Student learning is at the heart of all we do at Flagler Schools. It is our belief that student learning is enhanced through the integration of technology with a strong curriculum, led by excellent teachers. Technology allows students and teachers to use a “hands on” approach which is relevant to today’s learning. By approving the Half-Cent Sales Tax, the community has given Flagler Schools the opportunity to provide our students with digital tools to help actively engage them in learning.
Flagler Schools will leverage the full range of technology and digital resources to guarantee that students are immersed in personalized, rigorous, and relevant learning experiences that foster 21st-century skills across disciplines to ensure college and career readiness. In an effort to provide our students with the tools they need for the future, Flagler Schools has implemented the "Digital Learning Movement."
Student Device Distribution
All 4th–12th grade, and iFlagler students are required to complete the Digital Learning Movement Registration annually. Families must complete this registration before a device can be issued each year. Students may complete the registration themselves if they are of legal age.
Once the parent/guardian has completed the annual online registration, a device and charger will be distributed during the school day and will remain in the classroom.
Once the parent/guardian has completed the annual online registration, a device and charger will be distributed annually. Students will be able to take the device and charger home. It is strongly recommended that the device be charged overnight and the chargers stay at home.

All technology assigned by the school district (such as laptops, tablets, and associated chargers) to students in grades 4–12 must be returned upon graduation or withdrawal from the school district.
Flagler Schools collects devices from all students annually, typically immediately before or after the start of summer break, to ensure that devices are up-to-date and in good working condition for the following school year. Announcements are made several weeks prior to the collection date to give students ample opportunity to complete any unfinished coursework before turning in their device.
Through the T-Mobile Project 10 Million Program, we can enable all students access to distance learning by providing free wireless service to connect low-income students who do not have reliable home Internet service. This program is available for any student in grades K–12 who are part of the National School Lunch program. Qualifying students will receive the Wi-Fi Hotspot to use with their student device (limited devices are available).
- Area coverage and available data are based on provider services
- If you were previously issued a hotspot and lost or did not return it, we will not be able to issue you another device until the device is returned or the replacement fee is paid
- Previous replacement fees for lost hotspots and charging cables must be paid
- The student must be eligible for the National School Lunch Program
- The student must not have access to reliable internet service at home
To apply for a hotspot through the T-Mobile Project 10 Million Program, families should complete the Student WiFi Hotspot Request Form. Students must be signed in to their school Google account to complete the form.
The technology usage fee has been waived for the 2022–23 school year. Any previous outstanding fines will not be waived.
Flagler Schools has partnered with MySchoolBucks to accept technology usage fee payments. The technology department uses this system to inform parents/guardians and students of any outstanding technology fees and charges. Emails will be sent to families who have outstanding balances. Please visit the Payments page for information about creating and managing a MySchoolBucks account.
Families experiencing economic hardship may apply for financial assistance using the Technology Scholarship Eligibility Verification Form. Scholarships are limited and based on available funding. If families are not eligible, they may be referred to additional resources.
