St. Vrain Valley Schools provides an iPad to each student in grades K-12. The iPad is intended to be a tool for the student’s and the family’s learning, both in school and at home.
While a basic level of restrictions is set on all school devices through the district’s mobile device management system, families are encouraged to set healthy limits for home use that meet their needs and align with their family values. Below are some resources that may be helpful as you consider family expectations for technology use at home during the school year and over breaks.
