One-to-One Technology Program
The Board of Trustees intends that technological resources provided by the district be used in a safe, responsible, and proper manner in support of the instructional program and for the advancement of student learning. The District Student and Family Handbook, distributed to every parent/guardian during the proof of residency/enrollment process, outlines the Student Responsible Use Agreements. It is included in this handbook for easy reference. This handbook can also be found on the district website (www.santaclarausd.org).
Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD) views the use of electronic resources as central to the delivery of its educational program and expects that all students will use electronic resources as an essential part of their learning experience. It is the policy of SCUSD to maintain an environment that promotes ethical and responsible conduct in all electronic resource activities. With this privilege comes responsibility for the parent and for the student.
When affirming the Parent/Student Mobile Device Agreement you are acknowledging that you permit your student to take a district issued Chromebook home.
