Period of Possession: The term of this Student Technology and Device Use Agreement is from the first week of school (or student start date, if later) until their last exam has been completed, as determined by RBS, unless earlier terminated by RBS or upon a student’s withdrawal from RBS, whichever is earlier. The Student or RBS may terminate this Agreement at any time by written notice. Upon termination of this Agreement, the Student must immediately surrender to RBS the assigned technology device and all accessories.
Altering or Defacing Equipment: The Student will not alter, disfigure, or cover up any numbering, lettering, or insignia displayed on the equipment provided under this agreement. The Student will not alter or remove any software, security software, or antivirus software installed on the device by RBS or add unauthorized and unlicensed applications.
Maintenance and Repair: Normal and reasonable wear and tear are expected. Negligence will not be tolerated. It is the Student’s responsibility to provide reasonable care and to coordinate required repairs through the Technology Center Help Desk. The Student and his or her parent(s)/guardian(s) are responsible for any fees charged as a result of damage or repairs.
Use: The Student agrees that the equipment will not be subjected to unnecessarily rough usage, that it will be used in accordance with its design, and that its use will conform to all applicable laws and RBS policies and regulations. The Student agrees not to allow the use of the equipment for illegal purposes or for operating the student’s own or another’s personal or commercial business. The Student will conform to the terms of this policy, the Student Handbook, and Student Code of Conduct.
Loss or Damage: A student who damages, steals, misplaces, or otherwise fails to return the equipment and/or accessories in an acceptable condition will be liable and the Student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) will be liable to the School for the leased value of the equipment and/or accessories. If the property is irreparably damaged, lost or stolen, or subject to repeated instances of abuse, the user will be responsible for replacement fee(s). Damage, loss, or theft of the property must be reported to the principal and the Technology Center by the next school day following the occurrence. The Student’s parent(s)/guardian(s) or responsible party will file a report with the local police department within 24 hours and supply the School with a copy of the police report by the next school day.
Inspection by RBS: RBS has the right at any time to request a visual inspection of the equipment and to perform periodic inventories, or to review the contents of any message, file, or software stored or maintained on the device. There is no expectation of privacy with respect to a school-issued and owned device.
Security Measures: RBS may provide additional security measures as is technically possible for devices that will be used outside the school’s network filters. This may include device security settings and/or software that may be used to manage and safeguard RBS’s electronic resources. These tools may be used to track RBS’s inventory, block questionable sites, or limit access to sites when connected to the internet outside of the RBS network.
Disclaimer: While RBS uses technology protection measures to limit access to material considered harmful or inappropriate to students, it may not be possible for the School to absolutely prevent such access. Despite our best efforts and beyond the limits of filtering technology, a student may run across areas of adult content and some material that parents/guardians might find objectionable. Moreover, the School makes no guarantee of quality of services provided and is not responsible for any claims, losses, damages, costs or other obligations arising from the use of the School’s network or the electronic device. Any charge(s) accrued to the user while using the RBS network are the responsibility of the user. Liability and responsibility for statements made by an individual user on the internet are specific to that user and do represent the views of RBS, its employees, or members of the School’s Governing Body.
Title: Title to the equipment and all accessories will at all times remain with RBS. The Student will give RBS immediate notice of any claim, levy, lien or legal process issued against the equipment. The equipment is and will remain for the term of this use agreement personal property, notwithstanding any attachment of it or part of it to real property or improvements on such real property.
Surrender of Equipment and End of Use Agreement: The Student agrees, on termination of this Student Technology and Device Use Agreement, termination of initiative assigning this equipment, the Student’s withdrawal from RBS (for any reason), or at the request of RBS, to return the equipment at the Student’s own expense, in good condition, allowing for reasonable wear and tear, and free and clear of encumbrances, to RBS. In the event the asset is not returned, the Student and his or her parent(s)/guardian(s) shall report the device as missing. After further attempts to recover or locate the device, which could include electronic surveillance and tracking of the device, the property may be declared stolen and further action can be taken by RBS to recover the equipment. The Student and his or her parent(s)/guardian(s) understand and agree that transfer of the assigned equipment to another student is not the equivalent of surrender of equipment to RBS, nor does it release the Student or his or her parent(s)/guardian(s) from responsibility for the asset.
