Elementary End of Year Technology Procedures

End of the Year STUDENT Procedures

Step 1: Decide What to Keep and What Not to Keep

  • Throughout the year, students have been creating learning artifacts on their iPads. If they wish to save files/documents/photos for use next year they will need to back them up to Google Drive. If a student does not want to save their files, they can skip this step.
  • Many apps can be moved to Google Drive. Google files (Docs, Slides, Sheets) are automatically backed up. For complete directions, please visit the following Area 66 post: https://wp.me/p3N8ML-Y3

Step 2: End of Semester Procedures

Please complete these steps BEFORE you leave for the summer on 5/25.

  • Check for, and run all available iOS updates. Go into Settings->General->Software Update.
  • Don’t erase the iPads – Leave the login/ID cards in the case. If any iPads are missing the card, please label the iPad.
  • Inspect the iPads for damage. Please note any cracked screens, broken headphone jacks, etc. with a help desk ticket to Tyler / Emerson.
  • Wipe down the screens of the iPad devices with a soft, microfiber type cloth.
  • On a note taped to the top of your iPad Cart, please indicate any missing iPads or chargers. Include who they were assigned to.
