Iowa Technology Requirements

Overview

Enrolled students are offered a school-issued computer for their educational use. Families are provided the opportunity to opt-out.

 

Families acknowledge the following items related to technology requirements during the enrollment process.

My student and I understand that the computer and equipment provided are the property of the school and we are responsible for the daily care and maintenance – including reasonable precaution against damage, theft or loss. If lost or damaged, we will notify the school immediately. In the event of theft, we will also file a police report. If the damages or theft are a result of my own carelessness, coverage will not be made available and I will be responsible for the full replacement cost of the computer.

Internet Speed Requirements:

Home Internet Users will need for bandwidth, at least 1.0 Mbits/second upstream and 2 Mbits/second downstream. Mobile Device Users using data network, we recommend 4G LTI for best results or minimum 3G Network to use audio, view presentation content, and receive screen sharing. For connection via wireless, we recommend private versus public networks. For device settings, we recommend reducing device usage while connecting to online courses. As the student’s parent/guardian I acknowledge and agree to the minimum requirements for using a non-school provided device to access the Accel Management Platform (for Education), also known as AMP. Minimum requirements may vary depending on the device and browser being used.
