Summer Device Opt-In Opportunity

Summer Device Opt-In Opportunity

To support continuous learning over the summer, students who have completed grades 3 through 11 will be eligible to take their district issued device home over the summer months and keep it through the school year. This will empower students to experience more learning opportunities even when they are not in the presence of a teacher. For students who want to take advantage of this opportunity, digital content will be provided by the district and hosted in Schoology. It is an "opt-in" model, meaning that if students would like to participate, they will need a new iLearn agreement signed by parents/guardians. The new iLearn agreements will be handed out via hard copy at individual schools.
