What happens to lost or stolen devices?

Campus and district staff will work to locate and retrieve lost or stolen devices that do attach to the LISD network. Devices that are stolen and have a police report will be replaced once at no additional cost to the student/family. Devices that are lost will be replaced the first time with a deductible of ½ of the replacement cost (approx $300). The second time a device is lost or stolen, students will be responsible for paying the full cost to replace the device. If the device is found during the same school year, the student will be refunded less damages.
