Information and Data Privacy

As a district, we wish to be transparent in how we handle and manage information and data on the internet. We also wish to share what processes are in place to protect student and educator data while using school provided accounts.

With the implementation of G Suite for Education (Google Accounts), the district relies on Google's commitment to products that help protect student and teacher privacy.  G Suite for Education provides a distinct Privacy and Security agreement that differs from personal Google accounts.

1:1 Technology Plan

The below information is in regards to the Lakewood City Schools distribution of devices.

Beginning with the 2020-2021 school year, all Lakewood City Schools students in first grade through twelfth grade will receive a district issued 1:1 Chromebook. These Chromebooks will be issued in four year cycles. Students will keep these Chromebooks in their possession through out the year including breaks and the summer months. Students will have to turn these devices into the school district upon withdrawal.
