An Acceptable Use Policy has been established to ensure the appropriate use of all electronic informational systems by every student and employee in the district. All students and teachers in grades 6-12 have a school issued device. Teachers have Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI) MacBook Air and an iPad Mini, students have an iPad. MLTI provides the devices for grades 7-8 and the rest are purchased with local dollars. A non-refundable annual use fee of $30 must be paid by all students grades 6-12 that are issued a device. This fee covers the cost of repairs not covered by the warranty with the exception of negligence, which will be determined by the principal. All teachers also have the option of paying the $20 user fee in the event the device needs repairs, is lost or stolen.
