- I will not install Apps to the iPad without permission from my teachers.

PARENT and FAMILY MEMBER Agreement:
- I/we understand that the use of the device means that the student agrees to follow the APS Network and Computer Acceptable Use Agreement (if you are not able to access the URL, but would like to read the complete terms, we will provide you with a copy).
- I/we understand that the use of the iPad at home beyond assigned schoolwork should follow my family’s appropriate rules on Internet and digital resources access.
- APS Internet filtering does not always work at home, therefore parental supervision is required.
