Decatur County Schools use instructional technology as one way of enhancing our mission to teach the skills, knowledge and behaviors students will need as responsible citizens in a global community. The Decatur County School System utilizes DCBOE student accounts, DCBOE devices, the DCBOE electronic network as well as the option of utilizing a personal device on our guest network. When using DCBOE issued accounts, network, and/or devices, students are expected to follow the Use of Electronic Devices by Students Board Policy Descriptor Code: JCDAF. Technology discipline offenses will be addressed as outlined in the Discipline Procedures for Technology Infractions and the misuse of technology may result in the restricted use of DCBOE and/or personal devices while on school grounds.
Chromebooks are issued by DCBOE to all classrooms in the system and utilized by students during instructional time. Students assume the risk of damage to school issued chrome books if the device is damaged or lost during student use. Depending upon the extent which the Chromebook is damaged, the repair/replacement cost will vary between $50.00 and $250.00. The school where the student is enrolled will provide a billing description prior to the Chromebook being repaired/replaced.
