• Student Technology Equipment Checkout Guidelines

    Plano Independent School District (PISD) may provide learning devices and/or WiFi hotspots (technology equipment) to students enrolled in its schools. The District understands the need for students to have access to adequate technology resources on and off campus. While no deposit is required, the District expects all technology equipment to be returned in good working condition. Furthermore, as the District prepares for possible school closures due to COVID-19 or other related matters, we are hereby providing relevant notification, instructions, procedures, policies, and processes. These guidelines are part of our effort to ensure that all students have the instructional materials they need to fully participate in academic programming and to ensure public resources are effectively maintained.

    Students and their parents/guardians are reminded that the use of PISD Technology is a privilege and not a right. Actions taken or materials accessed on any PISD-owned computer, network, or electronic communication device may be monitored by school authorities. It is the expectation that students will bring any Device/Chromebook to school each day charged and ready to use.

    Technology equipment that is used inappropriately, lost, damaged, or defaced may result in limited or banned computer use, disciplinary consequences, removal from courses, loss of credit, receiving a failing grade, legal action, and/or assessed fees consistent with Policy CMD (Legal)
