District, King County Library Increase Access to Online Resources
The Snoqualmie Valley School District and King County Library System (KCLS) have formed a new partnership in an effort to increase student access to online resources.
KCLS will be creating special library accounts in its system for all SVSD students so they may seamlessly log in from school, home or from any computer or device. The special student accounts will:
Be easy for students to remember. The account number will utilize each student’s school ID number preceded by the school district number (410).
Give each student seamless access. Students will be able to use the array of databases, downloadable materials and online homework help services offered by KCLS without needing a physical card.
Not accrue fines or fees. Since students will only be able to access electronic materials, it won’t be necessary for students to track due dates.
Students who already have a traditional KCLS library cards will continue to be able to use them to checkout materials from the public library and use in-library computers. This new arrangement will supplement the traditional library card and improve each student’s ability to access KCLS online research tools as part of his/her schoolwork.
Teachers throughout the District will be able to utilize the many resources available through KCLS to complement their curriculum and build students’ experience and expertise utilizing library resources.
It is important to note that when this access is used in the Snoqualmie Valley School District, the resources will be filtered for content appropriate for school. If the access is used outside the District, the resources are not filtered for content.
KCLS will automatically launch the accounts in mid-January for Snoqualmie Valley students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.
If families do not wish their children to be included in the program, they may opt out by logging into Family Access and completing the "KCLS Opt Out form" by January 6, 2017.
