New Technology Equipment Q&A

2018-2019 School Year will start off with a lot of new technology for teachers and students!

Troubleshooting Tips:
The laptop may need to be restarted several times in order to "work" correctly. As policies are pushed out remotely to the machines, it may take a few rounds of restarting the laptop to ensure that everything has been pushed through.

Will TimeClock be on the new laptops?

TimeClock is not on the new laptops at this time. Once the equipment has gone out to all campuses and the project is finalized, the software will be pushed out remotely by Technology.

What will be done with returned equipment?

The equipment will be inspected by Technology technicians and if deemed reusable, it must be reimaged. After it has been reimaged it will be repurposed.

Will my students receive iPads or laptops?

Pre-K through 2nd Grade will have student iPads

3rd - 12th Grade will have student laptops in their classrooms

Pre-determined Core-Content Classrooms will receive the new charging storage units with 12 (elementary) or 15 (secondary) laptops to keep in their respective classrooms.

Can I have a desktop and a laptop for teacher use?

Teachers will only be issued laptops. New laptops include the following: docking station, monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
