Policy for dealing with broken/vandalised equipment?
We have a big problem at the moment with pupils vandalising or stealing mice and damaging keyboards or taking the keys. We then get teachers sending pupils to us to get replacement mice or keyboards, or they sometimes phone us to ask us to bring the equipment.
At the moment our store room is not in the same place as our office. We have an internal email system in place and staff are supposed to log calls using email. So, I was thinking of having a policy of saying 'We do not keep mice or keyboards in our office, we keep them in the store room. All requests must be e-mailed to us, we will then replace the equipment, we will aim to do this by the next lesson'.
Does this sound a good idea or not? Anyone got a better idea?
Thanks in advance!
