Student Device Protection Program

Southington Public Schools (SPS) issues a Chromebook, or other appropriate device, to each student in grades K-12 as part of their instructional materials.  Devices are intended for schoolwork only, to be used in classroom and/or home use.  All devices are the property of Southington Public Schools. 

Like all instructional materials, students are expected to use SPS issued technology responsibly by keeping devices safe, secure, and in working order.  Care of all instructional material, including any device assigned to a student by Southington Public Schools, is the responsibility of the student to which they are assigned and the parent/guardian.  This includes any costs associated with damage, loss, or theft.  The document below is to communicate to both students and parents/guardians the expectations of the program.  In addition, all SPS families are offered the option of a Device Protection Program, to assist SPS families in covering costs resulting from accidental damage, loss, or theft.  

The SPS Student Device Protection Program is designed to assist students and families in covering any costs resulting from accidental damage, loss, malfunction, or theft.  Southington Public Schools reserves the right to charge repair or replacement costs for any device damage or loss caused by student negligence. 

This program is offered to students in Grades 4-12 and to students assigned an Assistive Technology device. 

The enrollment period, which at this time will cover 6/10/2022 through 8/31/2023, ends 6/30/2022.  After 6/30/2022, enrollment is subject to device inspection by an SPS Technology team member.
