iPad Pledge Highlights I will follow Belton ISD’s Student Technology User Agreement and the Mobile Computing Device Guidelines. I will never leave the iPad unattended or loan my iPad to other individuals. I will arrive at school with my iPad fully charged. I will protect the screen cover from scratches, food and beverages since they may cause damage to it. I will keep the protective cover intact including the port covers and shield.
iPad Pledge Highlights I will not disassemble or try to repair any part of my iPad or attempt any repairs possibly voiding the warranty. I will protect my iPad by storing it in the protective cover provided by the District. I will install the district’s mobile device management system and keep it installed on the device. I understand that my iPad is subject to inspection at any time without notice and that it remains the property of Belton ISD.
iPad Pledge Highlights I will return the iPad issued to me to the campus at the end of each school year. If I withdraw, am suspended or expelled, or terminate enrollment at BISD for any reason, I will return the school-issued iPad on the date of termination.

You are in charge at home Make a plan for how you will manage the technology at home. Some ideas include Creating a scheduled time for working on the device Designating a place in your home for working online Designating a place to charge the device over night so that you remember it in the morning.
Internet Access at Home Students do not have access to the Internet from your home unless you provide it for them. Public Internet access at the public library, many restaurants and several businesses. http://www.beltonwireless.com/locations/
Don’t want them online after school? As the parent, feel free to see what your child is working on. Please take up the iPad at home until it is convenient for you to monitor your child.
Internet Access at Home We realize many of your students have access to the Internet from their phones or at home, and you are already working with them to be safe online. We want to continue to partner with you to teach your child to use the Internet responsibly and efficiently.
Internet Access at School Internet access at school will continue to be filtered and monitored by BISD
