Bring Your Own iPad to CHS

Bring Your Own iPad to CHS!

Claremont High students may bring personally owned iPads for academic use on the CHS wireless network. Participating students will also receive educational apps installed free of charge on their iPads.

For further information, please read the BYO iPad Frequently Asked Questions or contact Kara Evans, Technology Teacher on Special Assignment.

What Devices are Recommended for BYOiPad?

What is an acceptable device for BYO iPad?

For management, security, and equivalent classroom experiences, iPads must be able to support iOS 11.4.1 or newer. Recommended devices include:

  • iPad (5th or 6th generation)
  • iPad Pro
  • iPad Air or Air 2
  • iPad Mini 3 or 4

Devices must have at least 32 GB of storage. Students should turn off wireless capabilities while on campus. 


If I don’t already own an iPad for my student, what purchasing options exist?

BYO participation is entirely voluntary. If families choose to participate and want to purchase a device, iPads can be purchased directly from any electronics vendor (Apple, Best Buy, Costco, New Egg, Target, etc). Most vendors also offer refurbished options at a reduced price.


CUSD does not endorse any one vendor over another and buyers should beware of how long older equipment may be able to support operating system updates.
