Technology for Students
All WCSD will receive a distrct managed device to utilize for Remote Learning. Students will use this device for at home learning and in class learning in the event we toggle to in-person learning.
Transitional Kindergarten through First Grade students are assigned an iPad, while all second through eighth grade students are assigned a Chromebook. Each school site arranged for device distribution to families. Students are required to use district devices for all school purposes as these devices are regularly updated with safety software and updated applications through the district device management system.
To ensure the effective implementation of Remote Learning, teachers will utilize designated online platforms to complete the following: communicate learning expectations, deliver instruction, collect and return student work, communicate student progress, and provide academic support.
Please submit any technology needs to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Student Privacy, Safety, and Digital Citizenship
While your child is working from home, it's important to ensure proper supervision of technology use. If your child is logged into a district-issued Chromebook using assigned Walnut Creek School District Google accounts (@walnutcreeksd.org), browsing is filtered to limit access to appropriate sites. Our best efforts to filter student browsing while off-campus is not a substitute for parental oversight of student work to ensure they are compliant with Digital Citizenship guidelines and Walnut Creek School District's Board policy for Student Use of Technology.
Please review Student Use of Technology Board Policy (BP 163.4) with your child.
Parents too have responsibilities to adhere to appropriate Digital Citizenship. Please follow these guidelines:
- Do not take pictures or screenshots of online activities that include students other than your own.
- Do not interact with others through your child's SeeSaw or Google Classroom as these platforms are reserved for student/teacher interaction only.
- Ensure your child adheres to Digital Citizenship expectations. You may review the Digital Citizenship slides on the right with your child.
