    Job closed - deliberate damage to equipment.

    Repeat until entire suite is borked.

    Upgrade suite, paid from all teaching budgets equally (if you don't know who's responsible. If you do, take it from them.)

    That'll learn 'em.

    @all:

    "Y se me hizo pensar que eras todo de la misma opinión que yo"

    Its the classroom management and possibly some of the boring lessons and if the staff are not going to do their jobs properly then why should it fall on my head, yes I will help them help themselves if this is what it takes but I find it totally irresponsible and unprofessional not to look after school equipment especially in these times of financial austerity!

    It requires a firm hand sometimes with both staff and students but first it must come from SLT

    Erm... about 17.5 if you're lucky.

    Otherwise you're going to have to flip it turnways.

    What punishments have SLT been issuing to students for damage that they are court committing?
    Also what have they said to staff, when damage is a regular occurence in the lesson?

    My fav rearranging of keys was "k.n.*.b.end" with end being the end key

    We check all bookable rooms every morning. The lucky person on the early shift gets to do it. Then when damages happen we are never more than a day behind investigating.

    Same as above most damage is done by unsupervised "oh look there is an open it suite" students. However we have our fair share of teachers at all levels who fail to check , notice or reports damages. Apparently there just isn't time!

    We are going through a stage where kids are rearranging the letters on the keyboard and breaking through the cable ties to take the mouse. Also they are pulling up the buttons on the mice to stop them work, still waiting for the day i catch someone in person doing this. They dont have any respect for anything these days.

    I am looking at making something that can be screwable to lock/secure the cables for mouse, keyboard and ethernet together, a bit like a flex grip in a plug so they cannot walk off with the mouse and keyboard. Either that or blanking plates with two bits cut out with brissals on that is small enough so usb ends cannot be fed through it and is big enough is not to nip the cable on the computer case.. hmmmm... Apparently you can buy metal cable ties, trouble is, how do you cut the off :S

    CCTV - both to catch the culprit and act as a deterrent. Since the introduction of it in one of our larger rooms (60 machines) general tomfoolery like this has decreased and when it does happen, we're able to get it dealt with in a matter of minute. It doesn't even cost much: the HD cameras we use are Bluecom and were only £100 each. BlueIris for the software. The worst we get now is keys being swapped on keyboards. It even helps us to track where USB drives go when people leave them in machines

    wonder around this morning, doors unlocked, which they shouldnt be, but no damage from what i can see...

    Do you guys have trouble with some members of staff using classrooms as walk throughs and not locking them behind them?

    Yes. We have put pin tumbler locks [Yale] and closers on the doors but even this does not help as staff do not make sure that the door has closed behind them before leaving [the closers/locks have been damaged and not repaired]
