4 4 1. OVERVIEW Beginning with the school year, all McCook Central High School students, grade 9-12, will be issued Tablet PC Computers for use as part of their educational curriculum. It is the McCook Central School District s belief that the Tablet PC Computers will help students develop skills that are critical in our 21 st century work world. These 21 st century skills include: Critical and creative thinking Problem solving skills Information and computer skills Interpersonal and self-direction skills Technology literacy Tablet PC Computers will allow students to direct their own learning and have a greater reliance on active learning strategies. Students will be able to transfer knowledge across disciplines. The increased access to technology will enhance instruction and provide more achievement opportunities for our students. Once the Tablet is issued to a student, the Tablet will stay with them for the remainder of the school year, or until they withdraw from school. Students will be responsible for bringing the Tablets to school with them, taking them home at the end of the day, and charging them for use before the next day. It is important to note that these units stay with the students 24 hours a day, and are not left unsupervised at school at any time.

6 6 3. RECEIVING YOUR TABLET Tablets will be issued each fall. Prior to the start of school, there will be a mandatory meeting for Parents and Students. They must attend this meeting prior to receiving a Tablet. Parents and Students must sign and return the Tablet Computer Protection Plan and the Student Responsibilities for Tablet Use documents before the Tablet will be issued to the student. The Tablet Computer Protection plan outlines three options for families to protect the Tablet investment for the school district. Please review the Tablet Computer Protection plan included in this handbook. Tablets will be collected at the end of each school year for maintenance, cleaning and software installations. Students will be reissued their original Tablet each year while enrolled at MCHS. 4. TAKING CARE OF YOUR TABLET Students are responsible for the general care of the Tablet they have been issued by the school. Tablets that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken to the Tech Help Room located in the Library. 4.1 General Precautions No food or drink is allowed next to your Tablet while it is in use, as per school policy. Cords, cables, and removable storage devices must be inserted carefully into the Tablet. Students should carry their Tablets with the screen latched. Do not carry it unlatched. Tablets should be put in Stand By mode before moving them to conserve battery life. Tablets must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, or labels that are not the property of the McCook Central School District. Tablets must never be left in a car or any unsupervised area. Students are responsible for keeping their Tablet s battery charged for school each day. 4.2 Carrying Tablets The protective cases provided with the Tablets have sufficient padding to protect the Tablet from normal treatment and provide a suitable means for carrying the computer within the school. The guidelines below should be followed: Tablets should always be within the protective case when carried. Some carrying cases can hold other objects (such as folders and workbooks), but these must be kept to a minimum to avoid placing too much pressure and weight on the Tablet screen. Have the screen latched facing in when carrying your tablet. The Tablet must be in Stand By mode or turned off before placing it in the carrying case.
7 7 4.3 Screen Care The Tablet screens can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen. Do not lean on the top of the Tablet when it is closed. Do not place anything near the Tablet that could put pressure on the screen. Do not place anything in the carrying case that will press against the cover. Do not place anything on the keyboard before closing the lid (e.g. pens, pencils, or disks). Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or anti-static cloth. Do not wear jewelry on the wrist or hand while using the Tablet, as these items may scratch the screen. 5. USING YOUR TABLET AT SCHOOL Tablets are intended for use at school each day. In addition to teacher expectations for Tablet use, school messages, announcements, calendars and schedules will be accessed using the Tablet computer. Students must be responsible to bring their Tablet to all classes. At the beginning of class, have your Tablet ready to use. The class will not be expected to wait for you to be ready. 5.1 Tablet Left at Home If students leave their Tablet at home, they must immediately phone a parent to bring it to school. Repeat violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action. 5.2 Tablet Undergoing Repair Depending on the reason for repair, loaner Tablets may be issued to students or students will use desktop computers located in each classroom. There are a limited supply of loaner Tablets. 5.3 Charging Your Tablet s Battery Tablets must be brought to school each day in a fully charged condition. Students need to charge their Tablets each evening. Repeat violations of this policy will result in disciplinary action according to the McCook Central Handbook. In cases where use of the Tablet has caused batteries to become discharged, students may be able to connect their computers to a power outlet in class or borrow a battery at the Tech Help Room, located in Library.
8 8 5.4 Screensavers Inappropriate media may not be used as a screensaver. Presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, alcohol, drug, and gang related symbols or pictures will result in disciplinary actions. Passwords on screensavers are not to be used. Hard drive passwords are forbidden. If used, students may be responsible for the cost of replacement hardware. 5.5 Sound Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes. 5.6 Printing Students may use printers in classrooms, the library, and computer lab with teachers permission during class or breaks. 6. MANAGING YOUR FILES & SAVING YOUR WORK 6.1 Saving to My Documents Students will be logging onto our network in order to automatically back up their work. Students will have their own user account and folder on the network with ample space to back up any school-related work. The Tablets will be set up with a My Documents folder in which students should save their work. The My Documents folder will automatically save a copy of all student documents to the high school server while they are on the high school network. When a student adds a document to the My Documents folder while working at home or away from school, that document will be copied automatically to the school server when the student logs onto the network at school. Additional folders in the My Documents folder may be created or added by the student. All student work should be stored in one of the My Documents folders. Only files stored in the My Documents folder will be automatically backed up and saved. Student work saved to a different location on the computer will not be saved to the high school server.
9 9 6.2 Saving data to Removable storage devices Students should also backup all of their work at least once each week using removable file storage. Removable memory cards may be purchased at a local retailer. The computer s 7-in-1 memory card reader will read the following types of memory cards: Secure Digital (SD) Multi-Media Card (MMC) Memory Stick CompactFlash CompactFlash II SmartMedia Microdrive devices It is the student s responsibility to ensure that work is not lost due to mechanical failure or accidental deletion. Computer malfunctions are not an acceptable excuse for failing to submit work. Non-school related material should be saved to these removable storage devices. 7. SOFTWARE ON TABLETS 7.1 Originally Installed Software The software originally installed by MCHS must remain on the Tablet in usable condition and be easily accessible at all times. The Tablet is supplied with Gateway s proprietary version of Microsoft Windows XP Tablet operating system and with additional software. Licensed software provided with all new Tablets includes: Adobe Acrobat Reader Microsoft Internet Explorer Microsoft Office Professional Edition including Word, Excel, Access, FrontPage, PowerPoint and Publisher Symmantic Anti-Virus SynchronEyes Windows Media Player Windows Movie Maker
10 10 From time to time the school may add software applications for use in a particular course. The licenses for this software require that the software be deleted from Tablets at the completion of the course. Periodic checks of Tablets will be made to ensure that students have deleted software that is no longer required in class and that the school has not exceeded its licenses. 7.2 Virus Protection The Tablet has anti-virus protection software. This software will scan the hard drive and floppy drive for known viruses on boot up. The virus software will be upgraded from the network. The school s storage server and server are also installed with virus protection software and hardware. 7.3 Additional Software It is the responsibility of individual students to be aware of additional software programs and files loaded onto their Tablet. Students are responsible for maintaining the integrity of software required for facilitating academic activities. Any additional software must be appropriate for the school environment and may not infringe on the productivity of the classroom setting. Students are responsible for ensuring that only software that is licensed to their Tablet is loaded onto their computers. Violent games and computer images containing obscene or pornographic material are banned. 7.4 Inspection Student tablets will be inspected once or twice a year to check for compliance of all policies and procedures. Students found out of compliance may be subject to a $15 re-imaging fee. The school does not accept responsibility for the loss of any student added software deleted due to a re-format or re-image. 7.5 Software Upgrades Upgrade versions of licensed software are available from time to time. Students will be instructed to upgrade their software from the school s network periodically.

16 Frequently Asked Questions 1. Can I use the Gateway M285E Tablet PC and software throughout my career at MCHS? The Tablet PC s are issued on a three year lease. Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors will use the same machine through their career at McCook Central High School. While the rapid pace of computer technology guarantees that more advanced units will be available before you graduate, your unit will be powerful enough for your classroom work throughout your career at MCHS. The available software will be usable in upper level as well as entry-level course work. Of course, just as upper level courses require different textbooks, you may need additional software as you move through the curriculum. If we renew our contract at the end of the 3 year lease, Freshmen would receive a new machine at the start of their senior year. 2. What if I already have another model or brand of Tablet computer? You will be required to use the school district issued Tablet for school purposes. This is necessary to ensure that you have a computer that gives you network capability and the ability to run the software that you will need in your courses. The McCook Central School District is also limited to provide maintenance service or assistance for only the Gateway M285E Tablet PC. For these reasons, other Tablet computers will not be used on the McCook Central School District network at school. 3. Can I have my Tablet computer this summer? No. All Tablets will be collected at the end of the school year for general maintenance, cleaning, and software installation purposes.

In addition, all Tablet PC s have a program called Synchroneyes installed on them. This monitoring software allows teachers to observe individual student computer activity in the classroom.
19 What if they bring their Tablet in for repairs and objectionable data is detected? Students are responsible for policing themselves. If a student inadvertently downloads or accesses inappropriate material, it is their responsibility to immediately report it to the classroom teacher, principal, or staff in the Tech Help Room immediately upon identification.
