1:1 iPad Program FAQs

Cum doctus civibus efficiantur in. Nec id tempor imperdiet deterruisset.

What is a 1:1 iPad program?

A 1:1 program represents the most comprehensive technology integration program available for instructional purposes. It requires that every student involved in the program have direct access to a personal computing device at all times.

How much will it cost? What does the cost cover? What are the options for payment?

Students will incur a separate annual technology fee for each year they attend Bishop Verot. This fee is in addition to tuition and cannot be waived nor reduced or eliminated by school sponsored tuition assistance

Is it covered under any insurance plan? What happens if I damage or lose?

Insurance is included in your yearly lease cost. Students will incur a $150 deductible for each claim made and the school will repair the iPad. In the case of theft from a car or home, it may be covered under your personal insurance plan.

My child already has an iPad; can he/she use it?

Incoming freshman students starting with the class of 2017 will be required to lease their iPads through Bishop Verot. The students will have this iPad for all four years at Bishop Verot. Upon graduation, students will own the iPad outright.

How will you manage the devices?

Bishop Verot will utilize a Mobile Device Management suite installed on each iPad. The MDM suite allows us to register each device on our server, where we can control the settings of the device, apply rules, and remotely lock/wipe and send out over the air software updates.

What happens when I graduate- do I keep it or is it the schools property?

If a student leases an iPad for all four years and graduates from Bishop Verot, they will own the iPad. After graduation, the school will remove the MDM system, thus taking the schools’ control off of the iPad.
