Procedures & Guidelines

Students assume full responsibility for the care and use of the device they bring to school. APS cannot require students to bring their own devices to school.

Individuals are permitted to use personal technology devices in accordance with the Empowered Digital Learner Guidelines. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in the temporary or permanent revocation of use privileges, in addition to any other disciplinary action that may be taken.

Classroom Expectations

  • Students will work within the existing classroom curriculum. Teachers will utilize web-based resources such as Google Apps For Education and Cloud Storage for student productivity. Teachers will now have continual access to technology for instruction and no longer have to compete for laptop carts or labs.
  • Devices brought to school should only be used during class time when approved by the teacher. Students should only have their devices out for educational purposes. If they are not using them for class they should be stored away in a secure location, which will be established on a classroom-by-classroom basis.
