The KnightPad Program

Forms Available For Printing:  
iPad Protection Plan Agreement   - iPad Protection Plan Application

The CCS  KnightPad 1:1 Program has been in place since 2012, and is entering its fourth school year this Fall.   Our District is committed to providing the benefits of equal access, standardization, and the ability to monitor progress while providing the capacity to  develop and distribute digital content for our students.  We are proud to provide our students with access to a multitude of digital tools that can support their learning both inside and outside of the classroom by fostering creativity, critical thinking and collaboration while at the same time improving communication and organization.  This year the program will be expanding to include students in grades 5 - 12.  


Each year we ask our students and teachers to complete a comprehensive survey to assess how the program is working, what we are doing well and what we need to improve upon to ensure the continued success of the program.  As a result of this feedback, the District has made a commitment to invest in ClamCase solutions for our High School Students.  These cases provide a built in bluetooth keyboard combined with durable protective case that essentially turns the iPad into a lightweight, feature ready laptop.  We are expecting delivery of the cases in the next few weeks, hopefully prior to the initial iPad roll out.


iPad Protection Plans

Application forms and details of plan coverage are available on our website.  ALL students in Grades 5-12 are required to complete the plan application, and submit no later than Thursday, September 3, regardless of the option they choose.  We will be collecting plans at Grade 9 orientation on Monday, August  31, and at Open House on Tuesday, September 1.  There will be staff available in the Library during the entire Open House to answer any questions you may have and to collect application forms.


Forms will be available at school during the listed collection times/places, or feel free to download the forms from our website and complete ahead of time.  


The cost of the plan this year will be:

Individual - $25/per student

Family/Multi-Student - $25 for first child/$10 per subsequent child  


5th Grade Parent/Student KnightPad Meeting

A special meeting for incoming 5th Graders and their parents will be held during Open House - Tuesday, September 1, at 6:00 pm in room 163.  The purpose of the meeting is to share the details of the “CCS KnightPad Program” and how it impacts your child.


Things you can expect at the meeting:

  • An overview of the i-Pad initiative

  • A student & teacher perspective on 1:1 learning

  • An opportunity to learn more about what this means for you and your child(ren)

  • The chance to ask questions about the program

iPad Protection Plans will be available for all families/students at this time.

Catching Up With Your Kids @ CCS

CCS sponsored “Catching Up With Your Kids…” an evening for parents and students in grades 6-8 on Thursday, February 7.  

Over 50 parents were in attendance with their middle schooler & their school issued iPad.  

The evening began in the cafeteria with an update of the KnightPad program and an overview of the events planned.

There were three student led break out sessions where parents learned more about how the iPads are integrated in their student’s classrooms. 

We want to thank our student presenters, teachers, and families who were onhand to experience this valuable evening!!
