Every student at Kairos is issued a Chromebook. The Chromebooks students get at Kairos are really nice. They’re sleek and lightweight and the screen swivels. We invested in the best technology because it’s a primary learning tool. Just like adults rely on their computers to do their jobs, students can’t do theirs without a high-quality machine. That means they need to charge your computer every night!
The Chromebook students are issued remains theirs for their time at Kairos, so they should take care of them! The most common ways that students break their laptops is by (1) cracking the screen or (2) spilling water on it.
Internet and Email Use
Internet access (including email use) is a privilege, not a right. We believe it should only be used only to support student learning and growth. It is not okay, for example, for students to use technology for anything inappropriate or illegal. If students inadvertently come across inappropriate information or pictures, they should tell an adult immediately to protect them against an allegation that they have intentionally violated the Internet and Device Acceptable Use Policy.
Take Home Policy
We hope students will continue to explore their academic passions at home! While students are always free to use their computers at home, computers may have certain website restrictions. Please keep in mind that the Internet and Device Acceptable Use Policy applies regardless of location.
Kairos has internet filtering software that blocks inappropriate and harmful digital content. Of course, no filtering technology is perfect, and ours may occasionally fail. In the event that it does, Kairos cannot assume liability for your child’s actions. We strongly encourage you to discuss acceptable internet use with your child and raise any concerns you may have with your coach.
Students may need headphones to access a variety of learning tools (YouTube clips, poetry slams, audiobooks, podcasts, etc.).
Families can purchase laptop insurance during your first month of enrollment. (For most students, that’s August). Insurance costs $30 and covers all accidental damage. Please note that insurance only covers damage related to laptops. It does not cover theft or loss or damage to school-issued chargers.
