What if I need to charge my machine during the school day?

Students are expected to bring a fully charged machine to school each day. The minimum specifications require devices to have at least seven hours of battery life. In case of emergency, there are charging outlets available throughout the school building, including in the media center.  In addition, the schools have charging lockers, which can charge one laptop/Chromebook and up to two phones/USB-charged devices.  They are stationed in safe areas in the schools where students might lock their machines during gym, class, lunch, or an afterschool activity.  The lockers have programmable codes that are unique to each user.  In the event of an emergency, school administration is able to access the contents of the lockers.
