Technology Opt-Out Form
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.
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.
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.
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.
