Loan Period: Devices will be issued to 5th – 12th grade students at the distribution/orientation session at the beginning of the school year. The device must be returned, with the accompanying power supply and case, at the collection time at the end of the school year.

Acceptable Use: The student should comply at all times with all information communicated within this GRACE Device Acceptable Use Policy. Any failure to comply ends the student’s rights of possession effective immediately. The student will also be subject to disciplinary action. Continued student’s use will be subject to determination by the administration.

Liability: If the property is not returned or is damaged, the student is responsible for the cost of repair or the replacement value on the date of the loss. In the case of theft, a police report must be filed and provided to the technology department. If the device is lost because of negligence (as determined by the IT Department), the student is responsible for the full replacement cost of the device. Any device not returned at the end of the school year or when the student leaves GRACE, will be reported to authorities as stolen.

Repossession: If the student does not timely and fully comply with all terms of this agreement, GRACE has the right to retrieve the device at any time.

Scheduled Evaluations: Regular inspections of the device will occur. A student with a damaged device who fails to report the damage will be subject to fines and to discipline.

Device Security: Each device has two kinds of security installed and configured on it.

  • Software and Configuration Security is in place to prevent downloading or installing software, removing software, and changing system settings.
  • Internet Filtering Security automatically filters all student access to the internet both at school and at home. Reports that show when and what internet sites the student has accessed at school and at home are available for review with this filter package.
