Tablet Care for Students

Tablet Care for Students

Students who take tablets home are able to use their tablets at school as well as home.

Users that do not take a device home will have access to devices during the school day. They will get their assigned devices each morning and place in the appropriate carts at the end of the day.

Students that are on a hybrid schedule must bring their tablet each day fully charged and ready to be used at school.

Virtual students must have their tablets charged and online to participate in instruction.

The district may collect student tablets for use at school only for certain periods of time. The school will be sure that tablets are updated, secured, and charged for use during this time.

Tablets are issued for student use only. Inappropriate use by any other person outside of the district may result in disciplinary action for the student.
District discipline procedures are in effect for all users whether virtual, hybrid or at school.

Students must keep their tablet inside the cases at all times when not in use. Only labels or stickers approved use by Dillon School District Four may be applied to the tablet or district-issued case.

Cases should not hold other objects. Folders, workbooks, etc. should be kept in a book bag or carried separately to avoid placing excessive pressure and weight on the tablet device screen.

Tablet cases furnished by the school district must be returned with only normal wear and no alterations to avoid a case replacement fee

Tablet are intended for use at school. In addition to teacher expectations for tablet use, students may access school messages, announcements, calendars and schedules using their tablet through district approved software.

Tablets Left at Home

When students are given access to take the tablet home, it is the student’s responsibility to bring the tablet back to school the following day fully charged. Students who leave their tablet at home are still responsible for completing their daily course work. Repeated offenses may result in disciplinary action.

Tablets Undergoing Repair

The school may issue a loaner tablet to a student while their tablet is being repaired. A student may not receive a loaner immediately. There may be a delay depending upon availability of a loaner tablet and quickness of repair process.

Tablets that stay at school must be returned to the cart designated by the teacher at the end of each school day.
