    Form 2 - Internet Acceptable Use Policy

    Chromebook Program Fee

    For the 2021-22 school year there is a $35 technology fee for all 6th-12th graders. This fee helps support the ongoing costs of the districts 1:1 take-home Chromebook program. This fee is payable online (recommended) or in-person at the school business office. You may also apply to have this fee waived by contacting your school's office.

    Health and Safety

    Please follow the below procedures to ensure your safety, and the safety of our staff during the check-out process:

    • If you or your student(s) are sick with, symptomatic of, or have been in contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19 - DO NOT come to the Chromebook checkout. Alternate arrangements can be made to issue a Chromebook to your student(s).
    • Masks will be required indoors for all regardless of vaccination status.

    Still Have Previously Issued District Technology?

    If you still have unreturned district tech equipment from remote learning, or your previous Shoreline school, please bring them with you to your school's Chromebook checkout. District IT staff will check-in your equipment and check out the correct device to you for middle or high school use. Note: If you have unreturned Shoreline tech equipment you may not be able to check-out your Chromebook until any outstanding equipment is returned.

    In-School Only Option for Student Chromebooks

    You may opt-out of the take-home Chromebook program by completing and returning the In-School Only Option form to the school's tech office. Families choosing not to receive a district Chromebook for full school/home access assume responsibility for providing adequate computer access at home for the completion of school assignments, Canvas access, etc. Students opting-out will have the option of checking out a Chromebook each day for in-school only use only (may not be taken home). Please note that the district does not have a BYOD (bring your own device) program and personal devices cannot be substituted for the district provided Chromebook.

    Web Filtering and Off Campus Restricted Access

    The Shoreline School District provides web filtering for the Chromebooks both while on the district network and while at home. No web filtering is 100% accurate and filtering is not a replacement for active monitoring of your student's online activities. We do provide an option for more restrictive web filtering if that becomes required. To request additional filtering please complete the form below and return to your school's tech office.

    Wi-Fi Hot Spots

    Hot Spots will not be available at the Chromebook checkout. We have a limited number of hot spots that we can make available for families with specific needs. Please contact your school counselor to make a hot spot request.

    Running Start Students

    Running Start students must be enrolled in at least one class at Shorewood or Shorecrest per semester to be eligible to check out a Chromebook. Full time running start students are not eligible to receive a Chromebook. Chromebooks are configured for Shoreline School District use and will not work with Shoreline Community College Google accounts.
