FCPS borrowed Student Devices should be used only in conjunction with projects relating to the educational programs of FCPS. It may not be used as a personal or social device for the student.

  • The Student Device is for the assigned student's use only. Friends, family members, or other students may not use it.
  • All files should be saved in Schoology or Google Apps for Education, not on the computer hard drive.
  • Tech support is provided at the school during school hours only:
    • Students can submit a Student Help Ticket using the link in Schoology or have their teacher submit one for them (tickets can also be submitted while at home)
    • Students and families should never attempt to repair the laptop themselves or take it to a repair shop
