Education is the Foundation

We commit to providing innovative public education environments for students, their parents and teachers by empowering them to collaboratively create learning opportunities which will develop responsible and contributing members of society.

Families may use their Instructional Funds to purchase technology which supports student learning. Because of the wide variety of options available, the school does not provide tech support for student technology. If there is a technical problem and the product is out of warranty, Instructional Funds may be used for repairs made by one of the school’s computer service vendors. For damage done beyond normal wear and tear, the family must pay to fix or replace the technology.

Additional hardware may only be purchased for school owned computers and may not be used for personally owned pieces of technology.

Ownership - All technological items ordered by this charter school remain the property of this charter school and are loaned for enrolled students usage only.

Warranties - An extended warranty (Apple and GovConnect computers) or replacement plan (Office Depot) must be included on every computer or tablet purchase order request.

eWaste - Technology devices with a screen require an eWaste fee. If ordering a devices through GovConnect or Apple, this fee must be included as a separate line item on the purchase order request.  Office Depot covers this fee in their product cost.  A line item eWaste fee does not need to be included on technology ordered through Office Depot.

eWaste fees are:

      • Five dollars ($5) for each electronic device with a screen size less than 15 inches.
      • Six dollars ($6) for each electronic device with a screen size equal to or greater than 15”.

Anti-Virus Requirement - all IEM owned computers must have anti-virus protection.  Here is a listing of free and paid versions anti-virus applications.Also, be sure to check with your ISP as some may offer free antivirus (e.g., AT&T U-verse / MacAfee, Comcast / Norton).  IF funds may be used to purchase anti-virus software but free versions are also adequate in providing protection.
