Kellenberg Memorial High School recognizes the rapid expansion of modern technology and its benefit to education. It is the focus of Kellenberg Memorial to provide tools and resources for the 21st Century Learner in order to further enrich his/her education. The iPad is the educational tool we have selected in order to help maximize the students’ full potential and prepare them for future endeavors.
We welcome the opportunities presented by the iPad technology and will authorize the use of such devices. Their use will be guided by the KMHS philosophy of Civility, Order, and Respect. The use of these technologies is a privilege that carries responsibility and behavioral expectations consistent with all school rules and policies.
The iPad is issued to the student on a lease to own basis, as such, the device is considered the property of Kellenberg Memorial High School until the student successfully graduates from the school. The iPad will be issued to students according to the guidelines set forth in this document. We retain the right to collect and/or inspect the iPad at any time, and to alter, add or delete installed software. Once received, the iPad is the responsibility of the student. The cost to repair or replace the iPad outside of those covered by AppleCare is the students’ responsibility. All repairs and replacements must be coordinated through the Kellenberg Memorial High School Help Desk.
All students will be assigned an Apple ID. Instructions regarding the Apple ID will be provided during the Triple A Orientation Program.
Taking Care of your iPad
Students are responsible for the general care of the iPad. iPads that are broken or fail to function properly should be taken to the Help Desk for an evaluation of the device. Some general precautions include:
The iPad screen should only be cleaned with either a soft cloth or approved laptop screen cleaning solution available at most electronics store.
Repairing or Replacing the iPad and Accessories
The Kellenberg Memorial Help Desk will assist students in the use and function of the iPad. Please report any issues to the help desk as soon as possible.
Students/parents are not permitted to repair, alter, modify or replace iPads without coordinating through the Kellenberg Memorial High School Help Desk.
Kellenberg facilitates all repairs with Apple.
The following are charges for damaged iPads, including cracked screens. These charges are the student’s responsibility:
Cost of Repairs
Excessive repairs due to neglect or carelessness may become the responsibility of the student. The cost of lost or damaged items such as cases, chargers, and cables are the students responsibility. Any repairs not covered by AppleCare is the students responsibility.
Lost or Stolen iPad
In the event that an iPad is lost, stolen, or damaged please report immediately to the IT Help Desk. The cost of replacing a lost or stolen iPad is the student’s responsibility, in addition to the annual iPad fee. Notification of a missing iPad during non-school hours should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using the iPad at School
Students are required to have a fully charged iPad each day. Individual teachers may impose additional polices for their individual classes.
Students are only permitted to use the iPad on the KMHS-Student Wi-Fi network at school. Use of other networks, personal hotspots, VPN’s, or pairing with other devices / phones is prohibited. Attempts to circumvent network filters will be subject to disciplinary action.
It is the student’s responsibility to ensure the iPad is kept up to date. Updates must be installed at home to avoid down time during school hours.
The iPads will be labeled in the manner specified by the school. iPads can be identified in the following ways:
It is the students’ responsibility to bring the iPad to school each day fully charged. The help desk has a limited supply of chargers for emergency use during the school day. The loaning of chargers is at the discretion of help desk personnel and subject to availability. Students that require a charger will be charged a daily rental fee of $2.00 to cover the cost of supplying and maintaining chargers. iPads must be brought to the help desk when requesting a charger. Chargers must be returned at the end of the school day. Students that repeatedly are unprepared may be subject to disciplinary action.
Screen Savers & Background Photos
Screen savers and background photos must be appropriately selected and cannot violate C.O.R. (Civility Order and Respect).
iPads should be password protected. During Triple A, the students will be encouraged to choose a 4-digit passcode to protect their device. Students are prohibited from sharing this password with anyone else except for their parents/guardians or help desk personnel. iPads must be stored in a secure location (i.e. locked locker) when they must be left unattended.
Students are expected to back up all educational work on the iPad. Kellenberg Memorial High School does not take responsibility for any lost data.
Use of the recording mechanisms of the iPad in class is only permitted with the expressed permission of the teacher in a specific class. Any use of the recording capabilities of the iPad must comply with the C.O.R. (Civility, Order, and Respect) philosophy.
Students may have personal headphones to use in conjunction with the school issued iPad. When using headphones in school, students should be engaged in academic course work. Students may only use headphones in class or study hall with the express permission of the teacher.
Sound, Music, Email, Games, or Programs
Students may have music on the iPad. However, during the school day sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes.
Kellenberg Memorial will provide the student with an @kellenberg.org email address. This is the only email address approved for use on the device. Email is monitored and archived by Kellenberg Memorial High School.
Since the iPad is to be dedicated exclusively for academic work, the following actions are prohibited:
Preloaded apps and materials provided by Kellenberg may not be deleted and they must be updated periodically. Academic content takes precedence over personal files and apps. In case of memory space conflict, personal media/files/apps/music must be removed from the device.
Students may be asked to provide their iPad for inspection at any time. Inappropriate content will be removed and result in disciplinary action by the dean.
