West Reading Elementary Center

1:1 Initiative User Agreement  


2023-2024 Apple iPad User Agreement 


The purpose of this Agreement is to establish the rules and conditions under which an Apple iPad (1:1 device) is issued to a student enrolled at the Wyomissing Area School District (WASD). This Agreement is  for the 2023-2024 school year unless it is modified by the WASD. The WASD student and his/her  parents/guardians must understand and sign this Agreement before the student may take possession of  the device. If a student or parent/guardian does not understand any part of this Agreement, he/she  should ask for an explanation or clarification. 

The Purpose of the Device 

The purpose of providing an electronic 1:1 device is to support and enhance the education of the WASD  student. The WASD teachers and staff will integrate technology and the 1:1 device into the curriculum  when appropriate. The 1:1 device will play a role in developing the knowledge and skills to be successful  in the 21st century. 

Student Responsibilities and Prohibited Use 

1. The student and parents/guardians must know that the use of the 1:1 device conveys no expectation of privacy. WASD reserves the right to inspect, monitor, and search school owned property for the purpose of determining if any policy has been violated, or when an inspection is necessary to ensure safety and compliance with state and federal laws. 

a. Any authorized WASD staff member has the right to halt any activity involving a 1:1 device that may cause a disruption to the educational process or compromise the safety of any student. 

b. The student will provide their 1:1 device to an authorized WASD staff member immediately upon request. The device is the property of WASD and was provided for instructional purposes.
