Your child has the option of bringing their own device or using a district-provided device. To support our planning, this form needs to be completed for each student by September 23 , 2016. If you have multiple children in our school, you will have the option to submit another form upon completion.
You and your child will also be asked to review and indicate an understanding of technology policies related to the use of mobile computing devices and the West Bloomfield School District WiFi network. Please take the time to go through each policy with your child/children. These policies are designed to support a robust, 1:1 learning environment while also ensuring the safety and protection of our students.
If you did not give permission for your child to receive a Google account during the 2016-2017 school year or you are new to the West Bloomfield School District, you will also be asked to provide a digital signature for your child to receive a secure account. This will allow them to access educational tools and resources provided in the Google for Education suite. The access and functionality of the Google Account complies with all federal legislation around privacy and internet safety. After we receive your permission, your child will receive a unique username and password under the wbsd.org domain.
This username and password will allow your child to:
→ Access Google Drive (docs, slides, sheets, forms, drawings, classroom)
→ Access Gmail, calendar, contacts (within the WBSD domain)
→ Access the internet through the West Bloomfield School District and Oakland Schools
Thank you in advance for your time and please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or need additional information.
