Kingsport City Schools (KCS) believes that the integration of technology is essential to motivating and engaging students in rigorous and relevant instructional lessons. 1:1 Technology provides the opportunity for anytime/anywhere learning and opens the doors to the critical thinking and problem solving skills that students will need to compete and contribute in our global society. For more information see the Curriculum and Instruction Department.
Your child will have his or her own computing device and accessories (hereafter collectively referred to as “KCS device”) to use in class/school and at home, while enrolled in KCS. Students that have submitted this completed agreement and have the permission of the KCS administration will be allowed to take the KCS device home while enrolled during the school year.
A pattern of careless behavior with the KCS device will have consequences and parent/guardian(s) or staff may rescind this privilege at any time. The complete KCS Responsible Use Policy (RUP) and Student Handbook provide further details for each item below. The RUP and Student handbook can be found to the right of your screen and downloaded. The KCS 1:1 Technology Initiative will become a part of your child's everyday classroom experience and failure to follow the guidelines below and instructions in class can significantly influence this experience.
