The Technology department at Leland Public Schools is dedicated to supporting staff, students and their families in pursuit of educational excellence. Our vision is to leverage the power of technology to improve student learning by providing engaging and powerful learning experiences and content, as well as resources and assessments that measure student achievement in more complete, authentic, and meaningful ways.

Students have access to personal technology at LPS in the following ways this year:

Kindergarten classrooms have one iPad for every two students to support teacher led explorations using technology.

Grades 1 & 2 classrooms have one iPad and keyboard for every student to support further teacher led technology exploration with exposure to keyboarding.

Grades 3 – 12 students are each issued personal iPads with keyboard cases that they may take home.

Why do we choose iPads as student devices? 

 - iPads are built to enhance learning

 - iPads make students career ready in the modern world

Content filtering

Leland Public School provides content filtered Internet access to our onsite school network.  Our Internet Provider (TBA ISD) utilizes the Lightspeed Systems content filter.  Additionally all iPads issued to students are forced to use Apple's "Limit Adult Content" filter.  iPads issued to Elementary students (K-6) also are installed with the Securly web content filter that provides the same content filter regardless of what network the iPad is connected to.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Policy:

Students in grades 10-12 may bring their own laptops or Chromebooks for use in school. They still must sign an acceptable use policy and then we can add their BYOD laptop to the school network. It is still expected that students have their school issued iPads ready for onsite classroom work. We do not add personal phones, tablets, or iPads to the school network.

iPad Care Guidelines & Fee Schedule


We are proud to have a supportive community that has continued to approve a Technology and Bus Bond initiative every few years. This bond gives us the ability to purchase updated technology hardware that helps put devices in the hand of every student and teacher.

In addition we assess a Technology Use fee annually of $25 per student (in grades 3-12) to help cover some of the extra associated costs. Expenses such as software, insurance, and administration are not covered by the Technology and Bus Bond.
