Checking Out Equipment (Laptops and iPad Carts)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION - Please Read!
Laptop carts and iPads must be checked out using the Equipment Checkout Calendars. Never, pick up a laptop or an iPad from a cart and just walk away with it. At the end of the day, please return the equipment to it's correct "home." If you don't know where the equipment belongs, please ask someone in the library and we will be glad to help you. It's very frustrating to your fellow teachers when they come to pick up equipment and things aren't where they belong. Even if you use a couple of laptops for centers, you still need to sign them out. The checkout calendars are our only way to track laptop and iPad usage and location.
If you have questions about technology, please see me. I'm always glad to answer questions. Don't forget that you can also refer to the Cooke Technology Page on the Teacher Portal for lots of resources and information regarding Technology @ Cooke School.
- Please limit your checkout of the same equipment to three days in row
- iPads can only be checked out for 1/2 day at a time (switch teachers can check out the cart for one full day to allow all students to access the iPads)
- Equipment MUST be checked out BEFORE it is used
- iPad carts CAN NOT stay in a classroom overnight. They must be returned to the LMC workroom at the end of the day (unless you have made arrangements with Ms. Faust).
Headphones for the Laptops & iPads
We have one set of headphones that can be used with laptops or iPads. The headphones are now available for checkout through the the library. See Mrs. Guido to checkout the headphones and she will scan the bag before giving it to you. Please remember to return the bag to the library by the end of the day. We've had some trouble keeping up the headphones. Hopefully, this new checkout procedure will help us to keep track of where the headphones are located.

The state has created TestNav practice tests for the VMAST and audio tests. Links to these practice tests are also located on the SOL Resources page. The audio tests are organized by grade level and the VMAST tests are in a section by themselves at the bottom of the list.
