Can iPads be charged at school?

Do you have to have internet at home?
No. While it may be beneficial, it will not prohibit students from completing their assignments.

Are they able to use All printers?
Students may have access to be able to print but they will not have access to all printers. Part of the reason that we are going to iPads is to go as paperless as possible.

Are students able to keep iPads over the summer?
Students may keep their iPads over the summer unless discipline issues have occurred utilizing the device. In these instances, the administration may maintain the device over the break.

How do we keep students safe online?
Part of the emphasis of using iPads is to teach responsible usage. However, parents and guardians are responsible for reinforcing the safe usage of the iPads for their sons or daughters while they use them off campus.
