iPad Ordering Process & Policy

iPad Ordering Process

Note: Please contact the school directly for more information on ordering iPads for students.

iPad Acceptable Use Policy and Guidelines

The usage of individual iPads empowers students to improve their
self-initiated learning and collaboration, and prepare them for further studies and the workplace. A dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended community enhances student learning. Technology does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. On the contrary, it transforms the teacher from a director of learning to a facilitator of learning. Effective teaching and learning with iPads integrates technology into the curriculum at anytime and anyplace.

Taking Care of Your iPad
Students are responsible for the general care of the iPad they bring. It is the responsibility of the child to take care of their iPad. iPads that are broken or fail to work properly should be fixed as soon as possible to resume daily work.

General Precautions
• The iPad is the student’s property and should be treated with respect and care.
• Only use a clean, soft cloth to clean the screen. Do not use cleansers of any type.
• Cords and cables must be inserted carefully into the iPad to prevent damage.
• iPads must never be left in an unattended backpack, unlocked car or any unsupervised area.
• Students are responsible for keeping their iPad’s battery charged for each college day.
• Students must keep their iPad in a protective casing at all times.

Damaged iPads
• iPads that are broken or fail to work should be fixed as soon as possible.

Carrying iPads
• Be careful in selecting a suitable case for your iPad. Make sure the case has sufficient padding to protect the iPad from normal treatment and provide a suitable means for moving personal belongings within the school. The guidelines below should be followed:
• iPads must always be within the protective case.
• Protective cases should cover all corners of the device and provide front and back protection.
• Some carrying cases can hold other objects (such as folders and workbooks), but these should be kept to a minimum to avoid placing too much pressure and weight on the iPad screen.

Screen Care
• The iPad screens can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. Screens and corners are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure.
• Do not lean on the top of the iPad when it is closed.
• Do not place anything near the iPad that could put pressure on the screen.
• Do not place anything in the carrying case that will press against the cover.
• Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or anti‐static cloth. Use of harsh chemicals WILL damage the screen.
• Do not “bump” the iPad against lockers, walls, car doors, floors, etc. as it will eventually break the screen.

iPad Repairs
To ensure any repairs to iPads does not void the manufacturer’s (Apple) warranty:
• Students should never attempt to repair an iPad.
• Repairs should only be completed at an Authorised Apple Service Provider or contact PRA Imaging.
