Request to Opt Student Out of School Internet Access

As the parent or legal guardian of ______________________________, a minor, I wish to opt _________________________________________ out of accessing the Internet at school. I understand that in doing so, I may prevent my child from accessing the Internet-based instructional materials and activities that will be available to his or her classmates. The Smyth County School System will provide alternative activities for children whose parents do not wish them to access the Internet; however, the Smyth County School Board cannot ensure that these activities will provide the same richness and depth of experience that access to the Internet can provide. Please note that this opt-out form does not opt your child out of Smyth County's online SOL assessment program. Online SOL assessments are delivered across the Internet through special software that only allows the student to access the SOL test questions.
