Do I have to purchase an iPad for my student?

​It is the goal of Chinook Trail Elementary for every 4th and 5th grader to have an iPad as a part of their learning toolkit. We offer equity devices for those who wish to pursue other options. Please complete the equity device application in order to receive one of these devices.

What sort of web surfing controls are in place?

Any device that connects to district Wi-Fi is managed by a district filter that controls internet surf content. 

My child has many games on their device, how will you prevent them from playing them at school?

Through diligent supervision, classroom management and support of staff and peers. Students are taught through direct instruction and create a culture of learning with their devices. It is of great help to us as a staff if you place all ‘at home games’ in a folder on your child’s iPad.

How does Chinook Trail handle the safety and security of the devices?

​All devices are locked inside the classroom when students are staff are not present. Teachers have a secure lockbox in the event that an iPad is left after school hours.

How often are the iPads used during each school day?

​The iPad is a tool for learning. Depending on the day, students might utilize their iPad more frequently than others. Teachers strive to choose the right tool to facilitate the best learning environment for students.
