Heard County Schools may want to acknowledge student work, activities, and/or achievements on the school's website and Social Media pages. Please indicate your consent below to include limited information about your child (photograph, student work, first name, and/or grade level) on Social Media.

Title: Corporal Punishment
Any principal employed by the board, or his or her designee, in order to maintain proper control and discipline over pupils under his or her care and supervision, may, in the exercise of sound discretion, administer corporal punishment to any pupil or pupils under his or her care and supervision. No other employee of the board or any other person, including the parents or guardian of such child or children, may administer corporal punishment in the school in this system. The following requirements must be strictly adhered to in the administering of corporal punishment:
1. The corporal punishment shall not be excessive or unduly severe.
2. Corporal punishment shall never be used as the first line of punishment for misbehavior unless the pupil was informed beforehand that specific misbehavior could occasion its use; provided, however, that corporal punishment may be employed as the first line of punishment for those acts of misconduct which are so antisocial or disruptive in nature as to the conscience.
3. Corporal punishment must be administered in the presence of a principal or assistant principal, or the designee of the principal or assistant principal, employed by the board of education authorizing such punishment, and the witnessing principal or assistant principal, or the designee of the principal or assistant principal, must be informed beforehand and in the presence of the pupil of the reason for the punishment.
4. The principal or teacher who administered corporal punishment must provide the child's parents, upon request, a written explanation for the reasons for the punishment and the name or the principal or assistant principal, or designee of the principal or assistant principal who was present; provided, however, that such an explanation shall not be used as evidence in any subsequent civil action brought as a result of said corporal punishment.
5. Corporal punishment shall not be administered to a child whose parents or legal guardian have filed with the principal of the school a statement expressly objecting to the use of corporal punishment or a statement from a medical doctor licensed in Georgia stating that corporal punishment is detrimental to the child's mental or emotional stability.
In addition to the requirements of O.C.G.A. § 20-2-731, the following requirements and restrictions as to the administering of corporal punishment shall also apply to all persons who shall administer corporal punishment in this school system:
1. Corporal punishment shall be administered in private and not in the presence of other students.
2. Corporal punishment shall be administered only in the presence of the person administering such punishment and one witness, both of whom must be professionally certified employees of this school system.
3. Corporal punishment shall not be administered to a student who refuses to accept corporal punishment in lieu of other punishment.
4. Where corporal punishment has been tried on several occasions and the conduct of the child has not improved, the principal shall explore the use of other forms of punishment.

Chromebook Rules and GuidelinesAll rules and guidelines are in effect before, during, and after school hours and wherever the Chromebook is being used (on or off school property).
EXPECTATIONS OF USE:
If a student does not bring his/her Chromebook to school or doesn’t bring it charged:
HALLWAYS & COMMONS AREAS:
The Chromebook and all accessories are the property of Heard County School System. Students are prohibited from:
ACCIDENT vs. NEGLIGENCE:
Failure to follow procedures and rules regarding Chromebooks will lead to disciplinary action.
The Heard County School District is pleased to offer our students individual access to Chromebooks in grades K-12. The advantages provided by the access to digital resources available today outweigh the challenges. However, it is important to acknowledge that this access is a privilege, not a right, and carries with it responsibilities for all involved.
The Chromebooks issued to students are property of the Heard County School District and with any school property issued to students, our policies and regulations require that a fine be levied to cover the repair or replacement cost of the property. With mobile computing devices like Chromebooks, the cost of loss or damage can be significant.
We are providing this Chromebook Damage/Loss Program to families to help reduce the financial risk if a Chromebook is accidentally damaged, or stolen.
Each student will be supplied with a Chromebook that includes a district bar code and a label, a case (HCMS/HCHS), and a charging cord. Any damage to the device, cords, charging plug, or case will result in the student and family being billed for the replacement and/or repair costs. This program does not cover lost devices, cases, or charging cords along with intentional damage to any of those items. If a replacement cord, plug, or case is needed, the Technology Department will order the item and the family will be billed the replacement/repair cost. If the family does not purchase the protection plan, the family will be billed for repair part costs.
COVERAGE AND LIMITS
This program covers the Chromebook loaned to the student against accidental damage, theft, fire, or natural disaster for one (1) school year. This program does NOT cover intentional misuse, abuse, or neglect by the student or any household members. If the student does not exercise proper care, as described in the Student Handbook, and this negligence results in damage to or loss of the Chromebook, the cost of the repair or replacement will be the responsibility of the student.
Non-Covered Items Replacement Costs
Families may choose to not purchase the protection plan for the Chromebook and will be responsible for the full value of the Chromebook or repairs. Replacement or repair fees will be assessed for lost or damaged Chromebooks according to the following estimates:
*Families who select No Coverage will be responsible for any damages to the District issued Chromebook and will need to pay for these repairs in a timely manner.
*This protection plan does not cover lost/stolen power supplies or cases.
This form is used to enroll your student in the Chromebook Damage/Loss Program to protect against damage of the loaned Chromebook in your care.
