In your form you have something that says
"Laptop users will familiarize themselves with the “Use and Treatment of
Laptop Computers” guidelines provided by the District IT Team. "

Can you share those guidelines?

I'm working on a form that uses many of the guidelines you have all shared.
Thank you very much for sharing.

I'm considering a asking that those who get a laptop  attend a
  "retooling"  PD sessions which could be hands on or online. Perhaps every
2 years?  I'm not sure if that will be looked at favorably yet.  Feedback?
