La Joya Independent School District encourages the use of technology as one way of enhancing the
mission to prepare and inspire students for life-long success by teaching the skills, knowledge, and
behaviors students will need as responsible citizens in the global community. As 21st Century
learners, students learn collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking as well as
problem solving in a variety of ways throughout the school day. Excellence in education requires
that technology is seamlessly integrated throughout the education program. In an effort to
increase access to those 21st Century skills, LJISD has made it a goal to offer 9 th grade students
accessibility to their learning through Project INSPIRE (iPad Technology Initiative). The
individual use of technology is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to
prepare them for college and careers. Project INSPIRE will help students Integrate, Network,
Self-Direct, Problem Solve, Innovate, Reflect, and Envision.
An important component of the Project INSPIRE will be education about digital citizenship and
appropriate online behaviors. We will review cyber-safety rules with students frequently
throughout the school year, and will offer reminders and reinforcement about safe online
behaviors.
Students participating in Project INSPIRE are expected to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct,
Student Handbook, Acceptable Use Policy, Board Policies, and federal/state laws.

2.1 General Precautions
The iPad is La Joya Independent School District property and all users will follow these policies
and the Acceptable Use Policy for technology.
 Cords and cables must be inserted carefully into the iPad to prevent damage.
 iPads must not be exposed to extreme temperatures or any types of moisture.
 iPads must remain free of any writing, drawing, stickers, or labels that are not the property
of LJISD.
 iPads must remain in the provided protective case at all times.
 iPads must never be left in an unlocked car or any unsupervised area, including locker
rooms, classrooms, hallways, practice rooms, gymnasium, or cafeteria.

used to wipe the screen.
2.4 iPad Cameras and Microphone
The iPad comes equipped with audio and video recording capabilities through a built-in
microphone and front and rear-facing cameras.
 All electronic recordings created with the device must comply with La Joya ISD policies,

Enforcement of Policy
1. La Joya Independent School District uses a technology protection measure that blocks or filters
Internet access to block access to some Internet sites that are not in accordance with the policy of La
Joya Independent School District.
2. The technology protection measure that blocks or filters Internet access may be disabled for a La
Joya Independent School District staff member for bona fide research purposes by an adult.

measure that blocks or filters Internet access for a student to access a site with legitimate educational
value that is wrongly blocked by the technology protection measure.
4. La Joya Independent School District staff will monitor students' use of the Internet, through either
direct supervision, or by monitoring Internet use history, to ensure enforcement of the policy.
5. Any person taking, disseminating, transferring, or sharing obscene, sexually oriented or otherwise
illegal images or other content will be disciplined according to the Student Code of Conduct or
employee standards and may, in certain circumstances, be reported to law enforcement.
Supervision and Monitoring
It shall be the responsibility of all members of the La Joya ISD staff to supervise and monitor usage of the
online computer network and access to the Internet in accordance with this policy and the Children’s
Internet protection Act. Procedures for the disabling or otherwise modifying any technology protection
measures shall be the responsibility of the Instructional Resources and Technology Department.
TEA Internet Safety Resource Website‐ http://ritter.tea.state.tx.us/imet/intersafe/index.html
The Texas Education Agency has developed and made available to school districts a list of resources
concerning Internet Safety. The links are for students, educators and parents. Within each of the pages are
links that categorize different aspects of Internet safety and digital citizenship to educate and inform.
The Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
As per the FCC Report and Order on the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CC Docket NO. 96‐5) adopted
on March 30, 2001 and released on April 5, 2001, in order to receive discounts for Internet access and
internal Connections services under the universal service support mechanism (E‐Rate), school and library
authorities must certify several items.
"The Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA) was signed into law on December 21, 2000. Under CIPA, no
school or library may receive discounts unless it certifies that it is enforcing a policy of Internet safety that
includes the use of filtering or blocking technology (see below). This Internet Safety Policy must protect
against access, through computers with Internet access, to visual depictions that are obscene, child
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)
Page 20
pornography, or (in the case of use by minors) harmful to minors. The school or library must also certify
that it is enforcing the operation of such filtering or blocking technology during any use of such computers
by minors. The law is effective for Funding Year 4 (07/01/2001 to 06/30/2002) and for all future years.
Schools and libraries receiving only Telecommunications Services are excluded from the requirements of
CIPA.
For the first Funding Year (Funding Year 4 for Year 4 applicants), applicants must certify on their Form
486 either that they are in compliance with CIPA, or that they are undertaking actions to put into place an
Internet Safety Policy and to procure the filtering or blocking technology. For the second year (for most
applicants, Funding Year 5), they must certify on their Form 486 that they are in compliance with CIPA in
order to receive universal service discounts. However, if state or local procurement rules or regulations or
competitive bidding requirements prevent the making of the required CIPA certifications, applicants may
seek a waiver and provide notification that they will be in compliance before the start of the third Funding
Year (for most applicants, Funding Year 6.) In general, local communities are responsible for determining
what constitutes prohibited material and appropriate actions by schools and libraries."
The La Joya ISD will choose the following certification option on FCC Form 486:
Pursuant to the Children’s Internet Protection Act, as codified at 47 U.S.C. 254(h) and (1), the recipients(s) of
service represented in the Funding Request Number(s) on this Form 486 is (are) undertaking such actions,
including any necessary procurement procedures, to comply with the requirements of CIPA for the next
funding year, but has (have) not completed all requirements of CIPA for this funding year
CIPA definitions of terms:
TECHNOLOGY PROTECTION MEASURE. The term “technology protection measure” means a specific
technology that blocks or filters Internet access to visual depictions that are:
1. OBSCENE, as that term is defined in section 1460 of title 18, United States Code;
2. CHILD PORNOGRAPHY, as that term is defined in section 2256 of title 18, United States Code; or
3. Harmful to minors.
HARMFUL TO MINORS. The term “harmful to minors” means any picture, image, graphic image file, or
other visual depiction that:
1. Taken as a whole and with respect to minors, appeals to a prurient interest in nudity, sex, or excretion;
2. Depicts, describes, or represents, in a patently offensive way with respect to what is suitable for minors,
an actual or simulated sexual act or sexual contact, actual or simulated normal or perverted sexual acts, or a
lewd exhibition of the genitals; and
3. Taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value as to minors.

SECTION I: PARENTAL RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Requesting Limited or No Contact with a Student through Electronic Media
Teachers and other approved employees are permitted by the district to communicate with
students through the use of electronic media within the scope of the individual’s professional
responsibilities. For example, a teacher may set up a social networking page for his or her class
that has information related to class work, homework, and tests. As a parent, you are welcome to
join or become a member of such a page.
An employee described above may also contact a student individually through electronic media to
communicate about items such as homework or upcoming tests.
If you prefer that your child not receive any one-to-one electronic communications from a district
employee or if you have questions related to the use of electronic media by district employees,
please contact the campus principal.
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)
Page 42
SECTION II: OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND PARENTS
BULLYING
Bullying occurs when a student or group of students engages in written or verbal expression,
expression through electronic methods, or physical conduct against another student on school
property, at a school-sponsored or –related activity, or in a district operated vehicle, and the
behavior:
 Results in harm to the student or the student’s property,
 Places a student in reasonable fear of physical harm or of damage to the student’s property,
or
 Is so severe, persistent, and pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive
educational environment.
This conduct is considered bullying if it exploits an imbalance of power between the student
perpetrator(s) and the student victim and if it interferes with a student’s education or substantially
disrupts the operation of the school.
Bullying is prohibited by the district and could include hazing, threats, taunting, teasing,
confinement, assault, demands for money, destruction of property, theft of valued possessions,
name-calling, rumor-spreading, or ostracism. In some cases, bullying can occur through electronic
methods, called “cyberbullying.”
If a student believes that he or she has experienced bullying or has witnessed bullying of another
student, it is important for the student or parent to notify a teacher, school counselor, principal, or
another district employee as soon as possible to obtain assistance and intervention. The
administration will investigate any allegations of bullying or other related misconduct.
If the results of an investigation indicate that bullying has occurred, the administration will take
appropriate disciplinary action. Disciplinary or other action may be taken even if the conduct did
not rise to the level of bullying.
The district will also contact the parents of the victim and of the student who was found to have
engaged in the bullying. Available counseling options will be provided to these individuals, as
well as to any students who have been identified as witnesses to the bullying.
Any retaliation against a student who reports an incident of bullying is prohibited.
Upon the recommendation of the administration, the board may, in response to an identified case
of bullying, decide to transfer a student found to have engaged in bullying to another classroom at
the campus. In consultation with the student’s parent, the student may also be transferred to
another campus in the district. The parent of a student who has been determined by the district to
be a victim of bullying may request that his or her child be transferred to another classroom or
campus within the district. [Also see School Safety Transfers.]
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)
Page 43
A copy of the district’s policy is available in the principal’s office, superintendent’s office, and on
the district’s Web site, and is included at the end of this Handbook in the form of an appendix.
Procedures related to reporting allegations of bullying may also be found on the district’s Web site.
A student or parent who is dissatisfied with the outcome of an investigation may appeal through
policy FNG(LOCAL).
[Also see Dating Violence, Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation, School Safety
Transfers, Hazing, policy FFI, and the district improvement plan, a copy of which can be viewed
in the campus office.]
ELECTRONIC DEVICES AND TECHNOLOGY RESOURCES
Possession and Use of Personal Telecommunications Devices, Including Mobile Telephones
For safety purposes, the district permits students to possess personal mobile telephones; however,
these devices must remain turned off during the instructional day, including during all testing,
unless they are being used for approved instructional purposes. A student must have approval to
possess other telecommunications devices such as netbooks, laptops, tablets, or other portable
computers.
The use of mobile telephones or any device capable of capturing images is strictly prohibited in
locker rooms or restroom areas while at school or at a school-related or school-sponsored event.
If a student uses a telecommunications device without authorization during the school day, the
device will be confiscated. The student/parent may pick up the confiscated telecommunications
device from the principal’s office for a fee of $15.
Confiscated telecommunications devices that are not retrieved by the student or the student’s
parents will be disposed of after the notice required by law. [See policy FNCE.]
In limited circumstances and in accordance with law, a student’s personal telecommunications
device may be searched by authorized personnel. [See Searches and policy FNF.]
Any disciplinary action will be in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. The district is not
responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen telecommunications devices.
Possession and Use of Other Personal Electronic Devices
Except as described below, students are not permitted to possess or use personal electronic devices
such as MP3 players, video or audio recorders, DVD players, cameras, games, e-readers, or other
electronic devices at school, unless prior permission has been obtained. Without such permission,
teachers will collect the items and turn them in to the principal’s office. The principal will
determine whether to return items to students at the end of the day or to contact parents to pick up
the items.
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)
Page 44
In limited circumstances and in accordance with law, a student’s personal electronic device may be
searched by authorized personnel. [See Searches and policy FNF.]
Any disciplinary action will be in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. The district is not
responsible for any damaged, lost, or stolen electronic device.
Instructional Use of Personal Telecommunications and Other Electronic Devices
In some cases, students may find it beneficial or might be encouraged to use personal
telecommunications or other personal electronic devices for instructional purposes while on
campus. Students must obtain prior approval before using personal telecommunications or other
personal electronic devices for instructional use. Students must also sign a user agreement that
contains applicable rules for use (separate from this handbook). When students are not using the
devices for approved instructional purposes, all devices must be turned off during the
instructional day. Violations of the user agreement may result in withdrawal of privileges and
other disciplinary action.
Acceptable Use of District Technology Resources
To prepare students for an increasingly technological society, the district has made an investment
in the use of district-owned technology resources for instructional purposes; specific resources
may be issued individually to students. Use of these technological resources, which include the
district’s network systems and use of district equipment, is restricted to approved purposes only.
Students and parents will be asked to sign a user agreement (separate from this handbook)
regarding use of these district resources.
Violations of the user agreement may result in withdrawal of privileges and other disciplinary
action.
Unacceptable and Inappropriate Use of Technology Resources
Students are prohibited from possessing, sending, forwarding, posting, accessing, or displaying
electronic messages that are abusive, obscene, sexually oriented, threatening, harassing, damaging
to another’s reputation, or illegal. This prohibition also applies to conduct off school property,
whether the equipment used to send such messages is district-owned or personally owned, if it
results in a substantial disruption to the educational environment.
Any person taking, disseminating, transferring, possessing, or sharing obscene, sexually oriented,
lewd, or otherwise illegal images or other content, commonly referred to as “sexting,” will be
disciplined according to the Student Code of Conduct, may be required to complete an educational
program related to the dangers of this type of behavior, and, in certain circumstances, may be
reported to law enforcement. Because engaging in this type of behavior can lead to bullying or
harassment, as well as possibly impede future endeavors of a student, we encourage you to review
with your child http://beforeyoutext.com, a state-developed program that addresses the
consequences of engaging in inappropriate behavior using technology.
In addition, any student who engages in conduct that results in a breach of the district’s computer
security will be disciplined in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct, and, in some cases,
the consequence may rise to the level of expulsion.

Cyber Bulling Laws in Texas and Texas Schools
Texas House Bill 2003 (81st Texas Legislature-2009) , an act creating the offense of online
harassment, and more recently House Bill 1942 (82nd Texas Legislature-2011) have addressed the
problem of cyber bullying, a type of cyber crime, in Texas in general, and more specifically
incidents involving minors in the Texas school system. House Bill 2003 makes it an illegal act of
fraud to use another persons' identity to post messages or to create an online presence. The person
committing this offense can be prosecuted if it is proven that this was done without permission
and with the intent to defraud. This internet harassment law also applies to e-mails, instant
messages and text messaging.
More recently House Bill 1942 has redefined cyber bullying, in Chapter 37 of the Texas Education
Code. It also provides mandates that each school district adopt a policy of prevention, training and
reporting of incidents of bullying.
HB 1942:
 Definition to include bullying by electronic means and,
 conduct that occurs on school property, at a school-sponsored or school-related activity, or
in a vehicle operated by the district
 A situation that exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the
student victim through written or verbal expression or physical conduct
 Students engaging in bullying can be transferred to another classroom or campus
 Teachers and staff training on all aspects of bullying
 Provide a policy from investigation to reporting of incidents
 Exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the student victim
through written or verbal expression or physical conduct
 Prohibits retaliation against anyone "who in good faith provides information concerning an
incident of bullying"
 Establishes a procedure for notifying a parent of the victim and the bully
 Establishes the actions a student should take to obtain assistance and intervention in
response to bullying
 Sets out the available counseling options for the victim, witness to an incident of bullying or
the bully him/herself
 Establishes a procedure for reporting and investigating a reported incident of bullying.
Penalties for Cyber Bulling in Texas
Penalties resulting from conviction of cyber bullying can range from a Class A Misdemeanor up to
a 3rd degree felony. There are many factors involved in proving this conviction. The criminal
history of the offender is considered in determining the severity of sentencing. Misdemeanor
violations will most likely include fines and community service but a felony charge can mean 2 to
10 years in prison. Being accused of cyber bullying or online harassment should be taken
seriously.

20 Amazing iPad Apps for Educators
1. Teacher's Assistant Pro
Perfect for busy teachers, Teacher’s Assistant Pro allows users to track students’ behaviors, infractions, and
achievements quickly and easily. Incidents on student behavior and achievement can be documented in real time and
reports can be sent to parents and administrators instantly via email. Organizing important documents is also simple
and clutter free. The app can be customized to fit your classroom needs.
2. Outliner
Outliner serves a couple of different uses for teachers, who can also discover their own creative applications the better
acquainted they become with the interface. Users create and streamline lists and outlines for various projects, making
this an excellent resource for writing up lecture notes, keeping grade sheets, drawing rubrics, and more. Because
education is a dizzying field with much to organize and track, any workers with access to an iPad should take
advantage of Outliner’s offerings to stay on top of everything.
3. Sundry Notes
Not only does Sundry Notes serve a valuable organizational purpose, it also costs nothing as well! With the ability to
import .pdf files, format writings, make quick drawings, run searches of Wikipedia, Google, and Google Books, snag
images off the internet, make recordings, and much more, educators need to download this application to help keep
everything they need for class organized in one place. Math teachers will especially enjoy the ability to work on virtual
graph paper.
4. Docs Anywhere
As its nomenclature implies, Docs Anywhere allows iPad users a high degree of portability for their digital
documents. Capable of reading Word, Excel, PowerPoint, .pdf files, rich text, plain text, HTML, and other file formats,
it allows transfer between desktop and portable device using USB and iTunes. Teachers who prefer working on their
home machines can very easily transport their work to the classroom on their iPads, which also provides e-mailing
capabilities for an added dimension of file preservation.
5. eClicker
The listed site is for the eClicker client, though users may need or prefer to download a host instead. Marketed
towards teachers, the application features a means of polling classes during lectures by sending a signal via wi-fi to
any enabled device in the room. This allows for immediate feedback, and educators are able to save the information
for later reference – even editing! eClicker also allows the ones responsible for polling the ability to kick up their
questionnaires with drawings and images.
6. Mathematical Formulas
For only $.99, math teachers (or even those involved with sciences requiring the manipulation of numbers) have a
quick conduit for referencing the various formulas from various disciplines. Students can throw their educators for a
loop sometimes, so it helps to have the information on hand to answer any questions that crop up during a lesson.
Users also have access to examples that illustrate how the equations work, making this a handy tool for cranking out
quick assignments, quizzes, and tests as well.
7. Touch Karma (Parenting)
In spite of the title, this behavior-tracking application boasts value for teachers as well. Anyone saddled with
educating preschool or kindergarten students can easily appreciate how Touch Karma (Parenting) assists them in
keeping track of which students stand as exemplary and which probably need a parent-teacher conference, counseling,
or juvenile detention. Schools or educators who dish out conduct grades especially benefit from this quick way of
recording whether or not those rambunctious little nose-miners deserve praise or discipline, as they do not have to dig
through any notes or memories to assign a pass or fail.
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)

8. gFlashPro
Dedicated to the distribution of knowledge anywhere, any time, gFlashPro serves students, teachers, and trivia junkies
alike. Download flash cards assignment, quiz, and test inspiration, store images and audio for reference or
incorporation into a lecture, and much more. The little quizzes even allow educators to test their own proficiency in
the fields they teach and help them build up on the areas where they could use a nice, quick boost. When using this
function, gFlashPro also keeps track of progress made when testing oneself!
9. Free Books
Any educators with a need for quick reference to 23,469 books (and counting!) should absolutely download this
amazing resource. Completely free, not only does it provide access to classic novels, but autobiographies, letters,
speeches, and other writings by significant historical figures and recognized geniuses – including the American
presidents – works of philosophy by Seneca and other influential thinkers, Shakespeare’s plays, and more as well!!
Because of this, even teachers who do not focus on English still benefit greatly from what Free Books offers.
10. LanSchool Teacher’s Assistant
With technology and internet access becoming more and more mainstream in the classroom, one of the more pressing
concerns involves how to monitor computer use to curb abuse and distractions. Fortunately, LanSchool’s extremely
valuable Teacher’s Assistant application caters to these issues, providing educators with the ability to black out any
distracting or offensive screens, limit what their students can and cannot do on their machines, send messages to
students, allow silent, individualized help sessions, and take quick polls. Allowing teachers to monitor computer
usage helps bolster productivity for all involved.
11. The Elements: A Visual Exploration
The periodic table receives a lush makeover the likes of which Tom Lehrer and They Might Be Giants can only
imagine. Educators tasked with teaching chemistry will especially appreciate having this application on hand as a
point of valuable reference. Not only does it provide all the essential information regarding every element currently
known to mankind, but rotating visuals of their uses, the latest news and discoveries that involve them, computations,
videos of experiments, and even market prices, too! Wearing 3D glasses while browsing the visuals only enhances the
experience.
12. Magic Piano
Music teachers, directors, accompanists, and tutors from school districts unable to afford pianos and keyboards can
use this application to educate students on the fundamentals. Magic Piano comes preprogrammed with the sheet
music for a great many classics and beginner’s pieces, which kids can easily follow along with when the lighting
elements of the keyboard are activated. With the lights turned off and the sheet music virtually tucked away, the
keyboard functions on its own for independent study. Users can even arrange duet with others who use the Magic
Piano, no matter where in the world they may live!
13. History: Maps of the World
Seung-Bin Cho’s free iPad application proves useful for more than just history teachers, as students must nurture the
ability to place works of art, music, literature, philosophy, politics, and other disciplines into their proper historical or
geographic contexts. As a wonderful teacher’s aid, History: Maps of the World compiles cartography from different
eras, allowing viewers to watch as boundaries change and tectonic plates shift. Some maps even group nations
together by theme rather than geography as well.
14. Bento for iPad
Filemaker, Inc. brings its wildly popular productivity application Bento from the iPhone to the iPad. With 25 different
database templates to choose from, the harried teacher can organize anything and everything he or she needs to rein in
the occasionally overwhelming chaos. Some of these, such as the student list, directly address the needs of educators.
La Joya ISD Project INSPIRE iPad Handbook (Approved 9/27/13)
Page 65
People of all professions take advantage of Bento’s fantastic features to ease the stresses of everyday life, making the
$4.99 price tag a worthy investment in peace of mind.
15. Keynote
Teachers looking for a few visual aids to go along with their lectures would do well to explore what Keynote has to
offer them. For ease of use, they can choose from 12 premade themes and sprinkle their notes with animations,
pictures, tables, charts, videos, and other multimedia touches. The iPad hooks up to external displays, projectors,
desktops, and laptops so the presenter can reach a large audience; nobody has to crowd around the tiny display
screen, though files can easily be bounced from machine to machine via e-mail and .pdf files.
16. Mobile Air Mouse
Turn the iPad into a viable wireless remote or trackpad using Mobile Air Mouse, which fortunately sports far more
uses than these. Educators with a love of incorporating technology into the classroom will appreciate how it functions
as an all-in-one tool with a number of excellent remote control, trackpad, keyboard, and foreign language functions –
they can even place a computer into sleep mode and wake it back up! The application comes very much in handy for
controlling the visual aids during lectures by reducing the amount of necessary equipment.
17. Molecules
Perfect for science class, Molecules offers an incredible three-dimensional view of molecules. Users have the control to
alter the view of the molecules by rotating them, zooming in on them, and more all through the use of their fingers.
This app also allows users to get a hands on view of how molecules are composed and they can create their own
specific molecules. This application is a great guide for visual learners and is free for download.
18. Pages
Create gorgeous and effective handouts, tests, quizzes, assignments, notes, and presentations using Apple’s own word
processing application. With 16 templates for everything from cards to fliers, users start working on what really
matters right off the bat. Teachers who take advantage of everything it has to offer can incorporate graphs, charts,
videos, and photos into their projects to add interest and better illustrate information. Capable of file sharing, Pages
also allows for saving files in convenient Word and .pdf formats as well.
19. World Book – This Day in History
A valuable application for teachers of all subjects, World Book encyclopedia’s This Day in History presents 365 days of
important births, deaths, and events that eventually shaped today’s world. Users may navigate from day to day – they
are not relegated to only exploring the past of the present. At the moment, things seem a bit less detailed than the
company likes. Because of this, later updates will implement video, audio, images, and access to important historical
texts.
20. Dropbox
Educators with notes and files scattered about different computers will love this application. By synching with other
machines sporting Dropbox, users do not have to fear misplacing important documents – it even boasts the ability to
read a number of different common file formats, too! Anyone with an iPhone may save their photos and videos
directly to the application as well. Teachers who come across great bits of online multimedia to enhance a lecture can
save their valuable findings for future offline viewing and organize them into specific galleries.
