FCPSOn Laptop Opt-Out Form

Each High school student at Robinson Secondary School has the opportunity to receive an FCPS-issued laptop. If you wish to opt your child out of receiving the FCPS-issued laptop and have your student use a personally-owned laptop instead, please arrange a time to have a conversation with your grade level administration at Robinson Secondary School. They have information specific to the instructional practice at Robinson Secondary School that might be impacted by the introduction of a personal laptop. If, after the conversation, you still choose to send a personally-owned laptop with your student, please sign and return this form to the front office. Please note that by signing this form, you also acknowledge that you understand the following requirements for personally-owned devices to be used in the classroom: 

1. Every student will need a laptop to frequently access instructional material and content. If a personal laptop is used in place of the FCPS-issued laptop, the personal laptop must be a portable laptop equivalent with a screen and keyboard. The student must bring it to school fully-charged every day. Smartphones, tablet readers, and wearable technologies are not acceptable substitutes for an FCPS laptop. 

2. Any FCPS student applications with licensing agreements that require installation on FCPS laptops cannot be installed on personally-owned laptops. FCPS licensing agreements do not permit installation on personal devices. As a result, parents will need to assume responsibility for acquiring and installing those applications on a personally-owned laptop. Instructional choices are made by teachers and teams at each school. Families should contact the teacher for required software information. The inability of the personal laptop to access licensed software may impact your student’s instructional experience. 

3. The personally-owned laptop must be able to run Google Apps for Education, Microsoft Office products, 

  and FCPS-approved internet browsers Google Chrome and Internet Explorer 11 or higher. 

4. FCPS-issued laptops are fully supported by school technology teams. Tech support will not be available for personally-owned devices. 

5. FCPS is not responsible for storage, loss, or damage of the personal laptop. 

6. Personally-owned laptops must be compatible with the school’s WiFi network. 

Please, print, fill out and turn in, this form to your grade level administrator. Robinson SS FCPSOn Opt-Out Form
