In the meantime, there are classroom devices that students are offered to use in class if needed.  Thank you for your patience. If you have questions, you can email lnelson4@wcpss.net or call the WCPSS Help Desk at 919-664-5700.

Student Device Terms and Conditions (Spanish)

 

Every student in WCPSS is being offered a Lenovo 300E Chromebook.  Every student should send in an agreement form. The student keeps the device until they leave WCPSS or when their loan period ends and a new device is issued.  Loan periods are three to four years.  Students will be notified when their loan period has ended.  

  • Notes: 
    • Parents have a right to refuse the device and provide one for their own student.
    • Students are strongly encouraged to accept the fully supported Student Device that is provided.
    • All student devices will work with district applications, including testing.
    • Personal devices need to come to school each day.
    • Personal devices will not receive tech support from the district.
    • There is no fee to participate in the Student Device Program.
    • There is no fee for the first replacement device during each loan period.
    • The district may issue a fine in certain cases when damage occurs.
    • The district may issue a fine for failure to return a Student Device when required ie. leaving WCPSS, graduation, etc. 

 

Other notes: 

  • Students should not decorate or alter the device provided by WCPSS in any way.  
  • Lenovo 300E Chromebooks issued from LRMS have one sticker on the device and one on the charger with the students name.    

 

Student devices that are not functioning because of a defect in the device will be repaired or replaced as needed. Devices that are damaged or lost will be replaced once during the device loan period. Students who experience a second incident of damage or loss will be limited to in-school use of a device only. All families will be expected to sign an agreement acknowledging this and other student expectations.
