Kaufman ISD will begin embarking on a 1:1 Chromebook take home program beginning with the start of the 2020-21 school year. Each student at Kaufman High School will receive a Chromebook to be used both at school and at home for the entire school year. At the completion of the school year, students will turn in their Chromebook where they will be cleaned, updated, and checked for necessary repairs. Students will receive the same Chromebook from year to year.

Lost/Damaged Technology

Policy

Kaufman ISD and Kaufman High School are excited that we have the opportunity to provide each student at Kaufman High School with a Chromebook, Chromebook cover, and Chromebook charger beginning in the 2020-2021 school year.  These items will help provide an opportunity for students to have access to a variety of tools and resources that will help them prepare and succeed.

In order for the district to be able to continue to provide such supportive resources for our students it is essential that these items are used and treated properly.  This includes students making sure that they are acting responsibly and taking care of the items to keep them in good working condition. The overall condition of these items are the responsibility of the student.

For this reason, the following fees will be applied in the event of a broken, lost, or inoperable Chromebook, Chromebook case, or Chromebook charger if the damage is determined to have resulted from improper use or negligence per campus technology personnel.  These fees, while they do not cover the full cost of the items, will help KISD to be able to continue to provide our students with impactful educational devices in the future.

Replacement Fees:

Broken/Lost/Inoperable Chromebook -----------------------------------------------------------$50
Broken/Lost Chromebook Case ------------------------------------------------------------------$15
Broken/Lost Chromebook Charger --------------------------------------------------------------$15

In addition, students are expected to bring their Chromebooks to school every day with a full charge. Teachers are utilizing Chromebooks in the classroom on a daily basis to help provide instruction and support for our students. If students do not bring their Chromebook to school, or fail to charge their Chromebook prior to arriving at school, disciplinary action could result and include After School Detention (ASD), Saturday School, In School Suspension (ISS), or Out of School Suspension (OSS).

Kaufman ISD and Kaufman High School are proud that our students have this incredible opportunity and appreciate your support in this matter.  *This policy will go into effect immediately*

Respectfully,
