Lost Laptops and Chargers

When students lose an FCPS provided laptop or charger they are responsible for replacing them. 

Replacement fee for lost computer equipment:

  • Dell 3310 Laptop Computer ($472.00)
  • Dell 3310 Charger ($23) 

Replacement charges can be paid either through:

  • MySchoolBucks -
