  • Topics: Schedule Pick-up – Aug. 7th Proof of Residency Freshman Orientation – Aug. 17th New Bell Schedule Eagle Club Benefit Open House – Sept 3rd D5 Mobile Device Rollout Student Parking Construction Update Hello Eagle Family, The beginning of the 2013-2014 school year is fast approaching, and we are getting ready for students to return on Tuesday, August 20th. The 2012-2013 school year brought a lot of change to Chapin High, and I am proud that the Eagle Family continued its tradition of excellence in academics, arts, and athletics in the midst of constant change. We are recognized nationally for educational excellence by US News and World Report, Newsweek Magazine, and The Washington Post. I have always argued that the landscape of education is changing fast. The upcoming school year will present new changes that will require the Eagle Family to work as a team. These changes include but are not limited to: the transition to the Common Core State Standards, the District Issued Mobile Device rollout for high school students, the use of All-In-Learning for Data Teams, the Schools of Study Choice Initiative, and the constant change of the construction project. I am confident that the tradition of excellence established by the Eagle Family will allow us to continue to excel. The faculty and staff of Chapin High School is committed to maximizing the potential of each student and preparing them all for productive lives. We aRe Chapin! Dr. Ross Principal

  • Mind the GAP District 5 Mobile Device Rollout Project Overview In order for today's students to compete in a global society, they must possess the 21st century skills that will make them excellent communicators, creators, critical thinkers, and collaborators. District Five is implementing the iFive Project to ensure that our teachers will have the tools they need to provide the very best instruction and that all students will have the tools they need to perform at optimum levels and to compete globally. In preparation for the District Issued Mobile Device rollout for high school students, we have put several training programs in place for our teachers and are upgrading the school’s technology infrastructure to support the new learning environment. We have dedicated new technical resources to both teacher training and student support, and we have an excited staff that will greet our students in August. The District Issued Mobile Device will be a dynamic new teaching tool. We have updated our Student Acceptable Use Policy Agreement that outlines responsible student use of technology to reflect the addition of the District Issued Mobile Devices. Important Dates September 3 - 4: Seniors & Juniors receive their device through English Class September 5 - 6: Sophomores & Freshmen receive their device through English Class Parent Education Sessions: Saturday, August 17 – 8:00 a.m. – 9:30 a.m. – Freshman Parents as part of Freshman Orientation Saturday, August 17 – 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. – Parents of Sophomores, Juniors & Seniors Tuesday, Sept. 3rd – 5:30 p.m. Gymnasium Other sessions will be scheduled as needed. Before your student receives a Personal Mobile Device Review and sign the Student Acceptable Use Policy Agreement, available online, during schedule pick-up, or at the school’s front desk. Accept or decline the Optional Protection Plan, which covers many forms of damage. As stated in the Student Acceptable Use Policy Agreement, families are responsible for any damage or loss of the District Issued Mobile Device. We encourage families to consider purchasing the Optional Protection Plan.

What your student can expect on Distribution Day If parents have completed and turned in both the Student Acceptable Use Policy Agreement and Optional Protection Plan form (accepted or declined) by August 21st, each student will receive his or her District Issued Mobile Device on his or her assigned distribution day. If a student’s paperwork is turned in after August 21st, he/she will receive the device at the make- up distribution session, on Wednesday, September 11 starting at 8:00 a.m. in the Media Center. On distribution day, each student will receive an iPad Mini, a wall charger with USB connection and a case. Students will attend an orientation session during their English classes where they will register the devices and access the district-provided apps. We recommend that students do not leave their devices at school or in their lockers. Apps, software, and cases These mobile devices will come with protective covers issued by the district. District-sponsored Apps will be available to students through the preloaded portal using their Novell login information on their personal mobile device. Additionally, each device will be preloaded with The Student Guide to the iFive Project Website. Important Information for Parents Our Technology Integration Specialist and Teacher Technology Leaders are hosting optional Parent Education Meetings: Saturday, August 17th and Tuesday, Sept. 3rd. At these meetings, you will have a chance to meet school staff and learn more about this initiative. At home, parents should monitor the student’s device and his/her Internet access. Please visit the school’s iFive Program Tab (iParents) for information about filtering your Internet at home and protecting your child’s online privacy. Reminders Ownership – The school owns the device. Families are responsible for any damage or loss of the device.
