On orientation day, Aug. 27, math teacher Chris Millsback left his computer on his desk before going to the high-school orientation meeting.
Since desks and other furniture were still being moved in, the room was unlocked at the time.
When he returned, Millsback realized his school-issued Macbook Pro was missing.
Nothing else was stolen, but the value of the brand new computer was approximately $1200.
The school did not contact police and, according to Tom Wroten, director of technology, the tracking software installed on the computer has been unable to locate it.
In light of the incident, teachers have been advised to store their laptops in their lockable file cabinets.
