  • 17-18 MWHS Chromebook Opt Out Pilot

    Due to the changing needs of students and technology, starting with the 17-18 school year Mound Westonka High School will be piloting a Opt Out Program. Families who believe a personal device is a better educational option may apply to opt out of the 1:1 and bring their own device. This pilot program will be limited to 25 students as we explore the impact on MWHS.

    Opt Out Criteria
    Families who are interested in opting out must agree to and meet the following criteria:

    • Provide an educational device which can access Google Apps. Schoology and all other Westonka
      technology. This device could be a tablet, Chromebook or laptop, but CANNOT BE a phone.
    • Adhere to all district technology policies and only use device for educational purposes avoiding any
      disruptions and distraction to the learning.
    • Agree to have a functioning and fully charged device everyday. Chromebook loaners will not be
      provided to students in the opt out program during the 17-18 school year.
    • Be comfortable troubleshooting my own hardware and software issues.
    • Make arrangements with teachers and media staff in advance of testing days to secure a testing device.
    • Willing to give feedback on the program via survey, focus groups or other means.

    Students and families who are interested in being considered for the 1:1 Opt Out Program must complete the 17-18 Chromebook Opt Out Form by August 18th​. Students who are selected will be notified by August 23rd Fast Start.
