    Replacement Cycle

    PFISD has established a five-year replacement cycle in four main program categories: Presentation Stations, Computer Labs, Libraries, and Offices. In the first four years of a computer's life, the equipment is fully covered for support. For the fifth and sixth year of its life, support is provided for the operating system and software with minimal hardware replacement. After six years, the equipment will have no formal support but will remain in service as long as possible.
