Technology for Students

Required Technology Consent Policy and Acknowledgements

Tech for Students - Actions

In order for students to utilize District software or any technology resources (devices, digital textbooks, etc.), there are three actions that need to be completed at the beginning of each school year:

  1. Families must choose whether to participate in the Device Damage and Loss Protection Program.
  2. A parent or guardian must provide consent for each student to use District software and resources. 
  3. Each student and a Parent/Guardian must review and agree to the Acceptable Use Policies.

Before the start of the school year, you will receive a communication via ParentSquare (https://www.parentsquare.com/signin) with the Required Technology Consent and Device Protection Program Participation Form (required for all students).

If you elect to participate in the Protection Program (optional, but highly recommended), then you will need to finish enrollment and pay through the InTouch payment system. These steps must be completed before the listed deadlines.

Please note: Click the InTouch Payment System button above to enter the Portal to enroll and pay (or submit a low-income fee waiver) for the Device Damage and Loss Protection Program. The first time you enter the Portal, you will need to set a password - your ParentVUE password will not work.  Please click the Step-by-Step Instructions button above to help guide you through each process.
