As semester two begins, changes to the ID policy and Chromebook regulations have been implemented.

As of Feb. 5, the B-CC Media Center will no longer offer Chromebooks or Chromebook chargers for students to borrow. Mr. Baczkowski, Media Specialist, explained, “The county communicated to us that they are looking at a $15 million reduction in funding for technology. They cannot just provide as many chargers and Chromebooks as they were.”

Furthermore, after the same date, obligations will be issued for Chromebook repairs and replacements. A recent email to the B-CC community thoroughly outlined the new policy and obligation amounts for Chromebooks. For example, a peeled up trackpad or a broken camera will cost $25 each, while a smashed screen will cost triple that amount at $75. A lost or stolen device will cost $150 to replace.

Junior Sarah Schmeltz said, “I understand the Chromebook policy to an extent. But, I mean we are high school kids, and we are tired. It’s easy for us to forget, so honestly we should have the opportunity to get a Chromebook, if needed.”

In addition, B-CC has enacted a new ID policy also effective on Feb. 5. The policy mandates that all students show their current school ID to gain entry into the building. Temporary or old IDs will no longer be accepted. Students who have misplaced their ID will need to pay a $5 fee for a replacement. 

Senior Mila Mojto agrees with the change to the ID policy. She said, “It is a physical thing that the school has to pay for, so of course, it costs money to replace.”
