Please Sign Your Student Device Check-Out Form

A Message from Educational Technology


Dear Families,

We are excited to distribute laptops to all middle and high school students this year – and we need your help (and signature)!

This message will help you:

Which students receive laptops?

  • Kulshan, Squalicum, and Options students will be continuing the laptop program.  After a year of staff and student preparation we are excited to distribute laptops to Fairhaven, Shuksan and Whatcom middle schools and Sehome and Bellingham high schools. Laptops will be distributed during the first three weeks of school.
  • Laptops are intended to support district academic programs and will be distributed to students enrolled in classes at our middle and high schools.

Why is a signature necessary to bring laptops home?

  • Students will learn about the district responsible use policy and expectations for laptop use and care prior to receiving a laptop.
  • Before bringing devices home, students and parents/guardians need to sign the Student Device Check-Out Form in Skyward Family Access.
  • This form ensures students and families are aware of the rights and responsibilities for using district provided hardware and programs.

How do we sign?

  • Directions for completing the online form are available here.
  • Paper copies of the form will be available at schools.

  • More information is available on the district website (link) or by contacting your school based educational technology coach.
