USING YOUR DEVICE AT SCHOOL

Your devices are intended for use at school each day. In addition to teacher expectations for device use, textbooks, school messages, announcements, calendars and schedules will be accessed using the computer. Students must be responsible to bring their device and power adapter to all classes, unless specifically advised not to do so by their teacher.

3.1 Devices Left at Home

If students leave their device at home, they may be able to use a loaner device provided by the Library. Repeat violations will result in losing take-home privileges of the device.

3.2 Devices Undergoing Repair

Loaner devices may be issued to students when they leave their devices for repair at the technology office.

3.3 Charging Your Device’s Battery

Devices must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition. Students need to charge their devices each evening. Repeat violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action. The power adapter must accompany the computer.

In cases where use of the device has caused batteries to become discharged, students may be able to connect their computers to a power outlet in class or at one of the portable charging stations. Loaner devices must be returned to the library by the end of the school day.

3.4 Screensavers

  • Inappropriate media may not be used as a screensaver.
  • Presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, alcohol, drug, gang related symbols or pictures will result in disciplinary actions.
  • Passwords on screensavers are not to be used.
  • Hard drive passwords are forbidden. If used, students may be responsible for the cost of replacement hardware.

3.5 Desktop

Desktops are subject to the same restrictions as screensavers.

3.6 Sound

Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes.

3.7 Printing

Students may use printers in classrooms and computer lab with teachers’ permission during class or breaks.
