    AUP for Laptop

    Help. I need an AUP in order for my 7 year old son to bring his laptop home to do homework on. The LA say the school need to produce one that I can sign but they don't seem to have a clue as to what to do!! Does anyone have one I can utilise?

    It would be pointless for you to sign an AUP that you obtained yourself without first giving it to the school for their senior management to then sign off themselves. Without senior managements say so it would be useless.
    Why would they ask you to sort it out? Surely thats their job? If the school don't want the laptops going home then thats their decision, but if they allow students to take them home then its really up to them to provide the necessary policies.

    Can you elaborate?

    AUP for Laptop

    The school has never had a laptop sent home but have been told that he needs it to go home to allow him to access the cirriculum better. The LA have said it's their laptop but it's up to the school to produce a AUP for me to sign. They don't know what to do next and the LA are not being helpful.

    Find the laptops for teachers one and use that, at least it's something the school should know about.

    Mind you, if your son's statemented and this is recognised from the LA you shouldn't need to do anything further.
