Day Loan Laptops
At James Nash State High School, students are encouraged to bring their own device (BYOd) for learning. These devices will provide students with opportunities to engage in contemporary learning activities, those that connect students with information and tools beyond the traditional classroom experience. The extent to which these devices will be used in different subjects varies; details of BYOd use for the specific subjects your student studies is located on the school website, https://goo.gl/YxjmAe , under Device use by faculty.
BYOd supports student learning at the times that suit their busy schedule best. By having 24/7 access to their own device, beyond the school day, students are empowered to manage how, when and where their learning occurs. Further information of the benefits of 1:1 learning and BYOd are detailed in the BYOd Community Information Session presentation, also located on the school website https://goo.gl/YxjmAe .
To further support families the school has redeployed some of the old NSSCF fleet to become a set of laptops available for school day only borrowing. Access to this program is not compulsory; families may choose to opt-in if they wish their student to have access to a school computer in times of BYOd repair.
Please note that these devices are not covered by warranty or insurance and if damaged full cost of repair will be met by the student/family.
These devices can be accessed by students on a daily basis, for a maximum of 10 school days, in situations where the student BYOd is in for repair and not available for use. This is a limited fleet of devices and is only available as first-in first-served. The devices will be available for issue from the Tech Room in Student Services each morning and must be returned that afternoon. There is no take home program available for these devices.
To be eligible to use a BYOd Day Loan laptop, students and parents must sign the BYOd Charter Agreement, opt-in to the JNSHS BYOd Day Loan program, and have paid the $100 security deposit against laptop damage. Students must present their school ID for scanning each time the device is borrowed.
An invoice for the $100 security deposit payment will only be issued once both agreement documents have been returned to the school. Issuing of an invoice will take a minimum of two days and the invoice will go to the student via the care class roll. This deposit may be refunded at the end of the year; the refund process can take up to five days to process.
It is important to note that these devices are not covered by the NSSCF insurance policy and full cost for repair of any damage, will be at the expense of the user.
JNSHS BYOd Day Loan program opt-in forms are available at the Tech Room in Student Services.
