iPad Cameras & Microphone
The iPad comes equipped with audio and video recording capabilities through a built-in microphone and front and rear-facing cameras.
Use of the iPad and any other devices with audio and video recording capabilities during instructional time is at the discretion of the teacher and the student must obtain prior approval to use the device for such purposes. Any electronic recordings obtained with the recording device are for instructional/educational purposes and individual use. Therefore, electronic recordings obtained with the iPad may not be shared, published or re-broadcast for any reason by the student without permission. Furthermore, users of the iPad should be aware that State and Federal laws in many instances prohibit secret or surreptitious recording undertaken without the knowledge and consent of the person or persons being recorded. Violations of State and Federal recording laws may be reported to the proper authorities and may result in criminal prosecution.
All electronic recordings created with the device must comply with District Policies and State and Federal Laws. District policy prohibits the use of electronic recording devices in a manner that compromises the privacy interests of other individuals. District policy also prohibits harassment and bullying
Users of the iPad device are required to use the device in a manner that complies with these and other District Policies. Use of the iPad in a manner that violates District policy may result in revocation of the device and may result in further disciplinary consequence.
If the iPad is lost, it must be reported to the Howard-Suamico School District as soon as possible. It may be the responsibility of the student and family to recover or replace the lost iPad. If necessary, the District and the police will assist in recovery.
Do not attempt to gain access to the internal electronics or repair your iPad. If your iPad fails to work or is damaged, report the problem to the School Media Center as soon as possible.
Carefully transport your iPad to school every day. Avoid placing weight on the iPad. Never throw or slide an iPad. Never expose an iPad to long-term temperature extremes or direct sunlight. An automobile is not a good place to store an iPad.
Never leave an iPad unattended. When not in your personal possession, the iPad should be in a secure, locked environment. Unattended iPads will be collected and stored in the school’s main office.
Do not lend your iPad to another person. Each iPad is assigned to an individual and the responsibility for the care of the iPad solely rests with that individual. Each iPad has a unique identification number and at no time should the numbers or labels be modified or removed.
Your iPad comes with a school issued case. The purpose of the case is to protect the iPad, especially while the iPad is being transported. The iPad must remain in the school issued protective case at all times. No stickers or any other items should be attached to the iPad/iPad case itself unless placed there by school staff.
The iPad is an electronic device; handle it with care. Never throw a book bag that contains an iPad. Never place an iPad in a book bag that contains food, liquids, heavy, or sharp objects. While the iPad is scratch resistant, it is not scratch proof. Avoid using any sharp object(s) on the iPad. The iPad screen is glass and is vulnerable to cracking. Never place heavy objects on top of the iPad and never drop your iPad. Careful placement in your backpack is important. iPads do not respond well to liquids. Avoid applying liquids to the iPad. The iPad can be cleaned with a soft, slightly water-dampened, lint-free cloth. Avoid getting moisture in the openings. Do not use window cleaners, household cleaners, aerosol sprays, solvents, alcohol, ammonia, or abrasives to clean the iPad. Use of unapproved cleaners may remove the protective film covering the face of the iPad.
