Technology Donations

Donation Guidelines

 
These guidelines apply to all schools and offices. Individuals and companies can donate computer equipment to Westminster School District (WSD). This procedure applies to donations of computer equipment and any other technology related items.
 
Donated computer equipment will be subject to the following guidelines:
 
  • The equipment must meet WSD minimum standards and be approved by the Information Technology Department.

  • Only Information Technology Department members can install hardware and software and perform upgrades to donated equipment. The site is responsible for providing all hardware and software components with the exception of District licensed anti-virus software.

  • Donated equipment or equipment purchased with donated funds will not be repaired, serviced or maintained except for ones that conform to current WSD standards.

  • The Information Technology Department cannot guarantee the functionality of non-standard hardware and software. Non-standard hardware and software will be installed using best effort*.

  • The site/office receiving the donation must complete a donation form and submit it to Business Services. When a site/office requests installation or upgrades to donated equipment there must be a WSD tag on the equipment or the site will be asked to provide a copy of the donation form verifying the equipment is WSD property. 
 
*Best Effort is defined as Information Technology taking reasonable steps necessary to install and/or configure components/software to operate within District guidelines. Equipment will not be upgraded to overcome performance or capacity limitations of the hardware.
