iPads for All (1:1)
Lakeville Area Schools is implementing its Empowering Learning Educational Technology Plan, which was approved by the Board of Education. Part of this plan includes providing a 7th generation iPad for every student in the district. By providing all students with the same device, Lakeville Area Schools reduces the disparity in type, quality and capability of the devices students have access to in their classrooms and at home. During the COVID-19 pandemic, providing a device for each student will also ensure the district meets CDC recommendations, which indicate that electronic devices should not be shared between students.
Having a district-issued iPad for learning is exciting, and comes with its own set of responsibilities. We ask that you review our iPad Family Handbook to learn more about taking care of your device, using your device, the acceptable use, what to do if your device is damaged, lost or stolen and more.
If you have any questions, email Tracy Brovold, Director of Technology, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer iPad Use
Students have the option to keep their iPads through the summer. This is beneficial for students in summer learning programs. It also empowers students to continue learning on their own by having access to high quality digital resources including curriculum-specific tools and eBooks.
Three Easy Steps to Keep District-Issued iPad Over Summer Break
- Read the Acceptable Use Policy
- Read the iPad Loan Agreement
- Sign the district Family/Student Agreement for iPad Use form, confirming you have read and accept your responsibilities. Please complete one form per student by June 3.
Choosing to Turn in iPad
Students who do not want to keep an iPad over the summer, students who are graduating and students who are not attending Lakveville Area Schools the next school year will need to turn in their device. This includes turning in the iPad, charger, charing cable and mobile hotspot if they have one at the end of the school year.
