Updated Student Device Policy
Dear RPS Parents,
The student device policy has been revised and approved by the Randolph School Committee. Effective for the school year 2022-2023, the technology fee will be $30 per student device for all students in grades 2 through grade 12. The technology fee payment should be made via cash or money order. No student will receive their device without confirmation of payment.
Please review the new device policy:

It is the student's responsibility to care for the equipment and ensure that it is retained in a safe environment. Identification labels have been placed on the laptop. These labels are not to be removed or modified. The devices are the property of Randolph Public Schools and is herewith being loaned to the student for educational purposes only for the academic school year, and must be used in accordance with the Policies and Procedures contained herein, the Student Code of Conduct, the Randolph Public School District Acceptable Use Policy, the Student Fees Policy, and any applicable laws.
