Our research has indicated that standardization of equipment is very important to the overall success of an iPad Initiative and in technology education. Our staff will be better able to address technical issues when the equipment is identical and management is standardized by the school. In addition, iPads, licenses, apps, and e books, are benefited with educational and volume discounts in Trinity School’s name. Students will have the exact same iPad model. For those who already have an iPad at home, think of it as a personal device and their school iPad as a work device. The annual book fee will cover the cost of all books and apps instead of being billed like in the past as purchased and consumed. The technology fee will cover the cost of the iPad and after the fee is paid and the student finishes school then the iPad is theirs for personal use. All settings will be returned to factory settings like new after graduation or transition.
