STUDENT IPADS

Student Issued iPads

 

DIGITAL LEARNING 1:1 PROGRAM
We welcome to this year the introduction of our 1:1 iPad implementation. Each student will be assigned a district owned iPad to use during his or her middle school experience. We are very excited as to how this will improve student learning and creativity.
An iPad permission slip is mandatory. This signed document must be received before your son/daughter is able to receive an iPad. Insurance is offered for $20 per year to cover replacement of the iPad or damage to the screen. Individual replacement costs for the cover ($15), charging brick ($10) or charging cord ($10).
In order to ensure that this process is a smooth one, please read through the following:
1. All students will be issued an iPad, cord and case.
2. All rules associated with the iPad will be reviewed with students in advance.
3. All students will be directed to put their name on their case. The number of their iPad will be recorded and stored.
4. Students will turn the iPad in at the end of each school year. They will receive the same iPad the following school year up until they enter high school.
5. Students will be allowed to take their iPads home during the school year as directed by core teachers.
6. Students are asked to keep their chargers at home, however, there are places to charge iPads at school as well.
7. iPads that are damaged will be assessed for damages that are intentional or as a result of negligent. It is important for the student to know that they should take proper care of their iPad. Students who neglect or intentionally damage their iPad will be responsible for the cost of repairing it.
8. Time will be allowed during school to complete most of the homework that is assigned. Students will be allowed to take their assigned iPad home to complete homework as needed.
9. At school the iPads will be filtered from inappropriate content, at home they will not be filtered.

IMPORTANT INFO FOR PARENTS

IPAD PROXY FILTERING CHANGES FOR HOME USE

ipad (1)

Parents were recently notified by email, Family Access and by regular mail for those parents who do not have email access,  of changes to the student iPad proxy filtering while away from school.  The changes took place on October 30, 2015.  These changes were made because the current proxy filtering creates significant interference with learning activities both at school and away from school.

The district realizes that technology safety is of real concern for our families.  If parents would like to set appropriate filtering controls to their child’s iPad when they are using it at home,  please call the Longfellow/LDI school office at 789-7670 ext 0 or 1 and the office administrative assistants will assist you.  Please feel free to call school if you have any questions or concerns.
