Students will be provided with a CMS-owned Chromebook and charging cord for the sole purpose of completing school-related assignments. Internet access is accessible on any CMS campus or at any Charlotte Mecklenburg Library. This agreement must be reviewed by the student and the student's parent or guardian.
Please review the Chromebook Repair fees below. In addition, the student will be charged for damages to the Chromebook.
Lost Charger $21.00
Damaged Screens $48.99
Damaged Keyboards $47.99
Lost/Damaged Chromebook or Cracked Case (Total Replacement) $245.00
Known Issues with the G6 Chromebook
The G6 has known issues with the sudden onset of keys on the keyboard not functioning (this does not include missing keys).
Another issue is the sudden onset of the mousepad/trackpad not functioning.
If either of these issues arises and the Chromebook must be swapped out, the student will not be held responsible.
The student must keep up with this device and return it at the end of the school year or as directed by CMS staff. If the student does not return it, the student will be financially responsible for $245 to replace the lost device.
If the device is lost, stolen, or damaged, It is the responsibility of the student to report any issues to Mr. Vinson immediately. The student will be financially responsible for the $245 replacement fee if the device is lost or damaged beyond repair. In addition, the student must provide a police report if the device is stolen, or the student is responsible for the replacement fee.
Each device is inspected and deemed in good condition (some devices may have minor housing flaws but are still considered to be in good condition).
The CMS policies in regards to safe and acceptable use of technology are:
Students must use the computer responsibly by only visiting school-appropriate websites.
Please note filtering is applied on and off the CMS Network.
Just as with CMS-issued textbooks, students are asked to treat computers with care, including:
Never leave the Chromebook in extreme temperatures.
Never allow food or drink to be consumed near the computer.
Never attempt to repair a Chromebook without consulting authorized school personnel.
Never download unauthorized software onto the computer.
Repeated negligent care for your Chromebook could have your take-home privilege revoked.
Parents are responsible for immediately notifying a school administrator if the computer is stolen while away from school so that the school resource officer can file a police report.
Students and parents understand that the student can use only a CMS-issued Gmail account to access the Chromebook.
The CMS-issued Chromebook and charging cord will be returned before the end of the current school year or upon withdrawing/withdrawal from the school.
Repeated violations of CMS-issued Chromebooks could result in loss of take-home privilege.
This includes but is not limited to failure to bring the Chromebook to school, repeated destruction or repeated loss of Chromebook, and inappropriate technology usage.
