LAU Laptop & Chromebook Information

As an online school, Leadership Academy of Utah requires students to have access to a computer and the internet. For students without access to a computer, they may check out an LAU laptop/Chromebook to use for the academic year. 

All parents and students will be required to read and agree to the terms found in the Laptop/Chromebook Handbook as part of the checkout process.

Guidelines and Procedures

Parent & Student Commitment

Laptops/Chromebooks are the property of LAU. Students are responsible for returning them in working condition. Reasonable wear and tear are acceptable.

If damage occurs, parents will be charged the actual cost of any needed repairs, not to exceed the replacement cost of the laptop/Chromebook. LAU requires that all damages to laptop/Chromebooks be reported within one week.

Parents are responsible for picking up and returning equipment.

Submit Laptop/Chromebook Request Form

Requesting and checking out a laptop/Chromebook is a school-wide process that takes place each Fall, and as needed throughout the year.

Please submit the Laptop/Chromebook Request Form to request a laptop/Chromebook for your student.

Pick Up a Laptop/Chromebook

Pick-ups can be done by appointment at the Clearfield or Williamsburg Learning offices, at any ILC location on scheduled pick-up/drop-off dates during the school year, or via mail. Arrangements to receive a laptop/Chromebook via mail can be made in the Laptop/Chromebook Request form.

Submit Loan Agreement Confirmation Form

New and returning students using an LAU laptop or Chromebook are required to submit a loan agreement form. Students will need to take a photo of themselves with their laptop/Chromebook and upload it during the form completion process.

For Returning Students: 

Return, Exchange, and Incident Reports

If your student needs to return or exchange their laptop/Chromebook for any reason, please fill out the Computer Return, Exchange, or Incident Report form.

Exchanges

In the event that an LAU laptop/Chromebook needs to be exchanged, LAU will do so if a replacement is available.

General Returns

Laptops/Chromebooks can be returned at any time throughout the school year by the following methods:

  • By appointment at the Clearfield or Williamsburg Learning offices
  • At any ILC location on scheduled pick-up/drop-off dates during the school year
  • Via mail (Parents cover the shipping fee unless the student lives further than 60 miles from a return location)
  • During school-wide returns week which falls the last week of May each year

Returns Due to Damage

If a student returns a damaged laptop/Chromebook and is issued a new one, parents will be required to submit the following:

  • Computer Return, Exchange, or Incident Report form
  • A new Laptop/Chromebook Request form
  • A new Laptop/Chromebook Loan Agreement Confirmation form

This ensures LAU records remain accurate and current.

*Important Note: Parents are required to pay for all computer damages before a new computer can be issued.

Receiving or Returning by Mail

All LAU families have the option of receiving or returning their computer(s) via mail if they prefer. Any family living closer than 60 miles to a pick-up/drop-off location will be responsible for paying the shipping expenses prior to shipment. Arrangements to receive or mail computers can be made in the Laptop/Chromebook Request form or the Computer Return, Exchange or Incident Report form.
