Additional information regarding the Chromebook Program fee payment and fee waiver request form will be available this summer on the district and high school websites.

Returning Students

Students returning to Shorecrest or Shorewood for the 2019-20 school year will be allowed to keep their Chromebooks and accessories (case, charger, cable) for use over the summer.

  • The current 2018-19 technology device fee and Chromebook usage agreement will cover summer use through 8/31/ 2019.

  • Returning students will not be required to complete a new Chromebook usage agreement for the 2019-20 school year.

  • For returning students the 2019-20 technology device fee or waiver form will be due prior to the start of the school year.

    Non-returning Students

    Seniors and other students not returning for the 2019-20 school year must check-in their device prior to the end of the school year, or upon withdrawal from the Shoreline School District. Students that withdraw over the summer must return their device to the IT Department at the Shoreline Center. 18560 1st Ave NE, Shoreline – 206-393-4225.

    Ninth Grade and New Students

    Students new to Shorecrest or Shorewood for the 2019-20 school year will have the opportunity to check-out a Chromebook prior to the start of the school year. Chromebook checkout is schedule for Thursday 8/29/19 at Shorewood and Tuesday 9/3/19 at Shorecrest (times TBD).

    Watch for a communication from your school this summer with additional Chromebook checkout information and links to the required forms. Ninth grade and other new students must complete the Chromebook forms, and pay or waive the technology device fee before they can check-out a Chromebook.

    Full Time Home Use Opt-Out

    All students are expected to check-out a district issued Chromebook. However, parents/guardians may choose to opt- out of student take-home use. Families who opt-out of home use assume responsibility for providing adequate access at home for completion of school assignments. Students who opt-out will be required to pick-up and return their Chromebook to the designated location each day as the device will be required for in-school classroom use. Home Use Opt-Out forms will be available this summer on the district website.

    Summer Home Use Opt-Out

    Families who do not wish to participate in the Summer Chromebook take-home may elect to opt-out. In order to opt-out the attached form must be completed and returned to the school tech office no later than Thursday 6/20/19 along with the student’s Chromebook and accessories. These Chromebooks will be stored at school for the summer. The Chromebook will be available for pickup by students starting on the first day of school.

    Summer Chromebook Support

    There will be no technical support provided for the Chromebooks during summer break. In the event of a student withdrawal, damage, theft, or other loss of the Chromebook please contact the Shoreline School District IT Department by phone: 206-393-4225, or email: chromebook@shorelineschools.org.
