Students in grades 7 through 9 are required to bring their own laptops to school for use during the academic day. All laptops must be registered with the Technology Department in order to connect to the campus wireless network and to ensure laptops are correctly configured for classes. Visit the TECH WELCOME CENTER on Tuesday, September 4th, to register your computers and get help with any technology questions!
Fay School fully supports the use of Windows and Apple computers. The recommended minimum requirements are:
Warranty: 3-year onsite warranty with accidental coverage or equivalent AppleCare
Accessories: 1TB External USB storage drive, USB mouse
For Windows laptops, Fay School has partnered with GovConnection and Lenovo to create a customized Premium Program for Fay families to purchase the recommended laptop package at a discounted price. Other benefits of the Premium Program include:
Computer support - the Fay School Technology Team internally supports systems similar to the recommended Lenovo T480s and would be able to extend the same support to students who purchase that model;
Warranty support - where needed, the Fay School Technology Team will work with Lenovo to provide further hardware support under the recommended warranty;
Data Backup - the recommended 1TB external hard drive can be used to back up student data during repairs, as needed;
Lenovo Advantage - Lenovo computers are known for their durability and ability to sustain tough conditions. Thinkpad laptops pass Mil-Spec durability and more.
Fay School hopes to create a similar program for purchasing Apple computers in the near future. For now, students who prefer to use a Mac may purchase one at an Apple store or online. A MacBook with an Intel Core i5 processor and above would be sufficient for Fay.
Students are responsible for looking after their personal technology. Use of the School’s technology, including computers, email, and tablets, must adhere to the Acceptable Use Policy as written in the Parent and Student Handbook. School owned resources are to be used for educational purposes only.
Cell phones may not be used during the school day.
Please contact the Technology Department (firstname.lastname@example.org), with any questions regarding technology use at Fay School.
The Fay School Store sells binders, paper, pens, pencils and other school supplies, but it does not sell calculators. Students can visit the store Monday-Friday during the school day and purchases will be billed to their SmartTuition account.
