District iPad One-to‐One Personal Learning Initiative
The focus of our One-‐to-‐One Personal Learning Initiative is to provide tools and resources to the 21st Century Learner. Excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. According to studies and school reports, students who use a computing device in a one-to-one educational environment are more organized and engaged learners, attend school more regularly, advance their knowledge and understanding of technology, and become constructors and designers of information and ideas.
Increasing access to technology is essential for that future, and one learning tool for these 21st Century students is the Apple iPad. The personalized, mobile, and individual use of an iPad is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for future learning. The Apple iPad is a device that makes learning more engaging and accessible. Learning happens from a continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended educational community. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. Effective teaching and learning with iPads, integrate technology into the curriculum anytime, anyplace.

1.3 Responsibility for Damage, Loss or Failure to Return
Board Policy 7:170, Vandalism, states that “The Board will seek restitution from students and their parents/guardians for vandalism or other student acts that cause damage to school property.” District iPads and their accessories are school property.
If a student fails to return the District iPad at the end of the school year or upon termination of enrollment at Glenview School District 34, that student may be held responsible for the device, including being subject to criminal prosecution or civil liability if warranted. The student will pay the replacement cost of the District iPad. Willful failure to return the District iPad will result in a theft report being filed with the Glenview Police Department. Furthermore, the student will be responsible for immediately reporting any damage to or loss of the District iPad to his/her homeroom teacher or Instructional Innovation Specialist. During the school year, the student will not be charged a fee for the first incident of needed repairs related to isolated, accidental damage. All subsequent accidental damages will be charged a fee. All damage that is deemed intentional will be charged to the student and will cover the replacement or repair of the device as determined by the school district. Damaged, lost or stolen accessories, such as carrying cases, chargers and cables, are the sole responsibility of the student/parent/guardian. If an accessory is damaged, lost or stolen, the parent/guardian will be responsible for the full replacement cost of that District provided accessory, unless the District otherwise excuses such payment. All devices lost outside the school building will require the parents/guardian to file a police report prior to receiving a replacement, where theft is suspected.
Students are responsible for the general care of the District iPad and accessories (e.g., case, keyboard, charging cords) they have been issued by the District. District iPads that are broken or fail to work properly must be taken as soon as possible to the Technology Department via the Learning Resource Center for an evaluation of the equipment.

The protective cases provided with the District iPads have sufficient padding to protect the District iPad from normal treatment and provide a suitable means for carrying the device within the school. The guidelines below should be followed:
District iPads should always remain in the protective case. Backpack compartments that hold other objects (such as folders and textbooks), should not be used to carry District iPads to avoid placing too much pressure and weight on the District iPad screen.
District iPads should never be transported, stored, or used in the same location as water bottles or other liquids.
When students are not using their District iPads, the District iPads should be stored in a safe location. Nothing should be placed on top of the District iPad when stored in a bag, desk, or other location.
Once students have earned the right to take their District iPad home, they will be encouraged to do so each evening.
When traveling on district provided transportation or waiting for district provided transportation, all iPads shall remain closed and inside a student backpack.
When waiting for non-‐district provided transportation after school or while on school grounds but not in class, all iPads shall remain secure inside a student backpack.
District iPads should not be stored in a parent’s vehicle at school or at home. If a student needs a secure place to store their District iPad, the student may check it in for storage with his/her teacher.
Under no circumstances should District iPads be left in unsupervised areas. Unsupervised areas include the school grounds and campus, the lunchroom, library, unlocked classrooms, dressing rooms and hallways and any other unsupervised areas. Any District iPad left in these areas is in danger of being stolen. If a District iPad is found in an unsupervised area, it will be taken to the Learning Resource Center or Principal’s office. A student will meet with the Principal / Instructional Innovation Specialist in order to retrieve his/her District iPad.
2.3 Screen Care
The District iPad screens can be damaged if subjected to rough treatment. The screens are particularly sensitive to damage from excessive pressure on the screen.
Do not lean on the top of the District iPad or on the screen.
Do not place anything near the District iPad that could put pressure on the screen.
Do not place anything in the carrying case that will press against the cover.
Clean the screen with a soft, dry cloth or anti-‐static cloth.
Do not bump the District iPad against lockers, walls, car doors, floors, etc. as it will eventually break the screen.
2.4 District iPad Identification
District iPads will be labeled in the manner specified by the District and specific to each building. District iPads can be identified in the following ways:
Record of serial number
Glenview School District 34 asset tag
Student’s First Name/Last Name and / or Web ID as labeled by school staff.
District iPads are intended for use at school each day. In addition to teacher expectations for District iPad use, school messages, announcements, calendars and schedules depending on grade may be accessed using the District iPad computer. Students must be responsible to bring their District iPad to all classes unless specifically instructed not to do so by their teacher.

Inappropriate or otherwise unauthorized media may not be created, taken, viewed, emailed, or downloaded to the device. Inappropriate media is not to be used as a screensaver or background photo. Inappropriate media includes, but is not limited to, the presence of guns, weapons, pornographic materials/inappropriately explicit, depictions, language or speech that is vulgar, threatening, defamatory, obscene or harassing, alcohol, drugs, and gang-related symbols or pictures. Students who email, download or share inappropriate media will be disciplined in accordance with Board policy and procedures and the District’s Code of Conduct. If a student receives an inappropriate image or information in an email, it is the student's responsibility to let an adult (teacher, staff member, parent) know.
Passcodes are not to be created to log-on to the District iPad. Do not sign in to Apple IDs or other cloud-based services.
Students may not ever share district-issued passcodes / passwords with other individuals, This includes the passcode / password used for email, Google, PowerSchool, Schoology, and other approved apps or websites with Google sign in.
3.5 Sound, Music, Games, or Programs
Sound must be muted at all times unless permission is obtained from the teacher for instructional purposes. The classroom teacher may add music to the District iPad. No Internet games (sites) or apps are to be used or installed on a student device, except through the District Self Service system or as directed by the classroom teacher. If game apps are to be installed, it will be at the discretion and guidance of a Glenview School District 34 staff member. District provided software/apps must be installed and available on the District iPad at all times or accessible through Self Service. Data storage will be through apps on the District iPad and through Glenview School District 34’s Google Docs for Education accounts.
Online music is not currently a portion of the Glenview 34 student experience. Students are instructed to not utilize online music systems and will be disciplined accordingly based on the grade and infraction. Based on limitations with Apple, Glenview District 34 reserves the right to allow or deny music to each device based on what is possible with both Apple and our filtering system. Glenview District 34 continues to work with Apple to manage music apps on all student devices. For those who prefer no access to any music (Apple Radio Stations, Online Music, others), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (Executive Director of Educational Technology) and he will work with you individually to place limitations on the student device.
Printing will not be available with the District iPad at school.
3.7 Home Internet Access
When using the District iPad outside of the District, the student is bound by the same policies, procedures, and guidelines as when the student is at school. Students will be responsible for control of the iPad, including the use of the iPad by family members or others at home. Students are allowed to access free wireless networks on their District iPads. It is incumbent upon parents to monitor and manage student Internet activity while at home. It is the prerogative of the parents to limit or restrict their child’s District iPad use, including access to the Internet, at home. The District iPads will be filtered at home with the same configuration that is utilized at school. During the 2019 – 2020 school year, the district will be utilizing the Securly Filtering solution. Students who attempt to access inappropriate materials while at home will be disciplined in the same manner as those with infractions throughout the school day.
4.1 Apple ID
The District no longer utilizes Apple ID’s to help manage our student devices. Nobody is to sign in with Apple IDs or other cloud-based services.
4.2 Saving to the District iPad/SD34 Network Resources
Students may save work directly on the District iPad. It is recommended that students also save documents to their SD34 Google Docs for Education account. In addition, students are able to email documents to themselves, parents (select times of year), and/or their teacher. Please note: Storage space will be available on the District iPad, but it is LIMITED and it will NOT be backed up in case of re-imaging or device malfunction. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that work is not lost due to mechanical failure or accidental deletion. If an iPad malfunction occurs, the student will need to initiate a call, email, or in-person conversation with the teacher to explain the situation. Each situation will be resolved on a case-‐by-‐case basis.
4.3 Network Connectivity
Glenview School District 34 makes no guarantee that their network will be up and running 100% of the time. In the rare case that the network is down, the District will not be responsible for lost or missing data.
5.1 SOPPA (Student Online Personal Protection Act)
The Illinois Student Online Personal Protection Act (SOPPA) protects the privacy and security of student data that is received and maintained by educational technology companies that provide web-based services to the District. Below you will find a summary of efforts the School District follows to comply with this new data privacy law.
The School District will:
Annually post a list of all operators of online services or applications utilized by the district
We must update our website or posting location by July 1st and January 1st annually.
Annually notify parents at the beginning of the school year of all data elements that the school collects, maintains, or discloses to any ”operator” as that term is defined in SOPPA. This information must also explain how the school uses the data, and to whom and why it discloses the data.
On the District website:
Post contracts with each operator within 10 days of signing.
Annually post subcontractors used by each operator.
Post the process for how parents can exercise their rights to inspect, review and correct information maintained by the school, operator, or ISBE.
Post data breaches within 10 days and notify parents within 30 days.
Maintain reasonable security procedures and practices. Agreements with vendors in which information is shared must include a provision that the vendor maintains reasonable security procedures and practices.
Additional information about the District’s compliance with SOPPA is available on the Student and Family Resource Dashboard on the DIstrict’s website: glenview34.org.
5.2 COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act)
One of the important realities of taking advantage of the wealth of online learning tools available to us and to our students is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). This law applies to websites and online services (including mobile apps) and governs the collection and use of personal information from children under 13. When we work with a 3rd party site, we must operate within the constraints of the law.
In many cases, online services comply with the law by explicitly granting school districts the ability to create and manage accounts on behalf of students under age 13; however, many companies do not. The FTC recommends that all websites and online services – particularly those directed to children – post privacy policies online so visitors can easily learn about the operator’s information practices.
Glenview School District 34 uses several educational web-based tools and applications operated by third parties, including but not limited to Google Apps for Education (GSuite), Schoology, IXL Math, Seesaw, and similar services. Under COPPA, these websites must obtain parental consent or the consent of a school district on behalf of parents before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.
Glenview District 34 contracts with website operators that follow the COPPA requirements and are used solely for educational purposes. Glenview District 34 values your child’s privacy and strives to ensure parents are aware of the web-based tools and applications we use and the nature of personal information that will be collected and used by those tools and applications. To access all Apps, please access https://sdpc.a4l.org/district_listing.php?districtID=5758
The district will provide all parents an online list of sites being utilized throughout each academic school year. Because sites and apps may be added throughout the year, please look online for updates. If you have any questions, please contact your building Principal, Instructional Innovation Specialist, or Brian Engle (Assistant Superintendent For Instructional Innovation).
5.3 Child Internet Protection Act (CIPA)
The school is required by CIPA to have technology measures and policies in place that protect students from harmful materials including those that are obscene and pornographic. This means that student email is filtered. Mail containing harmful content from inappropriate sites will be blocked. CIPA - http://fcc.gov/cgb/consumerfacts/cipa.html
5.4 Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA protects the privacy of student education records and gives parents rights to review student records. Under FERPA, schools may disclose directory information (name, phone, address, grade level, etc...) but parents may request that the school not disclose this information by sending a written request to the Director of Communications.
The school will not publish confidential education records (grades, student ID #, etc.) for public viewing on the Internet.
The school may publish student work and photos for public viewing but will not publish student last names or other personally identifiable information.
Parents may request that photos, names and general directory information about their children not be published. For more information on how to do this, contact the Director of Communications, Cathy Kedjidjian.
Parents have the right at any time to investigate the contents of their child’s email and Apps for Education files.
5.5 Originally Installed Software/Apps
The software/apps originally distributed by Glenview School District 34 must remain on the District iPad in usable condition and be easily accessible at all times. From time to time, the school may add software/apps for use in a particular course. Periodic checks of District iPads will be made to ensure that students have not removed required apps or have added apps that are not authorized by the school.
5.6 Additional Software
Students are not allowed to load extra software apps on their District iPads or attach their District iPad to a home computer unless approved by or otherwise directed to do so by their teachers or school staff. Glenview School District 34 will facilitate the distribution of apps required on the District iPads. Students are not allowed to synchronize District iPads, sync District iPads to iTunes accounts, or add non-‐SD34 apps to their assigned District iPad without prior approval.
5.7 Procedure for re‐loading software
If technical difficulties occur or illegal software non-‐SD34 apps are discovered, the District iPad will be restored from backup. The District does not accept responsibility for the loss of any software or documents deleted due to a reformat and re‐image.
5.8 Software upgrades
Upgrade versions of licensed software/apps are available from time to time. The District will provide opportunities to update all District iPads through planned communication to students and staff.
5.9 District Monitoring
The safety and well-being of the District’s students is of paramount importance and that includes the social-emotional behaviors exhibited by students through the use of the District iPad. The District utilizes third-party software to monitor student web searches and text-based communications and work product on the District iPad. Through the monitoring software, designated District personnel are alerted when a student uses the District iPad to engage in conduct that is threatening or harmful to the student or another student (e.g., bullying, suicidal ideation, etc.) or which is otherwise a violation of District rules (e.g., pornography). When an alert is received, it is forwarded to the appropriate school personnel for intervention. THE DISTRICT DISCLAIMS ANY DUTY TO MONITOR ALERTS OUTSIDE NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS. STUDENTS AND PARENTS SHOULD NOT EXPECT THAT ALERTS WILL BE ADDRESSED OUTSIDE NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS. IT IS HIGHLY LIKELY THAT ALERTS RECEIVED OUTSIDE OF NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS WILL NOT BE ADDRESSED UNTIL THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY. Therefore, parents must be aware that they maintain primary responsibility for monitoring their children’s health, well-being, safety and use of the DIstrict iPad.
6.1 Statement of Responsibility
By using the District iPad, the student agrees to abide by all Board policies and rules, including, but not limited to (see section 1.0) -Policy 6:235 - Access to Electronic Networks, Policy 7:180 -‐ Bullying and Harassment, and Policy 7:190 -‐ Student Discipline. The use of Glenview School District 34’s technology and network is a privilege, not a right. The privilege of using the technology resources provided by Glenview School District 34 is not transferable. This Handbook is provided to make all users aware of the responsibilities associated with acceptable, efficient, ethical, and lawful use of technology resources. If a student violates any Board policies or procedures or any provisions of this Handbook, that student’s privilege to use a District iPad may be terminated, access to the District technology resources may be denied, and the appropriate disciplinary action shall be applied in accordance with Board policy and the Glenview School District 34 Code of Conduct.
Internet access is available on every computer with network access in Glenview School District 34. Network Administrators will make reasonable efforts to maintain reliable service. The District cannot, however, absolutely guarantee that the system will always be available or operating correctly.
There is no expectation of privacy for any communication made using the District iPad or for any content stored on the District iPad. The District reserves the right to inspect the District iPad and its contents at any time and for any reason.
The student is responsible for what he/she says and does with the District iPad and on the District network. Communication with thousands of others is quick and easy. Therefore, it is important for the user to stop and think before communicating and to show respect for other people and for their ideas.
6.2 Parent/Guardian Responsibilities
Talk to your student about values and the standards that your student should follow on the use of the Internet just as you would on the use of all media information sources such as television, telephones, movies, and radio. The District will provide all District iPads with filtered Internet both inside and outside the school. The District, however, is not responsible if the home filtering does not work and/or unintentionally provides access to inappropriate materials. The District is also not responsible for monitoring a student’s Internet activity outside of school. The parent/guardian agrees to be solely responsible for supervising their child’s use and control of the District iPad, including Internet access, when their child is not at school. If the parent/guardian does not wish to assume this responsibility, this should be indicated on the Student and Parent Pledge for District iPad Use form and arrangements will then be made for the student to leave the District iPad at school.
6.3 School Responsibilities
Provide Internet and email access to its students. Provide Internet and email filtering of inappropriate materials through our District filtering system. The District is not responsible for monitoring a student’s Internet activity outside of school. The District has acted in good faith and in a reasonable manner in selecting and implementing filtering software, blocking software, and other technology protection measures to prevent access to material which is obscene, pornographic, or, with respect to use of computers by minors, harmful to minors. Nevertheless, by using the Network, users acknowledge that such technology measures do not prevent access to all prohibited material, and may prevent access to non-‐prohibited material. The District assumes no responsibility for access gained or denied by the technology protection measures that have been implemented.
Provide network data storage areas. Glenview School District 34 reserves the right to review, monitor, and restrict information stored on or transmitted via District iPads, and to investigate inappropriate use of technology resources.
Provide staff guidance to aid students in doing research and help monitor student compliance of the Access to Electronic Networks policy.
6.4 Student Responsibilities
If a student should receive email or other electronic message containing inappropriate or abusive language or if the subject matter is questionable, he/she is asked to bring the device to the school office.

Protecting student data is of the utmost importance to Glenview School District 34. Student data is protected through comprehensive privacy policies and security measures such as firewalls, secure servers, intrusion detection software, and other methods.
In 2019, the Illinois Governor signed the Student Online Personal Protection Act that controls how the online information and data schools collect is used. In compliance, Glenview School District 34 only collects information that directly relates to school activities and safeguards the privacy of students and confidentiality of student data.
Glenview District 34 adheres to the following applicable laws regarding student data and privacy:
Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment (PPRA)
District 34 Technology Policies and Guidelines
- 6:235 Access to Electronic Networks and Acceptable Use Policy
- 7:345 Use of Educational Technologies; Student Data Privacy and Security
The District believes in the benefits of technology to educators and students, Including the Internet and other on-line services. The use of the District’s electronic network and devices must at all times be consistent with the educational and other objectives of the District. All users of the District’s electronic network and devices must comply with established guidelines and sign-off on the AUP - Access to Electronic Networks (Board Policy 6:235), 1:1 Handbook, and Google Apps Parent Permission Form. Students and their parents/guardians are required to sign a Student Use Consent and Waiver form before being granted use of any technology device within Glenview School District 34. Access to the District’s electronic network and devices, including the 1:1 program, is a privilege, not a right, and may be denied or revoked at any time. Inappropriate use of the system may result in a loss of privileges, disciplinary action, and/or appropriate legal action.
Glenview School District 34 is a 1:1 district. The focus of our 1:1 Personal Learning Initiative is to provide tools and resources to the 21st Century Learner. Excellence in education requires that technology be seamlessly integrated throughout the educational program. According to studies and school reports, students who use a computing device in a 1:1 educational environment are more organized and engaged learners, attend school more regularly, advance their knowledge and understanding of technology, and become constructors and designers of information and ideas. The personalized, mobile, and individual use of an iPad is a way to empower students to maximize their full potential and to prepare them for future learning. Learning happens from a continuous dynamic interaction among students, educators, parents and the extended educational community. Technology immersion does not diminish the vital role of the teacher. Effective teaching and learning with iPads, integrate technology into the curriculum anytime, anyplace.
One of the important realities of taking advantage of the wealth of online learning tools available to us and to our students is the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). This law applies to websites and online services (including mobile apps) and governs the collection and use of personal information from children under 13. When we work with a 3rd party site, we must operate within the constraints of the law. Please review section 5.1 COPPA (Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act) of the District iPad 1:1 Personal Learning Initiative - Student/Parent Handbook - Policies, Procedures and Information.
It is the intention of the Board of Education to provide a safe and secure learning environment for the students in its schools and to structure the possession of cell phones so that student welfare and safety and the educational environment are not adversely affected. Therefore, every classroom in the district maintains a telephone that students are able to access with teacher permission. The possession and use of cell phones at the middle and intermediate school level are to be used in emergency situations and not merely for convenience. Students must have parent permission prior to being able to bring a cell phone to school. Please reference the Middle and Intermediate School Cell Phone Use Agreement Form.
