Device Check-Out, Check-In and Repairs

Howard is now a one to one digital school, and the media center is the primary location for laptop check-in, check-out, and repairs.  Students are encouraged to keep their devices charged regularly, and to demonstrate care for their equipment.  If a student needs assistance with a device, the media center is open each morning for tech support.  Damage and/or loss of devices or chargers should be reported immediately.


Except for specific reference material, all materials in the media center are available for checkout. Students may check out three books for a two-week period. Periodicals and designated reference materials may be checked out overnight. All material not on reserve may be renewed once upon request. Teachers and staff may check out materials for a three-week period with the option to renew if not on reserve. Overdue notices will be sent to all students, teachers and staff. Students will not be permitted to check out materials as long as they have overdue or books. 

Students, teachers and staff are responsible for lost and/or damaged materials. It is strongly discouraged for teachers to check out materials under their name for students.
