ATTENTION FAMILIES OF STUDENTS WHO HAVE BEEN ISSUED A SCHOOL CHROMEBOOK
In order to best prepare for our continuity of learning during these uncertain times we ask that you keep your school issued Chromebook until further notice. We also ask that you understand Chromebooks represent a considerable investment of school funds and so we need your assistance with maintaining the proper working conditions of the devices by keeping the battery of your device charged throughout the summer months. When the Chromebook is left unplugged for extended periods of time the battery loses its charge and ceases to work; the replacement costs of a battery is approximately $70 and will be billed to the family as outlined in the Chromebook Use Policy.
The Ballston Spa Central School District can only guarantee the safety of your child's digital footprint and identity if he/she/they are using one of the district-approved applications located in the Scottie's Dashboard. The use of other websites/applications is at the discretion of the parent. We strongly encourage you to read the Privacy Policies of any non-district approved applications to ensure that your child's identity is properly protected. As a District, we will remain especially vigilant about cyber-security in the weeks and months ahead.
