In accordance with the Michigan Department of Education Pupil Accounting Manual 5-O-B A.6.a. and A.6.b., a computer will be offered to learners enrolled under an approved seat time waiver that includes internet capacity and appropriate software configuration for use by the pupil in the home for the length of time that the pupil is enrolled in the seat time waiver program. The broadband internet capacity shall be a minimum of 1 Mbsp up/3 Mbsp down for use in the home for the length of time that the pupil is enrolled in the seat time waiver program.
In other words, NICE Community Schools will loan out a laptop to each seat time waiver pupil at no cost to the family (if needed). The laptop is to be returned to NICE Community Schools at the completion of the courses in the same working manner that it was received.
