Important information regarding Chromebooks
In order to support a more personalized approach to learning, Fayette County Schools provides devices to elementary, middle and high school students. Like a textbook, the device is a resource to support learning. Students with devices are required to follow the guidelines contained within the FCBOE Student Code of Conduct for Secondary Students. The Code of Conduct has the Chromebook User Agreement included this year (found here).
A few things to remember:
- On pages 29-31 of the Code of Conduct the "Chromebook Responsible Use" parameters can be found as well as within the Chromebook User Agreement (link found above). Please note that by signing the Secondary Parent/Guardian Signature Page 2019-20 (required for all students at the beginning of the school year), you are agreeing to the terms and conditions that govern the acceptance of a Chromebook for your student.
- Insurance is available from a third party, the Worth Avenue Group, and can be found here. The deadline for purchasing insurance for the 2019-20 school year is Monday, Sept. 2, 2019.
- Students who transfer, withdraw, are expelled or terminate enrollment at the school for any reason must return their device on the date of withdrawal/termination.
- Students who are not assigned a personal device will have access to a school-owned device to be used only at school.
- All district-issued devices are the property of the Fayette County Public School District. If a device is damaged, lost or stolen during the time that it is issued to the student, whether intentionally or due to negligence, the student and the student's parent/guardian will be responsible for paying the fines outlined in the Code of Conduct.
We are no longer a BYOT school. Every student is expected to use a school device for work during the school day.
