1:1 Device Policies

Mayfield 1:1 Agreement

The mission of the 1:1 program for the Mayfield City School District is to create a collaborative learning environment, through the utilization of district approved technology, for all members of the educational community. This environment will enable and support students and staff to implement transformative uses of technology while enhancing students’ engagement with content and promoting the development of self-directed, responsible lifelong learners and users. Students will transition from consumers of information to creative producers and owners of knowledge.

HP Chromebook

The Mayfield City School District will be supplying students in grades 9 -12 with a HP Chromebook device. This device will be the property of the district. The supplied device will provide each student access to educational materials needed for achievement during the school year. The Chromebook will allow student access to the G Suite for Education (formerly Google Apps for Education), Infinite Campus and other web-based educational tools required by the curriculum. The Chromebook is an educational tool and not intended for gaming, social media/networking or high end computing.

Ownership

The Chromebook is considered district property while the student is at school in Mayfield. Students will be able to keep their assigned device over each summer. Upon the student's graduation, the device may become the property of the student and be classified as his or her own personal device.

Important to Know

  • The life expectancy of the HP Chromebook is 4 years. It comes with a 3-year warranty. The Mayfield City School District will cover the cost of the devices first repair. After this, all repairs to the Chromebook will be at the parent’s expense.
  • Web filtering – Internet access will be filtered while the student’s Chromebook is connected to Mayfield City School District provided WIFI. Chromebooks will also have an outside policy between the hours of 3:30 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. nightly (and every weekend) while the student is off campus.
  • The following are the only categories that will be restricted during the previously mentioned timeframe: Adult Content, Alcohol and Tobacco, Illegal Drugs, Pornography, Nudity, Violence and Terrorism, and Weapons.
  • Please know that no web-filtering product is full proof or as impactful as a conversation between a student and their parent/guardian over Internet Safety and the expectations of behavior while online.
  • The Mayfield City School District and its employees will not be installing software onto a student’s Chromebook, which allows them to track or monitor a student’s actions while using the Chromebook.
  • The Mayfield City School District is not responsible for any changes that Google makes to their system. In addition, the district will evaluate and implement any options that ensure student safety and proper educational usage.
  • Students are responsible for the general care of their Chromebook. Chromebooks that are broken, damaged, or fail to work properly should be taken to the Chromebook repair class.
  • Students are responsible for bringing completely charged Chromebooks to school each day for use in their scheduled instructional periods unless otherwise specified.
