1-to-1 Laptop Program information for 2016

24/01/2016

​​For students who are moving into Year 12 in 2016, instead of having to buy a new device for the final year, the students are being offered to continue using their current 1-to-1 laptop device for a fourth year.

 

The 1-to-1 laptop devices they are currently using are now three years old, however, it seems unfair for them to have to purchase a new device, when their current ones work fine.

 

These laptops will run out of warranty between December 2015 and February 2016.

 

IT @ Benowa have deemed it necessary to follow a strict audit process whereby we have all laptops returned to the IT Department, so that all necessary repairs and system upgrades can be carried out over the December-January school holidays and then be returned to the students in an optimum condition. This would then carry the devices through to the end of 2016.

 

IT @ Benowa will maintain some reserved stock available for replacements in 2016, as ​none of these devices will be under warranty. 

 

If a student damages their laptop, then they will be given a replacement laptop from IT. However, they will still be charged the repair costs, which are as follows:

 

First incident ​- $35.00
Second incident - $70.00
Third incident - $105.00
Full repair - $190.00

 

In 2016, year levels and their IT access are as follows:

Yea​r 7 BYOX program No device contract $0.00 with no school fleet option
Year 8​ BYOX program No device contract $0.00 with no school fleet option
Year 9 BYOX program​ No device contract $0.00 with no school fleet option
Year 10 BYOX program No device contract $0.00 with no school fleet option
Year 11 1-to-1 laptop program 2nd of 3 year contract $190.00 annual fee for access to school fleet device
Year 12 1-to-1 laptop program 4th year – extended onto current devices $190.00 annual fee for access to school fleet device
