Applicable to all schools and offices.
Individuals and companies can make donations of equipment to the district. This procedure applies to donations of computer equipment and all types of other technology.
Donated computer equipment will be subject to the following guidelines:
- The equipment must be the minimum standards set forth by Technology & Information Services
- ONLY Technology & Information Services can install hardware and software and perform upgrades of the equipment. The site is responsible for providing ALL hardware and software components with the exception of District licensed software which is provided by Technology & Information Services (such as Microsoft Office and anti-virus software).
- Donated equipment or equipment purchased with donated funds will not be repaired, serviced or maintained except as noted below.
- Donated equipment or equipment purchased with donated funds that conforms to current District standards such as current, District approved Apple and HP equipment will receive warranty service from Technology & Information Services as we are authorized for warranty repair on such equipment.
- In all cases, Technology & Information Services cannot guarantee the functionality of non-standards hardware and software. Non-standard hardware and software will be installed using 'best effort'.
- The site receiving the donation must complete a Donation Form (see link below) and submit the form to the Business Office. When a site requests installation or upgrades to donated equipment there must be a property of LBUSD tag on the equipment or the site will be asked to provide a copy of the DONATION FORM as proof that the equipment has become the property of the LBUSD. (The same requirement will apply to District provided warranty service on donated equipment.)
*Best Effort is defined as Technology & Information Services taking reasonable steps to obtain and/or configure hardware and drivers necessary to install and/or configure components to operate within District guidelines. Equipment will not be upgraded (CPU, hard drive, memory, etc.) to overcome performance or capacity limitations of the hardware.
