Returning Devices and EOY Procedures

All Chromebooks and IPads are district property and must be returned when requested; when your child leaves or no longer attends School City of East Chicago; and at the end of each school year. Exceptions are made for students enrolled in our Cardinal Excel Camp or Summer School programs.

Specific information will be shared in the spring of each year by your child's school for end of year (EOY) procedures in returning your child's Chromebook.

Chromebooks may not be kept or bought for any reason.

Students who are aware of an issue - such as a lost, stolen or non-functioning item - are strongly encouraged to contact the SCEC Information Technology Department as soon as possible to address the issue. It is better to address issues early than to wait until the final week of school.

  • Permanent stickers, labels, or other markings may not be affixed to Chromebooks and must be removed prior to turning in the device. Hand sanitizer is recommended to safely remove the stickers and all sticker residue.

  • Chromebooks must be returned in good condition with power adapters.

  • Parents/Guardians are responsible for damage to Chromebooks caused by neglect or abuse.
