Student / Parent Equipment Use Agreement
Brazos School for inquiry and Creativity (BSIC) is excited to provide the opportunity for our students to take home a digital device for learning. Please understand that prior to taking the learning device home, students will be instructed and evaluated on proper use and care. Students must follow the BSIC Responsible Use Guidelines. These guidelines can be found on www.brazosschool.org
Student Code of Conduct
1. Electronic files sent, received, viewed or stored anywhere in the digital device are available for review by any authorized BSIC staff for any purpose.
2. Modifying or changing device settings and /or internal or external configurations without appropriate permission is prohibited.
3. Login info will be provided by the school, no other external logins will be permissible.
4. Using obscene, threatening or disrespectful language in any electronic communication tool is prohibited.
5. Disclaimer. While BSIC uses technology protection measures to limit access to material considered harmful or inappropriate to students, it may not be possible for the District to absolutely prevent such access. Despite our best efforts and beyond the limits of filtering technology, a student may run across some material that is objectionable. BSIC has a 3-layer approach when students are using the Internet. The device is automatically routed through BSIC’s filter for appropriate content which provides the first layer. The second layer is the monitoring of an adult, and the third layer is where the student should use their digital responsibility skills when using a device.
The District makes no warranties or representations regarding the device provided and is not responsible for any damages arising from or related to use of the device, including loss of data.
Responsible Use and Care
1. The school is providing a protective case for transporting device from school to home and vise versa, case must be used at all times while transporting.
2. The device is to be treated as a valuable object. It should not be thrown, purposely dropped, or abused. It will never be placed on the roof or hood of a car, on the sidewalk or street, or imperiled in any way that may cause it to be crushed or thrown to the ground.
3. The device will never be left unattended, in the cafeteria, in the gym or any other public place.
4. The device will not be used in or near proximity of water, household chemicals, or other liquids that could damage its electronic components.
5. The device will be protected from the environment to prevent rain, snow, ice, excessive heat, and/or cold.
