Technology
Technology Summer Procedures and Expectations
Published: Mon, May 15, 2017, 08:58AM CDT

As we approach the end of the school year, CISD wants to inform you of summer procedures and expectations regarding district-owned technology devices. The benefits of learners keeping their devices are worthy of consideration.

CISD believes it is in the best interest of our learners for them to keep their district-owned technology devices over the summer for the following reasons:

1. Semester exam preparedness
iPad return will begin on Thursday, May 18. Therefore, our learners who return their devices will not have access to them during semester exams. Learners who kept their devices last year were able to easily access all course materials for semester exam review purposes. Learners who returned their devices for
summer storage had to save documents, images, etc. to Google Drive so that they could access them; this process took time away from more beneficial exam review activities.

2. Lack of disruption to learning time
Learners who kept their devices last summer were ready for all learning activities on day one of school. Learners who returned their devices for summer storage had to wait two-three weeks before they received their iPads, which was inconvenient for both learners and educators.

3. Access to a device all summer for learning purposes
Learners who keep their devices over the summer can take advantage of various educational apps and websites. (If you need suggestions for educational apps or websites, contact your learner’s teachers or the campus digital learning coach.)

However, if you would like CISD to store your learner’s district-owned technology device over the summer, complete and return this FORM to the library by Tuesday, May 16.
