Responsibilities

The One to World Learning initiative is a partnership between the La Porte Community School Corporation and our high school families. As part of this initiative, LPHS students will receive a corporation-owned chromebook to be used by the student throughout their high school careers.  This document lists basic responsibilities and requirements for the use and care of this device.

  • It is the responsibility of the student and parents/guardians to exercise reasonable care of the device at all times.
  • Students are expected to bring their device with them to school every day, ready to use, fully charged, and in the provided chromebook case.
  • If the family moves away from the district, the student must return the device, charging brick, and cables to La Porte High School. The carrying case does not have to be returned.
  • Since the device is owned by the Corporation, all repairs and/or replacements must be completed by the school corporation.
  • Confidentiality of information, data, images, and messages on a district-owned device should NOT be assumed. Users have no expectation of privacy with materials or content created, received, sent, viewed, or accessed on the device.
  • The device is intended for use only by the student for school-related/educational purposes.
  • Student use of the device must comply with all requirements of District policies, procedures, and the student discipline code, regardless of where or when the student uses the device.
  • The device is filtered per requirements of CIPA.  Even so, filters are never 100% safe. It is the sole responsibility of the parents/guardians to supervise student use of the device outside of school hours.
  • Use of this device and the Corporation network is a privilege, not a right. LPCSC may revoke a student’s privilege to use a device and related services at any time.
  • Students must always treat the device with care to ensure it remains a learning tool throughout high school. While devices experience normal wear through daily use, students are ultimately responsible for handling the device with care, carrying it in a case at all times, charging it fully for each day, and ensuring safe storage when not in use.
  • Students will be required to turn in their assigned device prior to summer break. The device will be re-issued upon the start of the following school year. Students must keep their chromebook carrying cases over the summer and should bring them when the device is re-issued.
