in the District’s Acceptable Use Policy found in the D303 Handbook.

If misfortune occurs while your student has the Chromebook off of school grounds, please notify the school by leaving a voice message at the school office of your child’s school or send an email to your child’s principal. In addition, in the case of suspected theft, please immediately contact local law enforcement to file a police report. Please share a copy of the police report with your school (either via email or in person) in order for the school district to assist the police in discovering the stolen device.
