  • 1. Lynnfield High School Media Center Amazon KindlePermissions and Acceptable Use FormIntroductionThe Amazon Kindle is a convenient, portable reading device. It is the size of a paperback and capable of holding up to1,500 books. A student can highlight sections of text, make notes anywhere in the text, or even make a clipping of theentire page if desired – it all shows up under ‘clippings’, for easy retrieval later. In addition, unfamiliar words can beinstantly defined using the onboard dictionary. The chance to use this device is a privilege that we are able to provide tostudents in this class provided that the students use extra caution and responsibility. Each Kindle is valued at $190.00. Forthis reason we require a parental signature before a Kindle can be assigned to a student.Parent Responsibilities and PermissionI am authorizing the assignment of a Kindle to my child.
