The Wood River Rural school District recognizes that with the implementation of the iPad Initiative there is a need to protect the investment by both the District and the student/Parent. the Following outlines the School District Protection Plan.
School District Protection
The Wood River Rural School District Protection Plan is available for students and parents to cover iPad repairs or replacement in the event of theft, loss, accidental damage, or maintenance. The Protection cost will be $35 annually for each iPad. Yearly School District Protection Plan fees will be placed into an account to self-fund iPad repairs and replacement. This plan will include one replacement. Additional replacements will cost the student/parent the full value of an iPad (approximately $600). Parents will need to purchase this protection plan through the Wood River Rural High School office at orientation before their student is allowed to check out an iPad computer. Also, high school students and their parent/guardian will be required to attend orientation training at Wood River Rural High School before they will be allowed to check out an iPad.
Personal Home or Homeowners insurance coverage
If students or parents wish to carry their own additional personal insurance to protect the iPad in cases of theft, loss, or accidental damage, they should consult their insurance agent for details about their personal coverage of the iPad computer. Most insurances companies will require a rider for electronics and only provide so much coverage and generally a higher deductible.
In cases of theft, vandalism, or other criminal acts, a police report, or in the case of a fire, a fire report must be filed by the student or parent for the protection coverage to take place. A copy of the police/fire report must be provided to the school office. In the case of intentional damage, the student/parents are responsible for full payment. The School District Protection Plan DOES NOT cover intentional damage of the iPads.
Student users agree not to publish anything offensive on the INTERNET. The use of profanity or abusive language is prohibited. No advertising or soliciting of other users for profit is allowed. No one will use the INTERNET for any illegal activities.
It is important that you as parents understand that INTERNET provides access to computers all over the world. Because of that access, and the fact that no one can control the content of the contributions to this network you need to be aware of the existence of some materials that might be offensive.
We encourage parents to actively participate in the learning situations that the network will provide your children. In that way you will be monitoring for appropriate use at home. It will be considered inappropriate to bring any objectionable materials form the network to school. The discipline policies of the school will apply to any violations of appropriate use. The student may lose their access to the network of infractions.
