Viking Connect

Prior to your arrival, you will need to complete several online forms including a student responsibility form, a parent responsibility form, a student acceptable use policy, a device monitoring acknowledgment, and the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) form.  You will also need to pay a $25 technology fee to cover the damage or repair of your child’s device.  Families who are on free or reduced lunch will have a reduced fee of $15.  The forms and payment must be submitted prior to your device pick up.  

Viking Connect Devices
The District is equipped to provide uniform devices to every student so that learning can be accessed at home and at school.  While parents may have devices at home, we would encourage you to participate in the Viking Connect initiative.  Should you choose to opt out of this program, please contact your school principal.
Why opting out is discouraged:
A parent/guardian may choose to decline a 1:1 device for their child(ren) ONLY if they decide to provide a personally purchased device to their student. 

An important consideration: Should your child opt-out and choose to use a personally owned device instead, please understand that software (apps) purchased by the District may not be available or distributed to personally owned devices. Students who opt-out will not receive technical support of any kind for any personally owned devices. It will be the responsibility of the parent/guardian & student to ensure the device is working properly and effectively every day.
