Laptop/iPad Protection Guidelines

 

The following guidelines are provided to help keep your laptop/iPad in good repair.  If you need further information or assistance, please contact your school technology team for support.

  • When you are not using your laptop/iPad, use a reasonable measure of protection to create a barrier that protects your laptop/iPad, such as a locking cable, locked file drawer, etc.  Develop the habit to keep your laptop/iPad in a locked drawer, a locked classroom, or with you.  Actions that keep your laptop/iPad safe work best when they are habits.
  • Report any loss or damage of the laptop/iPad or peripherals immediately to your technology team.
  • If you are transporting the laptop/iPad in your vehicle, keep it out of sight or in the trunk to prevent theft.
  • According to the acceptance agreement, each teacher is responsible for all parts of the laptop/iPad, including peripheral equipment (mouse, cables, power adaptors, etc.)
  • When asked to return your laptop/iPad to your technology team for repairs or maintenance, do so immediately.
  • Take care not to expose the laptop/iPad to extreme temperatures.  The liquid material in the screen can both freeze and boil, so keeping the laptop in your vehicle for extended periods of time during harsh weather is not a good idea.
  • Avoid eating or drinking near the computer/iPad, as food can damage the keyboard and the electronics directly under the keyboard.
  • Do not install unapproved software on the laptop/iPad.  Your TST and/or LSTC will work with you to identify software that has been reviewed for instructional purposes by your system Curriculum Director and technically evaluated by the technology team.  This will prevent unwanted viruses on your laptop/iPad and the system network.
  • The laptop/iPad has been issued to you for your professional use.  Should you allow another school employee to use your computer/iPad, make sure that you have logged completely out, so an unauthorized user cannot access sensitive data.  Remember all student information is confidential and covered by the Code of Ethics.
  • You are required to change your network password(s) when you receive the laptop/iPad.  Do NOT share your passwords with anyone.
  • If you need to connect to the Internet outside the school network, your technology team members may have to help you with setting this up.
