Mobile Access for Students

The Mobile Access for Students program ensures students learn the information and communication technology skills in the LWSD student profile. The program was piloted in 2010 and implemented district-wide in 2012. This program is possible thanks to technology levies passed by voters.

Lake Washington School District strives to ensure academic success for all students by closing opportunity gaps. We do this by providing equitable and inclusive working and learning environments for all students, families, staff and communities. The MAS program is one example of how we provide equitable learning environments for all students.

What do students and families need to know about this program?

Every student in Lake Washington School District middle and high schools will be issued a laptop computer in the fall. Students are responsible for the specific laptop they are issued. They must turn it in at the end of the school year. Before a student is issued a laptop, parents will need to read and sign the agreement form. If you decline to sign the form, your student will use a laptop at school but will not be allowed to take it home.
