Tech @ SMA


In selecting an iPad case, the three most important requirements are:

  1. Impact protection for the corners, sides and back (plastic or rubber is best). Fabric cases do not last or protect well so they not allowed!
  2. Protection for the glass screen when not in use.
  3. The ability to prop the iPad up at an angle for better typing ergonomics.

Where is the responsible use policy?

It is included in the Parent-Student Handbook.
