Yes, if a parent does not want their child to bring the iPad home – they can “opt-out” of taking the iPad home and do not have to sign the iPad responsibility form. They MUST still sign the AUP. The iPad never goes home with the child, when your student is "Opted-Out".
"Opt-Out" means the iPad is placed in your school's Media Center (or with a specific classroom teacher, if that makes sense, based on the need) and checked in/out daily. The iPad will not go home; It will be used in the classroom as a learning tool. If they have homework, they will need to use their own computers at home or a paper copy will be provided.
