D29 iPad & Chromebook Support for Parents and Students
Laptop and Tablet This page is designed to provide support and guidance for Sunset Ridge School District 29 parents regarding the use of student iPads in school and at home.

For the past several years we have increased the number of iPads and Chromebooks in the District so that each student in grades K-8 are assigned their own device.  Students in grades 4-8 will be assigned Chromebooks and have the option to take their device home.  Grade 3 will have a Chromebook assigned to them but it will stay at school.  Grades K-2 will have an iPad to use in school this year.  We currently deploy District approved apps for iPads through a Mobile Device Management System (MDM) designed to catalog approved apps by grade level. We encourage parents to review the lists of approved apps.  We will deploy apps through Class Link, a new system we have put into place. 

Before school starts, students attending Sunset Ridge will attend a Chromebook boot camp to learn the process for caring for their device and an understanding of the rules and responsibilities for technology use in the District as well as the costs associated with damage or loss of Chromebooks, iPads, cases, chargers and USB cords.

While in school, student Chromebooks and iPads will have age appropriate restrictions and filtering of content.  At home, it will be the responsibility of a parent/guardian to monitor and restrict iPad use.  Links to resources below will address many questions and concerns that parents may have regarding appropriate Chromebook/iPad use in school and at home as well as some helpful tips.
