1:1 Technology Initiative

WBCCSC has 1:1 technology for students in grades 5-12. Each student in grades 5-12 is issued a Windows laptop with access to the Office 365 Suite and Canvas learning management system. 

Parent Laptop Agreement

During summer registration, parents/guardians will be required to sign off on a laptop agreement confirming they have read the above policies and understand the financial responsibilities assumed with the laptop.  This consent form will be available in Harmony as part of online registration. 

Device Care

Students (and parents) should care for the devices as if they are their own.  Accidents do happens.  Many repairs can be conducted in house, and parents will only be charged for necessary parts purchased at reasonable prices.  If an outside vendor must be used for repair, the parents will be billed the cost of the repair.  Parents will be responsible for the cost of replacement if the device or its components are lost, stolen or damaged due to improper care or neglect.  Parents are welcome to find a company to purchase insurance if they so choose.  Please insure the device for the full replacement cost of $475.
