2018 – 2019 Student Computers

Exciting news!  Student computers will be distributed to students on Friday, August 17th… and students will be permitted to take the computers home!  This a HUGE responsibility.  Students will be responsible for bringing their fully charged HP Stream safely to school every day.  Students are provided binders that can be used to transport their computers in a safe way throughout the school year.

Students will only be allowed to take computers home with these two forms completed:

o   Parent/Guardian Technology Use Responsibilities

o   Student Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Guidelines

These forms will be available at Panther Pathway to Success Night (August 14th) and in the main office on August 15th, 16th and 17th.  Students without completed forms will not be allowed to take their computers home on Friday, August 17th.

The parent/guardian is responsible for the loss, theft or damage to the device.  The district has initiated a Voluntary Device Protection Program.  The parent/guardian may enroll in the Voluntary Devise Protection Program for the 2018-2019 school year by paying a one-time, annual fee of $20 per device.  Any parent/guardian declining to participate in the Voluntary Device Protection Program shall be responsible for the actual cost of the replacement or repair of any lost, stolen or damaged device.  Participation in the Program is Voluntary.

The Voluntary Device Protection Program covers the device only, not power cords, covers, etc.  The Program does not cover damages caused by:  unexplained loss or mysterious disappearance, failure to notify police if device is stolen, intentional acts, dishonest acts, theft from an unattended vehicle, unauthorized repairs or non-timely reporting.  More detailed information is provided on the forms required to be completed by August 17th.
