INTRODUCTION
We are excited to provide an iPad for every Yuma School District One student. We believe having their
own iPads will help our students learn in the ways they learn best. At the same time, students will be
sharpening the technology skills that are now essential in nearly every aspect of career and life.
Each student’s iPad will open a new world of learning possibilities. It will also give each student -- and every parent or guardian -- important
new responsibilities. In the pages that follow, we introduce you to student iPads, explain caring for an iPad, answer some questions you may
have, and list the most important rules for using an iPad safely.
WHAT IS PERSONALIZED LEARNING?
“Personalized learning is tailoring learning for each student’s strengths, needs and interests-- including enabling student voice and choice in what,
how, when, and where they learn-- to provide flexibility and supports to ensure mastery at the highest standards possible.” (Mean What You Say:
Integrating Personalized, Blended and Competency Education. Patrick, Kennedy, Powell, iNACOL 2013.)
Empower every student and educator to utilize digital tools for high achievement
and innovative excellence
Students engage in personalized
learning driven by the expertise of
their teachers and the digital world.
Teachers facilitate personalized
learning through a variety of blended
learning models and the use of
digital content and tools.
The Yuma community supports and
takes pride in its students’ success in
growth toward college, career and
citizenship.
WHY PROVIDE AN IPAD FOR EVERY STUDENT?
An iPad is a powerful technology device. When each student has an iPad just for his or her own use, teaching and learning can be
personalized, the resources of the digital world become accessible, and learning becomes more relevant.
iPads include a camera, the ability to connect to wireless networks, web browsers, a word processor, and access to all sorts of easy-touse software applications (known as “apps”). iPads also come with built-in features that make learning easy and enjoyable for
everyone.
Internet access at home is not required. Everything a student needs to use an iPad after school can be downloaded during the
school day. iPads are easy to carry and their batteries last a long time, so learning can take place anywhere.
4
OPTING OUT
Students are required to use a school-issued iPad because of the instructional materials and paid programs that will be loaded on the
devices for classroom learning. These materials and programs are part of the required curriculum. To ensure an equitable learning
experience, all students will be required to use the iPad.
DISTRIBUTION OF THE IPAD
• iPads will be distributed each year during the first weeks of the school year.
• Parents/Guardians and students must submit the following forms before the district/school can issue an iPad.
• signed iPad Handbook Signature Form
• signed Parent/Student iPad Use Agreement
RETURN OF THE IPAD
• Responsibility for loss or damage of the iPad is the responsibility of the student and parent.
• Students transferring to another school within Yuma School District One (YESD1) must return their iPad (including case, power
adapter, and cable) to the school at which the iPad was originally issued. The student will be issued another device from the
new school once they have completed the in-district transfer.
• Students transferring out of or leaving YESD1 during the school year must return the iPad (including case, power adapter, and
cable and any other district- or school-issued accessories) before leaving the school.
iPAD BASICS
WHAT DO I DO WITH THE IPAD
WHEN I’M NOT USING IT?
If you are in kindergarten or first grade, you will store your iPad in
your classroom. If you are in grades 2 through 8, you must store
your iPad in a secure manner when you are not using it. Do not
place anything on top of the iPad when it is stored.
If you are in grades 2 - 8 you may take the iPad home with you
after school every day so you can prepare for the next day. We
encourage you to learn on your own as well! Please check with
the school regarding this practice.
Any electronic device (iPads, cell phones, etc.) can be a distraction and disrupt the sleep cycle if used right before bedtime. To discourage
late-night, unmonitored use of the iPad, experts suggest that families store it and other electronic devices in a common room of the
home. Families should identify a central location in your home where students can store and/or charge their devices.

•
When you are not using your iPad, keep the case closed to preserve battery life and protect the screen.
Carry your iPad with two hands when walking. Don’t drop it, throw it, or put heavy objects on it.
Be careful putting your iPad in your backpack. Never swing or throw a backpack with an iPad in it.
Keep your iPad away from food, drinks, or other liquids.
Use only a soft, dry cloth to clean the iPad. Do not use any cleaning products on it. (Never use window cleaners,
household chemicals or cleaners, ammonia, alcohol or alcohol-based products, or other abrasives to clean your
iPad. They could remove the special coating and/or scratch the screen.)
Do not use compressed air to clean ports (the little openings on the edges of the iPad where cords are plugged
in).
To protect the screen while you are moving through the halls at school, carry the iPad in front of your body and
avoid bumping into other students.
Don’t leave an iPad on the floor or ground, even if it is in a bag or backpack. It could be stepped on and damaged.
The iPad must remain free of writing, drawing, stickers or labels that are not district approved.
The iPad must remain in the district provided protective case.
HOW DO I CARE FOR THE SCREEN?
Be gentle with your iPad, and especially the glass screen. You must not:
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
●
lean on the screen.
stack books or other heavy objects on top of the iPad. Limit the amount of pressure applied to the screen.
bang the iPad against walls, doors, people, or other objects.
place liquids in a book bag or backpack containing an iPad.
use sharp objects on the screen. It will scratch.
use pens or pencils on the screen.
place anything in the iPad case except the iPad.
carry many items in your backpack with the iPad.
HOW DO I CARE FOR CABLES AND CORDS?
Please be careful when you plug a cable or cord into your iPad. This will prevent damage to the device.
● Don’t force a cable or plug into an iPad.
● Use only the district- provided Apple power adapters and extensions with the iPad.
● Label your cable and power adapter with tape that can be easily removed.
● Do not write on or make any permanent marks on the cables or power adapter.
HOW DO I TRANSPORT THE IPAD TO PROTECT IT FROM THE
WEATHER?
Protect your iPad from the weather. Avoid exposing your iPad to extreme temperatures by keeping it in its case at all
times. Always carry it in a backpack or book bag when outside. Also:
●
●
●
Do not leave your iPad in heat above 95oF. Don’t leave it in your car or in a backpack on the playground.
Do not leave your iPad in cold temperatures below 32oF.
Keep the iPad away from water and extreme humidity.

KEEPING YOUR IPAD SAFE
HOW DO I KEEP MY IPAD SAFE?
An iPad is a valuable device and could be the target of theft. To make sure this doesn’t happen:
• NEVER LEAVE THE IPAD UNATTENDED OR UNSUPERVISED. Anytime your iPad is away from you and not at home, it is at risk of
•
•
•
•
being stolen.
Examples of areas that might be unsupervised include: unlocked classrooms, locker rooms, computer labs, the library/media center,
lunchroom, restrooms, hallways, breezeways, athletic fields and playgrounds.
Do not leave or store the iPad in a vehicle.
Do not lend the iPad to another person. You are the only
person responsible for the care and security of your iPad.
Do not use the iPad or allow it to be visible when waiting at a
bus stop or when walking around in the community.
• Carry the iPad to and from school in a school bag or backpack
so that it is not visible.
• Put a Passcode on your iPad to keep others from getting your
personal information on the iPad. Do not share your
Passcode with anyone else.
• Each iPad has a unique identification number and district
property control tag. Do not remove the tags or
modify the numbers.
• Always shut down and secure the iPad after use to protect
work and information.
IS THE INFORMATION ON MY IPAD SAFE?
Digital identifications are things like Apple IDs, email addresses, and the usernames and passwords for online systems and accounts. They
are for your use only. Do not share them with other students. Add a PIN or passcode to your iPad to prevent unauthorized access to your
device and data, and never share your username and password with others. Also do not use another person’s username and password.
USING THE IPAD AT SCHOOL
Your assigned iPad is for you to do your school assignments. You must bring it to school every day with a fully charged battery. Bring your
iPad to all classes, unless a teacher specifically tells you not to do so. You are responsible for completing all your schoolwork, even if you
leave your assigned iPad at home.
IS THE BATTERY FULLY CHARGED?
Students who take iPads home must bring the device to school every day with a fully charged battery. If you don’t charge the battery, you
may not be able to participate in classroom learning activities.
7
HOW WILL I SAVE THE WORK I DO ON MY IPAD?
We recommend that you upload files to Yuma School District One Google Drive for storage. Storage space will be available on the iPad,
but it will NOT be backed up. It is your responsibility to ensure that work is not lost if your iPad breaks or if you accidentally delete
something. iPad malfunctions are not an acceptable excuse for not submitting work.
WHAT IF THE IPAD IS BEING REPAIRED?
You may receive a loaner or replacement iPad, if available, when your assigned device is being repaired. If there is a delay in assigning a
replacement device, your teacher will allow you to complete required coursework without an iPad. If your iPad is not working properly it
must be reported to the teacher, so that troubleshooting and/or repair may begin as soon as possible.
I HAVE MY OWN DEVICE. DO I HAVE TO USE THE SCHOOL’S IPAD?
Yes. You are required to use a school-issued iPad because of the instructional materials and programs that will be loaded on the devices
USING THE IPAD AT HOME
Students in grades 2-8 may be able to bring their iPads home for learning purposes. All use of the district-owned
device must comply with the Student iPad and Network Responsible Use Agreement. You can find this agreement at
the end of this handbook and also online at http://www.yuma.org/index.cfm?pID=15720.
You can use your iPad to connect to wireless networks anywhere outside the school district, but anytime you use
that iPad, you must follow district policies. Violations of the Responsible Use Agreement may result in disciplinary
action.
APPS AND MODIFICATIONS ON THE IPAD
DISTRICT-OWNED APPS
Students will be using Google Apps for Education and other
Internet resources. Google Apps allows users to communicate
and collaborate effectively in a digital educational environment.
The district has created a Google Apps for Education account and
assigned it to you. Google does not collect any personal student
information from this account. The district controls which Google
services students can access. At present, Google+ and chat are
turned off for students.
8
USING YOUR iPAD OR YOUR DISTRICT EMAIL ACCOUNT TO SUBSCRIBE
TO WEB-BASED SITES
You may use appropriate websites on your own, outside of school. Be careful! You must follow all terms stated on each website. For
example, some websites do not allow use by students under 13, even with parent permission. Also, before you download or use
any web resource outside of school-approved items, please be sure to discuss it with your parent or guardian.

PICTURES, CONTENT AND DATA
CAMERAS AND MICROPHONES
The iPad has cameras on the front and back and a built-in microphone, so you can take pictures and record audio and video. All recordings
and pictures you create with the iPad must follow Yuma School District One policies, as well as state and federal laws. Only take
photographs or record audio or video during the school day if a teacher or administrator tells you to do it for schoolwork. Never
photograph, record video, or create an audio recording of another person without that person’s knowledge and permission. District ONE

references to guns, other weapons, alcohol, drugs, or gambling, you will receive
disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Discipline Handbook.
SOUND AND GAMES
The sound on your iPad must be muted at all times unless your teacher tells you it is okay to turn the sound on for a class activity. For some
assignments, your teacher will also give you permission to use earbuds or earphones. If this happens, be sure the volume is low enough
that the iPad cannot be heard by anyone nearby.
CREATIVE COMMONS: STUDENTS AS CONTENT CREATORS
Your teacher may suggest that your work be shared on the Internet in some way. You own the copyright to your original work. This means
others may not use it without your permission. Your teacher will help you select an appropriate Creative Commons license to give others
only the permissions you want to share your work.

EXPECTATIONS FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
11
In accordance with the Yuma School District One Student iPad and Network Responsible Use Agreement (available later in this handbook),
parents and guardians are responsible for monitoring their children’s use of the Internet and access to district technology resources,
including the iPad, district-issued email account, online learning spaces, collaboration tools, and educational resources. Parents and
guardians need to set clear expectations on appropriate use of electronic devices and limit access to the device in non-school hours. If
your child is not following your rules, you have the right to limit access to the device while at home. The information included
below is meant to assist you in setting expectations and monitoring your child’s use of the device.
In order for the District to facilitate a personalized learning environment, the District will use applications (apps) and web-based services
operated by third parties to give students online instruction, communication and collaboration resources. The District is required to follow
federal regulations that require parent/guardian consent for students under age 13. A complete list of district digital content, with a link
to the privacy policy for each can be found on the Personalized Learning webpage at yuma.org.
SET EXPECTATIONS
Set expectations by discussing the Media Family Agreement with your family. This agreement provides an age-appropriate checklist
that you can use to guide conversations with your children about responsible use of media and technology.
MONITOR AND LIMIT iPAD USE
The iPad is a great tool for learning, but it also has the potential to be a distraction. Adult supervision and clear expectations for
appropriate use are critical.
● Have your child use the device in a central location in your home, such as the kitchen or living room, so that you can easily monitor
and supervise use.
● Set expectations that your child is to complete assignments and tasks before using the
device to access the Internet.
● Check your child’s iPad and schoolwork regularly.
● To avoid unsupervised iPad use, charge the iPad in your bedroom at night.
● If your child is not following your rules, you have the right to limit access to the device
for non-education activities.
● Consider carefully whether other family members may use the iPad, since the student
is responsible for everything on the device.
FILTER ACCESS
The device will always operate on the district network, Internet access is filtered and
most inappropriate content is blocked. However, parents are encourage to discuss
internet safety as well as, steps that need to be taken if inappropriate content is
accessed. Common Sense Media has several resources to help parents and families
communicate about these issues.
MONITOR STUDENT PROGRESS
Yuma School District One encourages parents and guardians to use the iPad to monitor their children’s academic progress and communicate
electronically with their children’s teachers. Ask your students to show you what they have learned and created with the iPad, and discuss how
they use the device in school. Parents can also access the Illuminate grade book through the Parent Portal on the iPad.
EMAIL COMMUNICATIONS
Parents may also use the Safari browser app to log in to their personal email account to send emails to their children’s teachers. Parents and
guardians should not add any personal email accounts to the iPad’s built- in Mail app because personal emails may be visible to anyone who
accesses the device.
12

DAMAGED, LOST OR STOLEN IPADS
APPLECARE+
If you have questions about using your iPad and iCloud, connecting to wireless networks, or about using Applebranded apps like Keynote, Numbers, or Pages, contact the AppleCare phone number located on the name card on the
back of your iPad. AppleCare support is available Monday - Friday 6:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and 8:00 a.m. -8:00 p.m. on
Saturday/Sunday.
DAMAGED DEVICES AND TECHNICAL PROBLEMS
Legal title to the iPad and its accessories will always belong to
the district. Your right to have and use the iPad depends on
your following the guidelines and rules in the iPad
agreement. Every student is responsible to use and care for
the iPad appropriately.
You are responsible for the entire cost of repairs to iPads if you
misuse, abuse, damage or lose it.
Do not attempt to gain access to internal electronics or repair
your iPad. Do not take the iPad to an outside party for repair.
If the iPad fails to work or is damaged, report the problem to
the appropriate adult at school as soon as possible. The
Technology Department will determine repairs needed.
Your school may issue you a temporary iPad, if one is
available, or other materials until your iPad is working
properly or replaced. If the iPad is experiencing technical
difficulties outside of school hours, you will need to wait until
you return to school to report it.
LOST OR STOLEN IPADS
If the iPad is lost or stolen, report it to an adult at school as soon as possible but definitely within two days. School staff will assist you with
submitting a written report. A police report must be filed for a stolen iPad within 48 hours.
If you withdraw, are expelled, or terminate enrollment in Yuma School District One for any reason, you must return the district iPad, case,
power adapter, and cable in working condition to the library of your school on or before your date of withdrawal. The District will not
release your student records until you return district property or pay for lost, stolen, or damaged equipment.
14
CONSEQUENCES FOR LOST, STOLEN, DAMAGE TO,
OR MISUSE OF, AN IPAD
Yuma School District One has the right to prevent any student from using a district iPad at any time.
The use of the district issued iPad and the related agreements are good during the current school year, unless the district terminates the
agreement earlier due to student misuse, transfer to another school, or withdrawal from school or other reasons.
The consequences listed below will be applied to lost/stolen devices, as well as to damage to an iPad or to a person caused by reckless,
abusive, willful or intentional conduct. Some examples of willful damage to an iPad include broken screens caused by intentionally
throwing or dropping the device; swinging a bag or backpack with a device inside; stepping on the device; intentionally spilling a liquid
on the device; hitting another person or object with the device; damage caused to a device that was not in the district-issued case;
tampering with the internal components of the iPad; or making unauthorized modifications to the operating system, known as hacking
the device. It also includes the loss or damage to the accessories that were loaned to you with the iPad. Types of willful damage to
another person are listed in the the Student iPad Network and Responsible Use Agreement.
An “incident” is defined as a lost or stolen device or failure to abide by the iPad and Network Responsible Use Agreement.
FIRST INCIDENT:
After you review the iPad care and security sections of the iPad Handbook with your building administrator, you may be issued a
replacement iPad, if one is available. Your building administrator will take into account the situation that led to the damage or loss. This
may result in limiting your iPad use to in-school only, for a period to be determined by your administrator. You still will be required to
complete all school assignments, and your teachers will make reasonable accommodations as needed. You and your family may be held
responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement.
SECOND INCIDENT:
You may be allowed to use an iPad only at school, and the device must be checked in and out with the assigned building staff at the
beginning and end of the school day. You will not be allowed to take the iPad home until you and a parent or guardian meet with a
building administrator and agree to a plan for preventing the loss or damage in the future. You may be suspended for up to five
days. You and your family may be held responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement.
THIRD INCIDENT:
You may be allowed to use an iPad only at school, and the device must be checked in and out with the assigned building staff at the
beginning and end of the school day. You will not be allowed to take the iPad home for the remainder of the school year. You may be
suspended for up to ten days. You and your family may be held responsible for the full cost of repair or replacement.
If you fail to return the iPad and/or related components at the end of the school year, upon withdrawal or when directed to do so, the
iPad and related components will be considered stolen property. In that case, the district will not release your records and will file a
police report. You must return the case, district-provided power adapter and connector cable, and any other iPad related items issued
by the district when you return your iPad.
