Technology - 1:1 Program Overview

Lower School
SSFS provides all the needed school technology like iPads and Chromebooks. All apps and other needed technology will be provided by the school.

Middle School
Middle school students will continue to have family-owned iPads for daily school use. Rising 6th - 8th grade students can continue to use the iPads they currently own. New students to the Middle School will be expected to purchase an iPad for school use (see iPad system requirements).

Upper School
Our Upper School has a Bring Your Own Device program, also known as "BYOD." All students in the Upper School must have a mobile device available on a daily basis for school work. This device can be an iPad, Windows laptop, Mac laptop, Chromebook, Android tablet, or other similar device. Because of its keyboard and screen size, a mobile phone is not considered an adequate device for school. The device must meet these minimum requirements.

Purchasing and Repair Options

Device purchase: All family-owned iPads or BYOD devices will need to be purchased from an outside retailer. As a convenience for our families, SSFS has worked with the company DSR that can provide SSFS-approved devices for students. Contact orders@dsr-inc.com or call 410-579-4508 and tell them you are from SSFS.

It is extremely important to purchase good protective cases for these devices and also a service plan for getting the devices repaired should it become damaged. A service plan like AppleCare or Worth Avenue is strongly recommended.

Loaner Program: SSFS has an iPad loaner program that is used to help students maintain their mobile device used for school work while their iPad is being repaired. An iPad will be loaned to students for up to two weeks during this repair cycle. All students have access to this program.

Device repair: SSFS will continue to provide device service support for iPads purchased through the School in years prior to the 2016-2017 school year. SSFS does not offer repair services for devices that were not purchased through the School.
