1-to-1 Laptops

Moorestown is pleased to be able to offer a 1-to-1 device program, typically for grades 6-12, but actually for PK-12 due to the COVID-related circumstances.

Below are links to some documents related to the 1-to-1 program which must be completed by each student and their parent/guardian.

Tech Support
The best place to get tech support is the technology "helpdesk" for your school (MHS = Room A221.  Other schools helpdesks are in the media center.)  You can also send an email to laptopsupport@mtps.com for advice, concerns, questions, or other issues - this email address is sometimes answered after-hours, but is not monitored 24x7.  Here are the specific tech support contacts by school:

Accidental Damage
As a reminder, CHANGED FOR 20-21, the district does NOT have any accident protection/insurance coverage on student computers.  Any accidental damage to student devices (including the first damage incident of the school year) will result in the cost of the replacement parts being charged to the family.  Damage that occurs repeatedly may result in additional fines related to repair/replacement of the damage.  If you do receive a device fee in Genesis, your access to other areas of Genesis will be restricted until it is paid and processed by MTPS staff.  To make an online payment against a fee, please access the online payment portal and then make a payment for a particular item.

Printing
Students are permitted to attempt to hook up and use their at-home printer, but it may or may not work.  Wired (USB) printer connections have a good chance of working, but wireless printers likely will not.  For your convenience, here is a list of printers that Microsoft Windows 10 already has the software for  on our 1-to-1 laptops.  However, there is still no guarantee that your printer will work with the laptop, even if your printer is on this list.

Another option for printing is to use Google Cloud Print which directs print jobs through a person's Google account to a printer used by another computer at home.  It is fairly easy to setup and can work with many different printers - even wireless ones.  More details here.  However, Google is planning to deactivate the Google Cloud Print service after December 31, 2020. 

Internet access at home
If you are looking for a low-cost option for Internet access at home, one option is Comcast's Internet Essentials program for student families who qualify. Another source of inexpensive Internet access options is Jersey On.  If you are still having trouble getting Internet access at home, please reach out to the guidance counselor at your school.
