The primary purpose of the device used in our schools is to facilitate an enhanced student-centered learning environment. Providing a device for each student brings equal access to tools that support a digital learning environment. Any other use is secondary.

Care of the Device

Students are responsible for the care and safe-keeping of the device registered to them. District-owned devices that are damaged or fail to work properly must be taken immediately to the Media Center (Library) at the school. It is expected that students will care for the device in a responsible manner. Each student will use the same device throughout their educational experience in La Crosse. In the event of damage or loss, students are responsible for the cost for repair and/or replacement of the device and accessories. Voluntary insurance for the device only, is available through the school district.
