TAKING CARE OF YOUR DEVICE
Students are responsible for the general care of the device they have been issued by the school district. Devices that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken to the Media Center at the school of record.
- No food or drink is allowed next to your device while it is in use.
- Cords and cables must be inserted carefully into the device.
- Device must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, or labels that are not the property of the NRMPS.
- Device must never be left in an unlocked car or any unsupervised area.
- Students are responsible for keeping their device’s battery charged daily.
- The device should not be exposed to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight for extended periods of time.
If the assigned device isn't properly taken care of a fee of $20 per incident (this includes screens limit of 2, headphone ports etc.) will be charged for repair.
Sound, Music, Games, or Programs
- Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes.
- Non-educational Internet Games are not allowed on the Devices during school hours. NO games may be installed on the Devices at any time. All applications must be district provided. Data storage space will be available on the Device – BUT it will not be backed up in case of re-imaging. A $25 re-imaging fee will be charged to clean the games off.
The Device is the property of Nash-Rocky Mount Public School District. Students may be selected at random to provide their Devices for inspection at any time during the school year. Therefore, students should not consider their computers’ contents confidential. Teachers, administrators and/or school technicians can ask to see the Device at any time.
DEVICE ACCEPTABLE USE
The use of technology resources is a privilege, not a right. This acceptable use agreement is provided to make both students and educators aware of the responsibilities associated with efficient, ethical, and lawful use of technology resources. If you violate any of the User Terms and Conditions named in this policy, privileges may be terminated and disciplinary action could be applied. Your school’s Student Code of Conduct shall be applied to student infractions. When applicable, law enforcement agencies may be involved.
NRMPS is pleased to be able to offer access to the district computers, which provide the necessary programs required, by classes and the district. They also supply the network, which provides access to electronic mail (e-mail), and the Internet. To gain access to these resources, students and parents must sign and return the Acceptable Use form before a Device will be issued. Many responsibilities are related to the use of these technologies in the educational setting.
Parent/Guardian Responsibilities and Student Responsibilities
- Review the 2018-2019 Student/Parent Device handbook and check to make sure your student(s) understand the rules and guidelines. Remind them that they will be issued the same Device each year, so it is in their best interest to take good care of the device.
- Lost or stolen Devices should be reported immediately to the media coordinator and principal. Damage, loss, or theft of the Device will be subject to fees and/or disciplinary action.
- Under no circumstances should Devices be left in unsupervised areas. Unsupervised areas include the school grounds and campus, computer labs, break areas, unlocked classrooms, bathrooms, and hallways. Any computer left in these areas is in danger of being stolen
- Unsupervised Devices will be confiscated by staff and taken to the administrative office. Disciplinary action may be taken for leaving your Device in an unsupervised location. Each student is responsible for their Device once it has been issued.
- Reimaging may be necessary if a student forgets password to the machine. Data stored on the machine may be lost at this time, so parents should insure that their students are backing up documents on a removable storage device or through an Internet storage system.
Student Activities Prohibited

- Any attempt to “hack” into a network or program.
- Any action that violates existing Board policy or public law.
