Devices @ SIS

At SIS, we have two separate 1:1 programs to support student learning. Grades 4 through 8 are supported by a 1:1 iPad program and have access to shared MacBooks when needed. Grades 9 through 12 participate in a 1:1 Macbook program.

Safe and effective use of devices

At SIS, we believe in developing safe and responsible learners who can adapt to the ever-changing digital landscape. Our learning community is made up of students, teachers, support staff and parents. We firmly believe that both school and home play an equal role in ensuring children have safe and positive experiences online. While on campus students are supported through both the THINK program and NetBox Blue's SafeChat features built into our school network.

Please review and understanding the following expectations for home and school.
