Technology Opt-Out Form

District Technology Opt-Out Form

 

      We live in a global and digital world -- a world changed by technology and new ideas about how we communicate with one another and exchange information. As a result, students must develop the research, information fluency, and technology skills that will allow them to be successful, safe and ethical in this digital world. For this reason, students are provided computer access privileges at school, as well as access to the Internet, email, digital communication and collaboration tools, online learning spaces, and electronic educational resources. These resources, tools, and equipment are essential to teaching and learning. The guidelines for responsible use of these tools are outlined in School Board Procedure 2022P, which can be found here: https://goo.gl/mPQ1qD.  

      Given all of these factors, parents or guardians still do have the right to terminate their student’s access to
electronic tools and resources by signing the District Technology Opt-Out form, which can be found at
http://www.nsd.org/techoptout.  If you do not want your student to use District technology resources, please be aware
that your decision to eliminate access to these tools may significantly affect your student’s ability to work collaboratively with his or her peers on class assignments and projects, and may impact the development of skills necessary to live and work in this increasingly digital world.

      Only complete the form if you choose for your student NOT to use District Technology.  Return the signed form to your school and schedule an appointment to discuss this with your Principal or Designated School Administrator.  After meeting with your Administrator, the Opt-Out request will remain in effect for one school year, and expires at the end of this school year. To keep this Opt-Out in effect, you must complete a new form every school year.  

      If no documentation is on file, it will be assumed that permission has been granted for access to the Internet, GoogleApps for Education, Online Curriculum services, and other online applications and services that have been selected for use by the District, your child’s school, or your child’s teacher.  

Questions about the Opt-Out request can be directed to Principal Vicki Sherwood at (425) 408-7205.
