Your laptop computer
If you are a full-time student on one of Butler Tech’s high school campuses, you will receive a laptop computer when you begin your program. It will be yours to use for the entire time you are in the program, and in most cases, it will belong to you after you complete your program at Butler Tech.
About the computer
Your computer is a fully functioning laptop that uses the Microsoft Windows operating system. All computers will have Microsoft Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) installed, along with the specialized software you will need for your educational program.
Most courses will use the Schoology Learning Management System for school messages, homework assignments, calendars, schedules, tutorials, etc. Computers also will have wireless and wired Internet access.
It’s yours when you graduate
When you complete the program you will take ownership of the laptop free of charge if you meet these requirements:
- Meet or exceed all graduation requirements
- Complete your Career Technical Program
- 95% attendance rate during the final year of the program
- Once in the program, not suspended or expelled from the program
If you qualify to keep your computer free of charge, you will turn it back into the district to be refurbished to its original condition, and it will be returned to you.
