Access to Technology and the Internet

In service of equity, we are committed to ensuring all K-12 students have a device and Internet access. This applies to all students, regardless of the instructional model you selected (temporary remote/hybrid or virtual). We issued iPads to students in grades K-1 and laptops to students in grades 2-12. This provides all students access to continued learning, engagement and connection opportunities.

Added Nov. 10: The Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) announced their K-12 Internet Access Program which connects eligible students in need to Internet access at home with no cost to the student or their family. Learn more.


Student Device Setup Guides

Here are setup guides to help students get started with their district-issued iPads and laptops.

Help with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is our Learning Management System (LMS). It is a communication and collaboration platform used by all K-12 teachers. Students join class meetings, access and submit assignments, and connect with classmates and educators. Explore the resources below.
