All teachers will be required to return their laptops this year. We need to consider how this is going to be done and I’ll provide some options, but would like you to comment on the post (remember it is public) if you have a preference or other suggestion…
All Teachers will be required to hand in their WWP laptops at the end of June to their administrators. If a special circumstance exists please email firstname.lastname@example.org (need it for a wedding slideshow etc) but arrangements must be made to hand it in during the summer. We will then transfer data, reimage and provide a new (possibly new to you) laptop to you at a later date arranged with the staff and yourself.
All Teachers will be required to hand in their WWP laptops by appointment during the summer before August 15th at the facilities shop. We will then transfer data, reimage and provide a new (possibly new to you) laptop to you at a later date arranged with the staff and yourself.
No I want to keep my old 4 year old laptop and I don’t want a brand new or one year old laptop! – No, not really an option, we want them all back
Option 4: Mix of Option 1 and 2
Leave your laptop with your AO June 30 or arrange with TS to drop it off on a certain day.
Something else? Please give your thoughts in the comments to share.
Back up your Data
We also advise teachers to back up their data to the network or external drive. Personally purchased movies, pictures, music should be backed up by the teacher externally (ie. External Hard drive). NB: We won’t be held responsible for any purchases on your laptop or data that you haven’t backed up!
Who does this apply to?
Anyone with a WWP owned computer – that means AO’s, grade 6/7/8 teachers, teachers assigned a spare computer, 8-10 Teachers at Bert Bowes and Dr. Kearney as well are included in this.
Will I get a laptop back?
Grade 6/7 teachers will be provided with a new laptop
Grade 8 teachers will be provided with the one to two year old laptops if at all possible, (grade 9 teachers at BB and DK as well)
Grade 10 teachers moving to NPSS will not receive a laptop.
