Prior to the use of any computing devices (Chromebooks, iPads, or any other computer) by a student, LPS must gather an acknowledgement from the students’ parent or legal guardian that they confirm their understanding of a few things.
This parental acknowledgement is gathered once per grade band (elementary, middle, high school) per student.
If a parent returns the paperwork to school with a “NO” response, a building administrator will contact the parents to discuss the impact this may have on their child’s learning environment.
The form signed by parents is slightly different at elementary than secondary schools, due to the difference in use of student devices. Secondary students take devices home at night, elementary students do not.
Students are also challenged to make responsible use of the technology they are assigned through a Responsible Use Agreement.
If you have any follow-up questions about the learning technology used in LPS classrooms, please reach out to your school Principal or use the “Questions and Comments” button on the front of the LPS website (www.lps.org).
