All district-owned Chromebooks are fully covered for damage or malfunction. Loss, theft, and intentional damage are not covered. Any damage or malfunction should be reported to the student's home room teacher as soon as possible. Loaner devices will be provided while damaged Chromebooks are out for factory repair.
Technology use is everywhere in our world today. The Thomaston Board of Education believes schools should play a role in teaching students to use technology appropriately. Rather than banning the devices the Thomaston Public School District’s students use in their daily lives, the same devices they will soon come to rely on in their future professional lives, it is important to guide them in developing the skills needed to be productive digital citizens by bringing their own technology to campus. Accordingly, access to the District’s wireless network, including the Internet, by students via personal electronic devices shall be made available to students for instructional purposes.
