  • Each student must transport devices with care and inside the issued carrying case.

The parent/guardian/student is responsible for the cost to repair and/or replace the device, case, or USB charging cable/charger if the property is:

  • lost
  • stolen

Personal Safety

  • Users should recognize that communicating on the Internet brings associated risks.
  • Users should carefully safeguard their personal information and that of others.
  • Users should never share personal information, including phone number, address, social security number, birthday, or financial information, over the Internet without parental and/or teacher permission.
  • Students should never agree to meet someone they meet online in real life.
  • If the user sees a message, comment, image, or anything else online that makes him/ her concerned for his/her personal safety, it should be brought to the attention of school personnel or a parent immediately.

Media & Games

  • Inappropriate media may not be used as backgrounds or as a profile picture. The presence of such media will result in disciplinary action.
  • School technology is not intended to be a gaming device. Students should use their devices for educational purposes only.

Using School-Issued Devices Outside of School

  • Students with a school-issued device are encouraged to use the device for educational purposes at home and other locations. Wi-Fi connection is encouraged but not mandatory. Applications can be used while not connected to the Internet.
  • All content is filtered by the CPCSC network no matter the location.
  • All expectations and policies apply to school-issued devices no matter the location.


  • There is no expectation of privacy. Students should have no expectation of confidentiality or privacy with respect to any usage of a device, regardless of whether that use is for school-related purposes or not, other than as specifically provided by law. CPCSC may, without prior notice or consent, log, supervise, access, view, monitor, and record use of a student device at any time for any reason related to the operation of the district. Teachers, school administrators, and the Technology Department may run usage reports as deemed necessary. Parents and guardians are highly recommended to continue to monitor their student’s device usage at home. Working together as a team, we can ensure that all students remain safe and are using devices to leverage the best educational experience available.
  • Students may be selected at random to provide the school-issued device for inspection. The purpose for inspection will be to check for proper care and maintenance as well as inappropriate material being carried into school.
  • CPCSC balances the educational value of online resources with any privacy concerns that they may present. On occasion, CPCSC and CPCSC staff may leverage necessary online educational resources, such as G Suite for Education, that collect basic information, such as a student’s first and last name and school-issued email address, based on the provider’s policy and practices of safeguarding such information.

Restrictions & Limitations

  • All devices have content filtering installed which will apply outside of school as well. (For example, if a student cannot access a social media site like Facebook at school, they will not be able to access it at home either.)
  • CPCSC and Five Star Technology Solutions’ personnel have the authority to run access reports for every device.

Damaged/Lost/Stolen Devices

  • Users must report any damaged, lost, or stolen devices to school authorities.
  • Users must bring damaged devices to the school’s designated area.
  • The device case distributed to students is specifically designed to protect the device. Damaged devices that are not in a district-issued case may result in becoming the financial responsibility of the student/parent.
  • Students may be responsible for the full cost of technology for intentional or malicious damage.

Chromebook Device Repair/Replacement Fee

  • CPCSC will provide device replacement coverage for $25 for the Chromebook. This will cover one repair/replacement of the device should an accident occur that damages the device.
  • If parent/guardian decline the school provided replacement plan, please contact the school office for an opt out form. Please note that if you opt out of the plan, full replacement and repair charges will be applied.
