SUMMER USE OF TECH
Reminder to check your email over the summer for important messages. Go to https://portal.office.com from any computer that can get on the Internet.
Please clear out all voicemail messages. Check your greeting. Does your message have instructions for the caller if they want to transfer to the operator?
GCS School Board purchases equipment so you can accomplish your job responsibilities, not for personal use.
Below are the policies, guidelines, and forms related to checking out equipment.
Check with your Technology Resource Coordinator for procedures for storage or checkout of technology equipment.
Form for checking out equipment for personal use
Policy for lending of GCS equipment is located here section 7530.
- personal use of equipment/facilities: 7530
- use of computers/networks 7540
- requests for personal use 7530
You are responsible for up to $500 should something happen to the equipment. We do not require that you show proof of insurance. You just need to know that you are responsible for it. Please be conscious of how the equipment is stored or where it is located so GCS gets the fullest amount of life out of it.
LCD projectors, cameras (digital and video), as well as other portable peripherals are easily damaged, misplaced or stolen. LCD bulbs cost over $400 to replace. These items are not available for personal use.
Acceptable Use Policy The equipment/laptop is the property of GCS. That means that the GCS policy about acceptable use applies, no matter where the equipment goes. That also means that software not owned by GCS is not to be installed.
Data/Files Be aware that your laptop/computer might be wiped clean in the summer, so you will want to backup documents to your locker or Google Drive before you leave or when you return the laptop.
