Approximately 600 students received iPads each semester. Students in a yearlong course will keep the iPad for the entire school year. Students in a semester course will turn in their iPads at the end of the semester.
Students were given an iPad and training during the first two weeks of the school year. Students and their parent/guardian are required to sign an Acceptable Use Policy before students can be given an iPad. This policy outlines what students are allowed and not allowed to do with the iPads.
iPads will be treated similar to how textbooks are treated, students will be checked out a specific device while they are enrolled in the pilot course. When the course is over, the student is required to return the iPad to the school. There are no financial obligations for this pilot program unless a student loses or damages their iPad.
