It is the student’s responsibility to take appropriate precautions to prevent damage, loss and/or theft of the issued technology device (Chromebook, iPad, MacBook). Policy #815 identifies appropriate use of technology equipment.

If the issued technology device is lost or stolen, it must be reported to your building principal immediately. Theft or loss off-campus must be reported to the local police authority as well. A copy of the police report must be submitted to your principal as soon as possible. Failure to do so may result in personal liability for the replacement cost.

Parents are encouraged to check their homeowner’s or other insurance policy to determine if the equipment is covered while in their possession off-campus.
