Parents of the following students must be present:

  • High School students who are new to the High School 1:1 program
  • Middle School students
  • 4th, 5th and 6th grade students

Parents of high school students who participated in the program last year do not have to attend again but all required paperwork must be signed by parent.

 

Q. I am a parent and do not get off of work until 6:00pm, do we have to be present the entire time?

Parents and students can get in line at any time during deployments.  Once your deployment process is complete, you are free to leave.

 

Q. Do students have to be there to pick up the laptops or can parents just go?

Students do not have to attend but parents will need the student's user ID.

 Free and Reduced Lunch Application are available online.

Parents are encouraged to complete the forms & pay fees online to save time.

In addition, parents must bring a current driver's license or other photo ID.

 

Q. What if a parent does not want the laptop to come home?

There is an Student Day User / Opt-Out form, but parents are encouraged to try it first. Many students will respect the laptop or tablet and accept the responsibility.

 

Q. It says a parent can opt out of the program.  How do they do that?  And what happens if they do?

If a parent does not want to allow their student to participate, the Student Day User / Opt-Out form must be completed. The link is also available on the top of this page.

If a student Opts-Out they will pick up a laptop before school and be required to turn it back in at the end of the school day before leaving the campus.

 

Q. If my child already has their own personal device, do they need this one also?

Yes, the District supplied device will still be needed.  Some of the required classroom software will only be available on the supplied device.

 

Q. I have heard parents can purchase the laptops after a student graduates, is this true?

District owned devices will not be available for students or parents to purchase, but the School Board has discussed selling older surplussed laptops to graduating Seniors.  To date this has only been in discussion but stay tuned to the School Board's website for any updates on this topic.

 

Q. Will students be required to bring the device to class everyday?

Students must bring their device to all classes, everyday unless specifically instructed not to do so by their teacher.

 

Q. What if my child forgets to bring their device to school.

Students are expected to bring their fully charged devices to school everyday. A limited number of devices may be available for checkout for the day.

 

Q. What if my child forgets to charge the battery?

A limited number of power outlets will be available in some classrooms.

 

Q. Will my child be issued the same laptop next year?

The District will make every attempt to issue the student the same laptop each year.

 

Q. Where are the terms and conditions for the electronic device located?

The terms and conditions for the devices are located in the Digital Leaning Handbook, located on the top of this page.

 

Q. How will Flagler Schools prevent access to inappropriate websites?

The laptops will include Internet content filtering software, which will limit access to inappropriate content, but there is no substitute for parental supervision when using a device to access the Internet.

 

Q. Will the parental control software be adjustable by the parents?  If not may we add your own?

Currently, the Internet filtering software will not be adjustable by parents. It is controlled by a server at the District Office. We are however working on a solution that would allow some flexibility in the filtering solution while the student is not on a school campus. 

Additional filtering software will not be able to be installed on the District laptops, but we are working to allow students to request additional approved software to be installed on the laptops.

 

Q. Can I use the issued device for things not related to school?

It is expected that use of the supplied device be directly related to the assigned student’s education.  The Digital Learning Handbook contains additional information related to appropriate use.

 

Q. Can students load software on the device?

Students have access to "Self Service" which provides the ability to add district pre-approved applications on a limited basis.

 

Q. What happens if the device is stolen?

A police report must be filed by the student or parent within 24 hours of the incident. The police report must be brought to the school principal by the next school day. If the police report is not delivered to school principal the parent will be responsible for the full replacement cost. The Digital Learning Handbook contains additional information related to devices that are stolen.
