Laptop Program including BYO

 

The Mount Gravatt High 1to1 laptop program is in its 6th year.  We have seen much change in the way that student’s access technology and also in the way teachers are delivering teaching in the classroom because of our 1to1 laptop program. 

Given the success of the program and large financial investment the school has made to the upkeep of devices and also the whole school infrastructure we desire to ensure the long term viability of the 1to1 laptop program.

As such the school will be introducing a BYO program for senior school (years 10-12) commencing from 2017.  The junior school (years 7-9) will continue with a school provided device.

With the introduction of a BYO program in senior school parents and students will be given the opportunity where they can choose a device from Education Queensland approved vendors and access special pricing and additional warranty and insurances not available to the retail market.  These devices are fully owned and remain your personal property. 

Parents of senior students can access the Education Queensland approved vendors online purchase portals via the links below:

Please note the following processes when purchasing a BYO device:

  1. Select one of the available DELL or ACER devices from the above web portal links.
  2. Each of these devices include 3 year next business day onsite warranty as well as accidental damage protection.  Please have a read of the relevant documentation that outlines the policy ie what is covered and what is not.
  3. Once you have placed an order through the website direct with the manufacture it will take approximately 2 weeks for delivery (over Christmas period delivery can take up to​ 4-6 weeks). 
  4. Delivery will be to your nominated address i.e. home
  5. All laptops will come with the standard manufacture software only i.e. windows operating system
  6. When your laptop arrives please bring it to the IT help desk at school where we will install all of the required school software.
  7. BYO devices will throughout the year continue to be supported by the IT help desk in the same way school provided devices have always been serviced.  The IT department will continue to troubleshoot minor software issues with the students and should a manufacture warranty or accidental damage claim need to be logged we will provide a report home for parental permission before we log a job on your behalf.  This enables the school to be the central place for all issues including warranty and or damages to be repaired without requiring a technician to come out to your home.
