Board of Education (BOE) officials have highlighted the “lack of care and protection” of the electronic tablets issued to secondary students across the island.
A press release from the Education Ministry explained that some students have damaged and misplaced the tablets since the two week distribution began in Mid-March.
The Ministry has also said it anticipated that some e-books would need repair and replacements and so provisions are in place to provide students with working e-books before the September school term begins.
According to the BOE, damaged devices can be returned to Book Managers from June 19th to June 30th between 9 am and 4:30 pm as the same process is applied to hard copy text books.
Parents are to accompany students and can expect to pay for the lost or damaged devices.
The pilot phase of the e-books initiative began in March and since then 6, 499 devices have been distributed.
