Student Use

Student Use of the iPad

1. The iPad is the property of St. Pius X Regional School and, as a result, may be seized and reviewed at any time. The student should have NO expectation of privacy of materials found on an iPad or a school supplied/supported email service.  Students will be selected at random to provide their iPad for inspection.

2. The iPad comes equipped with both a front and rear facing camera and video capacities. As with all recording devices, students must ask permission before recording an individual or group. Students must obtain school permission to publish a photograph or video of any school related activity.  Unless required for an assignment, the camera will remain turned off.

3. Students are responsible for bringing their iPad to school every day unless otherwise directed by a staff member. Failure to bring an iPad or any other class material(s) does not release the student from their responsibility for class work. If a student repeatedly fails to bring materials to class, including an iPad, the student will be subject to disciplinary action.

4. The iPad is designed for daily use; therefore, each iPad must be charged and ready for use each school day. A student’s repeated failure to bring their iPad charged may result in disciplinary action.

5. While personalized screens or backgrounds are permitted, inappropriate or provocative images including but not limited to pornographic images, weapons, inappropriate language, threatening language, drugs, alcohol, or gang related images are not permitted and such behavior will result in disciplinary action.

6. The iPad affords limited electronic storage space. As with all electronic files, it is good practice to back up, duplicate, or archive files to an independent storage space.

7. The school issued iPad is designed as a tool for learning; misuse of the iPad will result in disciplinary action.

8. All students should recognize and guard their personal and private information. While on the Internet, students shall not reveal personal information, including a home address or phone number, or the address or phone numbers of other students.

9. St. Pius X Regional School encourages students to take their iPad home at night for class work and recharging. All care, handling and appropriate use that is in effect during the school day shall extend to the use of the iPad at home.

10. School issued software applications (apps) are needed for student learning and should not be deleted.

11. Students are not allowed to install any applications (apps) on the device.  We have put in place measures to disable the ability to install apps; however there have been methods in the past that bypass these restrictions. If you bypass this restriction in any manner, you will face disciplinary actions.

12. Modifying or removing the settings/profiles of the school issued iPad or deleting school issued software applications apps(s) may result in student discipline and/or the need for reformatting at a cost to the student.

13. Email is to be used solely for educational purposes. Although the device is capable of email, and we provide an email address, large group emails, and abuse of email is not allowed. Abuse includes but is not limited to harassment, unnecessary emails throughout the school day, and overuse of email.

14. St. Pius X Regional School makes no guarantee, written or implied, that materials on the iPad, including student work, will be safe from deletion or corruption, accidental or otherwise.

15. The iPad is for school use only. It is not intended to be taken out of the state, to the beach or otherwise on vacation with you. Doing this against our recommendation will void your insurance, and will result in the iPad being taken away indefinitely. Contact your teacher for alternate methods of completing assignments, they will work with you.
