The $175 technology fee includes use of an iPad Air (charger and cable) device cover, device stand, CDH required apps, troubleshooting and repairs (additional fees required for damage due to negligence or intentional mishandling), and use of a substitute device if repairs are needed (subject to availability).
Use of Personally Owned iPads
Those choosing to use a personally-owned iPad (must be iPad 2 or newer) will be charged a $75 technology fee to cover apps and other program expenses. Note that students are subject to the provisions of the CDH iPad Policy and Acceptable Use Policy regardless of whether they are using a school-owned or personally-owned device. This may limit the personal apps and material that can be stored on the iPad. The iPad must be available to the student each school day, as well as outside of school hours for homework. CDH staff will provide only very limited basic troubleshooting for personally-owned devices.
CDH iPads cannot be purchased at the end of the school year or after graduation.
All iPads must be returned at the end of the school year and cannot be purchased. CDH expects students to use the iPad Air at least through the 2017-18 school year.
