Digital Educator-Repairs and Replacements
Digital Educator Budget will NOT pay for:
If a Digital Educator causes damage to a DEP computer that is not covered under the warranty, the digital educator or their school will be responsible for the cost of the repairs.
OPTION: The school may decide to trade a usable laptop from the school inventory and keep the damaged one for the district replacement in future years.
Digital Educator Computers-Ownership
A Digital Educator will be able to keep possession of his/her Digital Educator purchased laptop if:
However, if a Digital Educator has a computer that was purchased with school funds:
Each school replaces the DEP computer with their district rotation money and that computer becomes part of the school inventory and should be designated as a DEP computer.
A consistent naming for DEP computers is: School Abbreviation-DEP-Username. For Example: MMS-DEP-KMMcMonagle.
If the Digital Educator leaves the district, it is returned to the DEP program inventory.
However, if the teacher leaves for another DCSD school and the computer was purchased with Digi Ed funds, the teacher is allowed to take the computer and it should be renamed and included as a DEP designated computer for the new school.
If a DEP leaves the district and the computer is a DEP funded laptop, that computer will become part of the school inventory. The Digital Educator should turn their computer into their CRT. The CRT should inform Kiffany Lychock that the computer was turned in. School sponsored laptops should always be returned to the building to become part of the inventory if that person leaves the school.
