Digital Resources for Students

ISD strives to have classrooms that provide Digital Learning Experiences where ALL students can:

  • access, engage with, create, and produce using technological tools
  • have agency and ownership over their learning, and 
  • use technology to engage with the world in meaningful ways.

Through the support of our local capital/technology levy, ISD schools are equipped with the hardware and software necessary to provide equitable and safe digital resources for students. All classrooms are outfitted with a teaching station which includes a computer, large display (projector/TV), and document camera. Audio amplification is available in 80% of our classrooms and will be in 100% of the instructional spaces within the next 5 years. Beginning with the 2022-23 school year, student access to laptops is as follows:

  • Kindergarten classrooms one laptop for every three students.
  • First and Second-grade classrooms one laptop for every two students.
  • Third through Fifth-grade classrooms one laptop for every student.
  • Students in grades six through twelve check out a school laptop for the duration of the school year.

Student safety is paramount; to that end, ISD uses filtering software to limit access to inappropriate content and security software that monitors all types of information on Microsoft365 cloud products, including student email and documents.

In addition to hardware, a variety of software and apps are used to support and enhance learning. These resources are organized through Student Portals and Learning Management Systems. Select the link below that matches the grade level of your student.

Technology Tools for Students

Learning tools and resources vary by class and teacher. Students access the majority of their online resources through Clever (K-5) or Canvas & Classlink (6-12). Information about some of the tools used in our schools can be found below.

As part of the Issaquah School District’s commitment to preparing students for success, the ISD Educational Technology Department prioritizes the development of digital citizenship and personal safety skills. Through the ISD bulletin, we hope to provide more information about technology for students in ISD and resources for families as they navigate parenting a child in the digital age.

The Issaquah School District is seeking interested individuals to serve on our new Technology Advisory Committee. The committee will review the district's Technology Plan, provide feedback and expertise on our goals, and inform future planning.  We are seeking middle and high school students, district staff, school administrators, and parents/guardians. In addition, we would like to have technology industry representation, area employers, and community members.  

Safety and Security Icon for Announcements

As part of our ongoing commitment to provide a safe learning environment, the Issaquah School District has long partnered with Gaggle, a software monitoring system that enhances student safety and promotes responsible digital citizenship. While district staff only moderate alerts during school hours, Gaggle representatives operate around the clock.

Parents and guardians of middle and high school students have access to Canvas as an “Observer.” Canvas is our Learning Management System for students in grades 6-12. In Canvas, the "Observer" role provides parents and guardians an account to monitor their student's progress in their courses as well as support their students' learning at home.
