3 Using Your iPad at School

iPads are intended for use at school each day. In addition to teacher expectations for iPad use, school messages, announcements, calendars, and schedules may be accessed using the iPad. Students are responsible for bringing their iPad to all classes, unless specifically instructed not to do so by their teacher.

3.1 iPads Left at Home

If students leave their iPad at home, they are responsible for getting the coursework completed as if they had their iPad present.

3.2 iPad Undergoing Repair

When an iPad is damaged and returned to the school for repair, upon receipt of the deductible payment or damage repair or replacement fees, a replacement iPad will be issued in its place (pending availability).

iPads that are fully functional but may have cosmetic damage such as bends, dents and scratches may not be immediately repaired.

3.3 Charging your iPad’s Battery

iPads must be brought to school each day adequately charged to work throughout the school day. Students need to charge their iPads each evening by plugging them into an electrical wall outlet only.

3.4 Screensavers/Background Photos

Inappropriate media may not be used as a screensaver, background photo or placed under the clear protective back of the case.

Presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials, inappropriate language, alcohol, drug, gang-related symbols or pictures will result in disciplinary actions.

3.5 Home Internet Access

Students are allowed to set up wireless networks on their iPads. This will assist them with iPad use while at home. However, District policy 524-Technology Acceptable Use and Safety Policy must also be followed when using the device outside of the District network.
