New Responsible Use Agreement & 1:1 Insurance

On June 27th the Exeter-West Greenwich Regional School Committee revised policy 7710 Technology - Responsible Use. Originally adopted in 1997, the policy has been updated to reflect the changing landscape of how we use Technology in the classroom today. The policy is written to apply to both staff members and students. The same form is used for either. Parents will need to sign forms for students under 18 and students from 7th grade up will also sign their forms. You can find the new form here.

We are also setup to begin accepting applications for 1:1 insurance.  The insurance is very affordable at $19 for Chromebook users and $34 for iPad users with a $0 deductible.

Repairs for devices start at $49 so a single incident would cost more than the insurance. You will need to know your student's ID number to purchase insurance. Your student should know their number as they use it for their lunch number, but if you need it you can contact the helpdesk from the email address you have on file with the school. Please include your student's name and grade.
