iPad Return

Students return their iPad at the end of Senior year or at the end of Spring Semester during a refresh year for students in 9th-11th grade:
  • Senior students will return their iPad when graduation materials are distributed. Each student must return their iPad to receive their graduation materials and participate in the graduation ceremony.
  • In a refresh year, all other students will turn their iPad in to a teacher during their last class of the school year. The schedule will be provided to students near the end of the year to prepare for this process. In the event that students turn in their iPad before final exams are taken, physical resources will be provided to help students prepare for their exams.

All students should backup their iPad to iCloud. It is also strongly recommended to create a secondary backup for important documents from the iPad or saved to iCloud using Google Drive, OneDrive, and/or a personal account. See these pages for help backing up your data and documents:
iCloud Backup Notability -> Google Drive Photo/Media -> OneDrive
Students have 200GB of storage to backup their device data & documents; this is strongly recommended for all students Backing up Notability documents to Google Drive or another file storage area in addition to iCloud is strongly recommended in case the app crashes and documents are removed from the app. Photos and other media can easily be backed up to OneDrive with one button, rather than worrying about individually sending to another device such as a phone.
Need to transfer a Google Drive document to a personal account? See this page for information about transferring ownership of a document saved on Google Drive.
