Summer Device Checkout

We’re dipping our feet in the waters of letting students take 1:1 devices home for the summer. Whenever I survey schools around here I get mixed answers on whether they are collecting or sending home. I’m curious to know from the broader community what you’re doing. Do you send devices home with students or do you require them to be collected at the end of every year?

We allow grades 5-11 to take devices home over the summer.

We ended up going with a tiered approach this year. We allowed parents to request a checkout and we checked out all summer school student devices out to students 6-12. Homeroom teachers have a spreadsheet that tells them which iPads to inventory and which to send home. We generate this based off summer school registration and parent requests. So far it has gone smooth. We’re offering an opportunity to those who want it and stowing devices for safe keeping for those who don’t.
