Computer - Internet

Loaner Computer Policy

If requested, K12 Virtual Schools LLC (Stride K12) students will be loaned one computer per family to be used to access the online learning platform during that student’s enrollment in OVCA. Additional computers may be provided if the Class Connect schedules of siblings overlap. Contact your CFA to request an additional computer due to scheduling needs.

OVCA will not replace computers that are intentionally damaged or damaged due to negligence or misuse. Pursuant to the Agreement for Use of Instructional Property, families are solely liable for any loss or damage to the computer until it is returned to K12 Virtual Schools LLC (Stride K12) and should take proper precautions to protect it. OVCA may require families to pay for lost or damaged computers.
 

Mobile Broadband Devices 

OVCA offers a mobile broadband device program to students who qualify as economically disadvantaged, as determined by Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines used in determining eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. Student who qualify may be eligible to be issued a mobile broadband device for the duration of enrollment at OVCA. The number of devices is limited and will be issued one per family on a first come, first served basis. The device is to be used for attending online classes, accessing and completing schoolwork/activities and communicating with the school. It is not provided for personal use.
The device is equipped with Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) filters, but the school is not responsible for sites accessed through the device. By receiving the device, the legal guardian accepts responsibility for monitoring internet use of the student and responsibly for payment for lost, damaged or stolen devices. Normal use will not exceed the monthly allowable data. Misuse may cause the data to exceed limits, which results in loss of internet access until the next billing cycle. Misuse will result in denial to participate in OVCA’s mobile broadband device program. The device must be returned immediately to OVCA upon withdrawal or graduation.
Without a waiver from the Head of the School, to be eligible for a mobile broadband device, a student must participate in all required testing and must have an attendance rate of no less than ninety percent (90%).
