Did you or your student check out a district laptop for the 2021-2022 school year?
Just like textbooks, team uniforms and other school property issued to your child for school purposes, there is a responsibility to take care of school property. We know accidents and/or loss may happen, even when students intend to take good care of the device. In these instances, district policies and state regulations require a ﬁne be levied to cover the repair or replacement cost of district property. Due to the high replacement cost of a laptop, the Snohomish School District is offering a Technology Protection Plan for the 2021-2022 school year.
The district’s 2021-2022 Technology Protection Plan is an opt-in plan, with payment due at time of opting in. Plan enrollment fees must be paid at the time of opting in to activate the protection plan. Payment should be made by Friday, October 1. Payment can be made through the district's Touchbase online payment system and instructions are provided in the forms below. For those who prefer to make the $30 opt-in payment in-person, please contact your school bookkeeper or main office.
Last evening (September 20, 2021) on KING 5, there was an investigation report regarding statewide K-12 school HVAC systems. In their investigation, data from the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) shows that nearly 800 school buildings across the state have “poor” ratings for their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The data used to create the report was self-submitted by school districts. Snohomish School District submitted its data during the 2018-2019 school year. Districts submit scores regarding their heating systems, HVAC distribution and ventilation. We are unaware how KING 5 formulated its database and overall scores using those three data points.
