SCS | Important Technology Updates for the Academic Year 2023

As we gear up for another exciting academic year, we’d like to share some important updates about the use of technology in our schools.

Technology Fee for the Year

Streetsboro City Schools prides itself on providing the best and latest technology resources for our students. To help maintain this, there’s an annual Technology Fee of $50.

This contribution ensures that students have access to the most up-to-date Chromebooks, software, and digital resources that are both safe and effective for learning.

Deadline: Please make sure to settle this fee by Friday, 9/15/2023.

Payments are easily made online via our parent portal or directly at the school office. If you have any concerns about this fee or need financial assistance, please contact your school building’s front office. We’re here to help!

Technology Fee FAQ

  • If my student uses their own device, will we still owe the tech fee? NO – If they get a personal device approved BEFORE 9/15, you will not owe the fee for this year. The device MUST meet the minimum specifications (see below).

Using Personal Devices in School

We understand the value of integrating technology into our curriculum. That’s why Streetsboro City Schools allows students to bring their own devices for educational purposes.

If your child is considering using their own device, it’s essential to ensure that it meets our minimum safety and compatibility standards.

Important: The last day to get these personal devices reviewed and approved by our Technology Department is Friday, 9/15.

Beyond this date, we’ll only permit using school-provided devices during school hours. If you need your device approved, please check-in with the district’s Media Specialist in any of our buildings.
