Staffing: The seven stage laptop distribution process will require AT LEAST 13-15 staff members to maintain. District office will be providing you with at least seven support staff members (four facilitators/coaches and three I.T. support staff). The remaining staffing must be pulled from your available site support staff (i.e. PFs, ICs, PIAs, parent volunteers...etc.). Andrea Foster will be working with your P.I.A.s directly to coordinate volunteers and community support. Setting Up the LRC: You will need to make sure that there are AT LEAST seven tables set up to accommodate each of the stages of the distribution process. You will also need to consider how student traffic will most efficiently flow through each of the different stations to allow adequate space and exiting. ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○

Station 1: Student receives laptop Station 2: Student receives their contract Station 3: Power cords Station 4: Laptop Cases Station 5: I.D. labels are attached to the computer Station 6: Account verification: Students will have to plug-in to the network and enter their account information to validate their permissions.

Classroom Storage: Locking storage solutions should have been completed prior to your distribution date. ALL student laps in your class should ALWAYS be locked up whenever you leave your classroom. Student laptops should NEVER be stored in your cabinet while they are still on and running. Student CASES do not need to be locked up in the same location as student laptops. Inventory Control: Site Teacher Technology Facilitators (TTFs) will receive a full inventory list of all student computers deployed to your site. It will be the responsibility of the TTF to track the location of each of these machines throughout the year. If an individual machine is damaged or returned for example, that information must be logged and noted by the TTF on the inventory control sheet. These sheets will be signed and certified by the facilitator when student machines are inventoried at the end of the year.

Device Management Advisory/ECAPP teachers will responsible for establishing basic rules and expectations regarding laptop use in the days immediately following the roll-out. Only after students have met district expectations (as outlined in the “Digital Drivers License”) will they be permitted to remove student laptops from their classroom. ● Charging- Prior to students taking their laptops home, all charging will have to be done in class using a flat table and the power strips provided by the district. Because all laptops must be locked up before the teacher leaves for the evening, charging can only take place during the daytime hours. ● Charging Stations: All teachers must have an empty table space or flat counter top along a wall where power strips can be plugged into a wall outlet. This is where student laptops will be charged during the day. Because students will be coming and going
