How to Return your District Laptop/Tablet or Cell Phone for Departing Staff




The District Protocol requires that all staff departing from employment must return any District equipment to the appropriate department/location.  

District owned equipment should not be left at the school/department or be given to another employee.    If an employee does leave the device in the care of a supervisor or other employee, an IT  work ticket should be submitted requesting for the device to be picked up and returned back to the appropriate place.   

Each employee requesting a device must receive proper approval. Therefore, laptops/tablets and cell phones are non-transferrable and should remain under the care of the employee to whom they were issued to until it is returned.
