DCPS-issued Technology Devices

Each student will be have a DCPS-issued Microsoft Surface this year for use at school and at home. Devices will be issued after beginning-of-year assessments are completed in mid-September.

  • Students are responsible for the care of their personal device and charger.
  • Students should not loan their device to another student.
  • Students are expected to have their school-issued device in class daily. Devices will be used during class and for assessments. 
  • At the beginning of the year, students will complete a Digital Citizenship course and learn the proper care for technology devices. Every student must have a signed Technology Agreement Form on file in the office. 

If you have questions about technology use agreements or student devices, please contact Ms. Malik.
