    Already Have a District Issued Chromebook or iPad?

    If you checked out a Chromebook or iPad from the district last spring for remote learning, please complete the new form and bring the device and charger with you to your schools Chromebook checkout. District staff will verify that you have the correct device for your school and grade and swap it out if necessary.

    Internet Access

    The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) plans to enter into agreements with private partners to provide internet connectivity to students who are low-income. OSPI will cover the costs of internet for those families through the end of the 2020-21 school year. At this time we are still waiting on the details of the plan and will share with families and staff as soon as we have more information.

    Shoreline School District also has a limited number of mobile hotspots that can be loaned out to families who need access but do not qualify for the state program or may need one to bridge the gap between the start of school and the start of the state program.
