Parents must complete this iPad Agreement for each child before receiving the device.
What families are eligible to take home a device?
All students grades K through 12.
What are iPads?
An iPad is a tablet that functions much like a smart phone, but with laptop capabilities. They are built to start quickly and have a long battery life. They store all resources and files on the web (cloud based) and integrate with Apple Apps.
Why are we giving iPads to students?
Having a personal device can help make education more student-centered by putting the resources of the Web in the hands of our students and allowing access to files anywhere, any time. They extend learning beyond the classroom walls; foster collaboration, creativity, and innovation; embrace the uniqueness of each individual by allowing varied approaches to demonstrate learning; and motivate students to become active learners.
What are the student expectations?
Students are expected to treat the iPad with respect, keep it in good working condition, use it for school related learning activities. Students are expected to bring their iPads to school each day, fully charged.
What happens if the child forgets his/her iPad or home or the device has not been charged?
The student should report to his/her building office. The secretary will provide a loaner for the day and record the student’s name. The student must return the iPad to the office at the end of the day. If the behavior persists, iPad privileges will be revoked as recommended by the building principal.
Is the iPad monitored in any way?
All iPads are managed through our iPad software system. If an iPad is lost or stolen, the District can lock down and track the device. Students will not have the ability to add or delete apps on the iPad.
What happens if the iPad breaks or is stolen?
A student should report all problems/issues to his/her building office. The secretary in each office will make a record of the issue and report to the principal or assistant principal.
