SMCPS Issued Books, Consumables, & Technology
Unless you are a Senior, students will keep their technology checked out over the summer. A technology survey will be sent out by the end of the school year that will be used to renew these devices to students. This will be a site based survey.
Please see the student resource accountability document for specific guidelines on Technology.
YOUR school will send out further guidance on technology returns if applicable in May.
Examples of consumables at the middle school level are the science modules, Springboard and My Perspectives for ELA, and the Carnegie Math books. At the high school level students also have consumables in math and ELA courses.
While students do not have to return these, they are held accountable if they lose them and need a replacement.
Consumables do NOT get returned at the end of the school year.
Students That Withdraw
When students leave SMCPS, the following items must be returned prior to withdrawing.
All textbooks and resources
All technology (laptops, chargers, iPad/charger, hot spots)

If anything is not returned a fine will be assessed for the cost of the materials and technology.
The Media Specialist at each site has a record of what each student has checked out.

Students are held liable and accountable for checked out resources, (textbooks, consumables and technology). If anything is lost, stolen, or broken fines are assessed to the student account and a debt letter will be emailed and/or mailed (see page 50, 51, & 61 of SMCPS Student Handbook).
