Note: Chromebook forms must be completed before a student can checkout a Chromebook. See below for more information regarding the required forms.
The Chromebook program fee for the 2023-24 school year is $35. This is an annual fee and applies to all 6th-12th grade students who take a Chromebook home. The Chromebook fee is payable via the online payment system. Additional Chromebook fees may apply for lost or damaged equipment. Please review the Chromebook checkout agreement for a list of these fees.
The 2023-24 Chromebook program checkout forms will be available in ParentSquare prior to the checkout date at your student's school. You will receive an email, and/or a notification via the ParentSquare app when the forms are ready. Forms must be completed before a student is allowed to check out a Chromebook.
Returning students will also need to have an updated Chromebook checkout form completed in Parent Square for the 2023-24 school year.
Opt Out (In-School Only Option)
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 (may not be taken home). Please note that the district doesn't have a BYOD (bring your own device) program and personal devices may not be substituted for district provided Chromebooks.
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.
Web Filtering and Monitoring
The Shoreline School District provides web filtering for 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. Inappropriate web browsing may result in activities getting flagged and automatically reported to district staff for investigation. We do provide an option for more restrictive web filtering off our network if that becomes required. To request additional filtering, please complete the Off Campus Restricted Access form and return to your school's tech office.
Shoreline staff have the ability to monitor and manage student Chromebook usage during class. This ability is limited to school hours and only applies to district provided Chromebooks on the school district network. If you would like to monitor and/or put restrictions on internet access on your student's Chromebook, you can enroll in the District's home monitoring tool at https://shoreline.portal.
