The Grand Prairie Independent School District’s Board of Trustees approved the distribution of one-to-one iPads for all students in grades 6th – 12th during the June Board Meeting.
Grand Prairie ISD will not charge a fee for the use of mobile devices issued to students.
GPISD will provide Optional Insurance to help parents and students guard against accidental damage or loss. (Details can be found in the “Optional Student Insurance” link found here.)
In the event the mobile device is stolen, the parent or student must report the theft to the campus administration and the local law enforcement agency as soon as possible.
Students with outstanding fees will be issued a loaner mobile device. The loaner may not be taken home. Each day the student is responsible for picking up the mobile device in the morning and returning the device at the end of the day.
All iPads issued to students have protective cases. These cases may not be remove or replaced in lieu of personally owned cases.
Stickers that are made of vinyl and do not leave residue or damage the case/device may be applied to the case.
Stickers that identify the device belonging to a person may be applied to the device. Under no circumstances may a sticker be applied to any mobile device itself.
Using iPads at Home
First attach to the home WIFI with Settings -> WIFI
Then open one of the browsers and try to go to a website. When prompted by ContentKeeper, put in your computer login:
username: student ID
password: complex/birthday password
If you get to the website, then you know you are successfully on the Internet.
Then you can open any app like Canvas. Most apps need the Internet, so you need to go to a browser first every single time you are home to use your iPad. You need to be prompted for ContentKeeper and login in with your credentials.
- Students are to keep the Passcode given by the district.
- Students are to keep the district Apple ID and not change to their own.
