Sisters School District views the use of electronic resources as central to the delivery of its educational program. By providing each school student a chromebook computer to use at school and at home, Sisters School District intends to enable an engaging, collaborative, self‐directed, and empowering learning environment. It is the District’s goal that students will safely learn, share, collaborate, think critically and solve problems to succeed in a modern, digital world. In addition, educational technology has been proven to promote student engagement and enthusiasm for learning, ultimately assisting students in their acquisition of knowledge and thinking skills.
Students are expected to responsibly use district technology and network resources, keeping their district‐issued devices safe, secure and in good working order. The information in this handbook outlines each party’s responsibilities and will assist students and parents in meeting these expectations.

Chromebook Damage or Loss
In the event of damage or loss, contact school staff immediately. Any technical issue with the device must be reported to the school main office in order to avoid further damage. Additionally, in the event of theft or damage due to criminal activity, families should notify local law enforcement.
Regardless of the cause of damage or malfunction, SSD Technical Support is available to assist students with getting issues resolved quickly. Bring the chromebook to the school main office and provide a description of the issue. If it is determined that a device needs extensive repair, Technology Office staff will swap out the student’s device with an operable one. DO NOT TAKE SSD owned devices to an outside computer service for repair.
