Scituate Public Schools are transitioning from BYOD to 1:1. In Fall 2022 we will be fully 1:1 in grades K-10, with grades 11-12 remaining BYOD. In Fall 2023 grade 11 will be added to 1:1, and in Fall 2024 we will be fully 1:1 in grades K-12.
If your student is leaving SPS you will need to return their 1:1 Chromebook or other device, and any associated chargers and peripheral devices to the school to which your student is enrolled, and email a notification of the return to email@example.com. If you leave the district without returning all school property, the district will take the necessary steps to correct the oversight, including invoicing for missing materials and devices, and withholding student records until all items are returned or paid for.

Students are expected to care for their Chromebook at all times. However, we realize that accidents do happen. If your child breaks his/her Chromebook accidentally, you will not be charged for a replacement or cost of the repair for the first two incidents. If a third incident occurs or the damage is determined to have occurred intentionally, you will be charged the cost of the repair. You will be notified in writing after a second incident that the next incident will incur a repair/replacement charge.
Students will be charged a replacement fee of $299 for a lost or stolen Chromebook.
All Chromebooks are monitored by a software system that ensures students use their Scituate Public Schools Chromebook and account for educational purposes. However, on occasion, students may encounter questionable websites. Should this happen, please contact my office at 781-545-8750x11359 and we will be happy to help you.
