Dear Parent / Guardian,
If your child is currently registered in one of Grades 7 to 10 at the LKDSB – then they are a participant in our one-to-one Technology Enriched Learning Program (TELP). As part of that program they have received an iPad for their sole use and are allowed to take it home. This privilege is subject to their continued acceptable use of the device.
Please note that we conduct in-person and remote checks of applications installed on LKDSB iPads. If your child is found to have a specific application installed on their device that contravenes our Responsible Use of Technology (RUT) - Administrative Procedure, please be aware that they will be called down to the office and will be asked to remove it. For those parents wanting to know more about how technology use is structured and regulated within the Lambton Kent District School Board you can click on the link provided below which is a highly readable one page LKDSB summary of RUT. The full RUT Admin Procedure (A-PR-200-18) is available under the Policies and Procedures section of the LKDSB website.
Responsible Use of Technology (RUT)
In the ongoing interest of student safety, we will continue to conduct random checks of iPads in future, and if there are further contraventions of board policies, we may, unfortunately, need to take further action. This may include temporary loss of use of the LKDSB iPad, or if an unacceptable App is repeatedly installed – a removal of the iPad entirely.
We appreciate your support for student safety and if there are any questions, please do not hesitate to make contact with your local school administrator.
