Frequently Asked Questions
CAN STUDENTS BRING THEIR PERSONAL DEVICE?
If your child is in a grade using devices provided by the District, he/she will be asked to use a school-issued device due to app licensing and the instructional materials that will be loaded on the devices for classroom learning.
CAN TEACHERS REQUEST APPS?
We do have an online request system for teachers to request apps. This information will be shared at our back-to-school training.
DO STUDENTS USE THE DEVICE IN ALL CLASSES?
West Fargo teachers have the discretion of allowing or not allowing the use of electronic devices during instructional time. The versatility of the device's touch screen and built in keyboard make it an ideal tool for all subjects, from art to history.
When teachers permit the use of electronic devices, students must adhere to district technology policies, use the devices for educational purposes only, and must not cause a distraction or disruption to the learning environment.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A STUDENT BREAKS THE DEVICE?
Students who damage their device will be charged a $25 repair fee on the first occurrence and $75 on the second occurrence. Any student who intentional damages their device will be charged full cost for repairing or replacing device.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A STUDENT'S DEVICE IS TAKEN AWAY FOR IMPROPER USE?
A loaner device will be provided during the school day.
