  • For Technology & iPad Use at DCHS

  • Students will use technology as a tool to dig deeper into God’s Word to understand His perfect plan for their lives.
  • Students will have access to content from a variety of resources in a variety of styles tailored to how they learn best.
  • Students will collaborate with teachers, professionals and peers, both at DCHS and other schools, to enhance learning.
  • Teachers will encourage students to utilize the tools available to dig deeper into areas that interest them.
  • Teachers will utilize technology to collaborate with other teachers in their disciplines at other schools.
  • Teachers will organize content in Moodle so they and their students have quick access to important learning material.

List of 3 items.

  • Types of iPads

    The following or more recent iPads or more approved for use at DCHS:

    iPad mini 5
    Storage: 16 GB or larger
    Connectivity: WiFi or WiFi + Cellular
    Starting Price: $399

    iPad 7th gen
    Storage: 16 GB or larger
    Connectivity: WiFi or WiFi + Cellular
    Starting Price: $329

    iPad Air 4
    Storage: 16 GB or larger
    Connectivity: WiFi or WiFi + Cellular
    Starting Price: $499

    iPad Pro 4 gen
    Storage: 32 GB or larger
    Connectivity: WiFi or WiFi + Cellular
    Starting Price: $3997


    Each of the above iPads provides the full functionality needed for use at DCHS. Students will not have an advantage by purchasing a more expensive device.

    At this time DCHS will not support other tablets or laptops. Having a myriad of different devices causes teachers to spend more time on synchronizing technology than teaching the actual material.
  • Purchase of Apps And Books

    It will be the responsibility of the families to purchase required apps for their students. This will be a small one time expense for families. All apps purchased can be used for multiple students (and other family members) on multiple devices. 

    DCHS will provide students with iPad textbooks at no additional cost to the family.

    Students may be asked to download novels and other books available on the iBook store or the Amazon Kindle store. Many of the books required are available for free, however families will be responsible for the cost of any novel or book required for the course.

Policies & Procedures

In 2011,  Delmarva Christian launched an ambitious programs, providing an iPad for every high school student.  The school originally charged families $125/year in order to pay for the $500 device over four years. Since many DCHS families already have an iPad, DCS transitioned to asking parents to provide the device. At the Milton Campus, students have access to ChromeBooks in the grade unit or cluster.

Purchasing an iPad will be a DCHS requirement unless the family already has an iPad their child may use during school hours. We believe appropriately using this resource is essential for adapting to your child’s individual learning style and preparing them for college.
