Student iPads will be managed by the district. Approved apps will be available through our self-service portal. Decisions about what apps and content should be placed in the portal will be based on requests by teachers and departments and updates will be made on an ongoing basis. iPads are configured to access the Internet through our school’s Internet filtering system whether they connect from school or at home, limiting exposure to inappropriate web content.
No. School owned iPads are specifically configured and managed to enhance functionality and student safety. Our educational team has carefully chosen a suite of apps to support student learning. Having a consistent platform will enable our teachers to create an effective learning environment.
The iPad is an academic tool to be used in the classroom under teacher supervision. iPads are not to be taken out or used in bathrooms or locker rooms
Students will have access to their Google Drives from their iPad devices. Work that can be synchronized with Google Drive should be stored there and will be available for access from any Internet-enabled computer or tablet device. Part of the students’ initial orientation will cover Google Drive use. Students may also share and collaborate on work stored in Google Drive. Students may use iCloud, as well, if they choose.
