Use of Student Learning Device
Susie King Taylor Community School is providing students with a learning device to support the continuation of teaching and learning through online software and Internet resources.

Student’s/Parent’s Responsibilities:

  • The Learning Device is provided for the student only. Student ID and password is required to access the device.

  • The student is required to practice good digital citizenship and adhere to the attached Student Technology Agreement

  • Student/Parent agrees to use the device for learning during the period of assignment, protect the device, maintain it, and promptly return the device (including power cable) when requested.

  • The Learning Device will remain checked out to the student until it is returned to the issuing school. This means that the record will follow the student until the equipment has been returned in the same condition that it is issued (reasonable wear is expected).

  • If a student has borrowed technology from the school they are expected to participate fully in the online curriculum or arrange immediate pick-up of the device. 

  • If the device is stolen, you are required to file a police report and notify the school.

  • If the device is lost, stolen, or damaged, you are responsible for repairs or replacement (current retail value is about $250.00/device).
