The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District is continuing its commitment to preparing students to succeed in an ever-changing world. This initiative includes teaching students to use technology productively, respectfully and ethically.   

The overarching vision for instructional technology for HF-L students is to have technology available to enhance productivity, communication, research, problem solving, decision-making and creativity within a community of learners. The HF-L District provides a  device for each student in the district for their educational use.


Device Protection Plan

What is it?

The Honeoye Falls-Lima Central School District is providing a protection plan to cover repair and/or replacement of the device and related equipment due to accidental damage or theft after payment of the appropriate deductible. 

Enrollment in the plan is optional with the understanding that if students/parents do not enroll in the protection plan, they are fully responsible for any repair and/or replacement costs in the same way they would be responsible for any other damaged or lost school property such as textbooks or music instruments and the District shall have no liability for repair or replacement. 

How to Sign-Up?

To participate in the 2021-2022 school year protection plan, the protection form and payment must be completed online at https://www.myschoolsbucks.com.  The deadline for completion of this form is September 15, 2021.

The cost of the Device Protection Plan is a $15 annual, per student, non-refundable fee. If you wish to participate and are not able to complete the form online, please contact your student’s Building Principal.

FAQ

Following are commonly asked questions about the issue, use and expectations for student assigned devices.   Should you have additional questions, please contact the HF-L Technology Department at 585-624-7014 or email technologyservices@hflcsd.org.

 

Is HF-L going to replace textbooks with digital content?

Over time, and when more advantageous, departments are choosing to adopt digital textbooks and resources.

Can students bring their own device to school? 

Yes, students are allowed to bring their own device.  The HF-L district assumes no liability for damage, loss or theft of any personal device. Personal devices can connect to the HF-L Wireless Network when on the HF-L campus.   

Is there a disadvantage to using a personal device versus a school owned device? 

  • Printing to school copiers or printers is not available from a personal device.  Students would need to save their work and log into a school owned computer to print. 

  • If a student requires specific software for a class, that would not be available on a personal device.    

  • Changing of network passwords and syncing to other applications would require a different process.  

  • There will be no Technical Support available for hardware repairs.  

What accessories or related supplies should students have? 

Similar to other school supplies, students in grades K-12 are encouraged to purchase headphones for use with class projects and testing.  

All students are encouraged to have a backpack with a laptop (padded) pocket or a separate laptop sleeve for carrying the device around school and to/from school.  

My student has special needs.  How do I ensure accommodations for their unique needs? 

Parents/guardians of students who have a disability should work with their student’s IEP manager and /or section 504 coordinator to determine what, if any, accommodations are needed.  

 

Will my student learn about digital citizenship? 

Yes. Instruction on citizenship, social and digital, is incorporated into everyday instruction.  For more information about digital citizenship, we recommend viewing resources form Common Sense Media (www.commonsense.org).   Our teaching staff has also created learning targets for digital citizenship for each building to insure that teachers have clear expectations for teaching these skills as technology is incorporated into lessons.  

Is there an associated cost? 

The district will purchase devices and all required software.  Families will be offered an opportunity to purchase a Device Protection Plan to offset unanticipated costs due to damage, loss or theft of the laptop. 


What happens if a student forgets to bring the device to school? 

If students fail to bring their device to school, they will be responsible for completing course work as though they had their device with them (think of it in the same way as a textbook).   Spare devices are not available to students when they forget to bring their assigned device to school. 


Will students keep devices over school breaks? 

Yes, students will be able to take home devices throughout the entire school year. Devices will be collected at the end of the school year.  

Will students keep devices over the summer? 

No, devices, power supplies and stylus, if applicable, will be collected at the end of the school year for maintenance and updates. 

When do devices need to be returned? 

All devices will be collected at the end of the school year.  Students who leave the district must return their school assigned device and accessories on or before the date they leave.  If a student fails to return the device at the end of the school year or upon termination of enrollment, the parent/guardian will be subject to civil liability for the total replacement cost of the device and any school supplied device accessories. 
 

Can parents/students install software or apps on a district provided device? 

No, the district will purchase and install all required software for student use. 

Will student devices be able to connect to wireless networks outside of school? 

Yes, district supplied devices will connect to any wireless network. 


What if I don't have internet access at home? 

Families who do not have internet access should reach out to their student's counselor or Building Principal. 

What happens if a device is damaged, lost or stolen? 

Students should report any damage or operating malfunction to their teacher or building tech representative.  If a device is kept by the Technology Department for assessment or repair, the student will be issued a loaner device.   

Loss or theft should also be reported to the Building Tech representative and the replacement/repair cost will be assessed by the Technology Department.
 
The district is offering a device protection plan to cover repair/replacement costs.    Please visit MySchoolBucks to review and sign up for the Protection Plan or review the Device Protection Plan on the HF-L website. 

Is the purchase of the Device Protection Plan optional? 

Yes, the purchase of the protection plan is at the discretion of the family. Please keep in mind that without the protection plan, families are liable for the full cost of any damage or the replacement cost of the device. 

If I choose not to purchase the protection plan, is my student still allowed to take home the device? 

Yes, students may still take home devices home.  Parents/guardians will be responsible for the full cost of any damage or replacement cost of the device. 

My student is a senior, can he/she purchase the device at the end of the school year? 

No, devices are redistributed in the district until the device reaches the end of its useful life.  

Will usage of a device be monitored at home (or other location off school grounds)?

No, the district does not monitor students' usage or their device outside of school hours when the device is off school grounds.  Parents/guardians are responsible for their student's appropriate use of their device during those times.
