    Device Care and Responsibility:  The Orcutt Union School District provides instructional materials to all students. Students are responsible for the general care of their textbooks, materials and district issued technology. Devices that are broken or fail to work properly must be reported to the school media specialist for an evaluation of the equipment by our district technology support personnel.  Special care must be taken to protect the device at all times. District issued technology is the property of the district. All users and their parents/guardians must familiarize themselves with the following care instructions and information.

    General Precautions:  

    • Keep food and drinks away from the device.
    • Store device in a safe place off of the floor and couch to prevent sitting, stepping, or spilling on.
    • Store device away from heat, direct sun and cold to prevent damage.
