Tolles equips all students on campus with an iPad to provide students with technology needed to thrive in a global economy. Digital tools have revolutionized the world and broadened the horizons of individualized education lifting all students. The iPad will personalize learning, allow students to create content and share with a global audience, and further advance their preparation for college and career.
All students receive an iPad device, charger and cord, protective case. All items are distributed on the first days of school (if students have paid for insurance) and are expected to be returned during the collection process, which occurs during the 2nd and 3rd weeks of May.
PLEASE NOTE: All half-day and full-day Hilliard students attending Tolles will receive their iPad device from Tolles, not Hilliard. This is an agreement between Tolles and Hilliard City Schools.
iPad 1-to-1 FAQs
If, however, the iPad is lost, stolen, or totally damaged as a result of irresponsible behavior, the student/parent/guardian may be responsible for the full replacement cost, however, the insurance plan should protect most issues. See iPad 1-to-1 guidelines for replacement costs.
All Hilliard City Schools students, whether half-day or full-day, will receive their iPad device from Tolles. Hilliard and Tolles have formed a partnership that allows Tolles-enrolled students to receive an iPad device from us, but also receive support from the help desks at their respective high schools, if needed. Hilliard City Schools will begin their iPad 1-to-1 for high school students during the 16-17 school year.

In the event of a lost or stolen iPad and once a police report is filed, Tolles, in conjunction and with police, may deploy location software which may aid the police in recovering the iPad.
Students who cease to be enrolled in Tolles must return the iPad, along with any other accessories, at the time they leave the school. The iPad and all accessories should be returned to district administration. Any fees collected as a part of this initiative will not be refunded.
Every student must have an Apple ID. If a family chooses to connect that Apple ID to a credit/debit card, students can purchase and install apps, including free apps, as long as they are within the AUA and student handbook expectations. Students will need to have access to both the Apple ID and password while they are using the device. Tolles will distribute Apps to the student device and the Apple ID and password are required to install these items.
You can create an Apple ID without a credit card connected to it. Learn more here.
The Launch Lab is part classroom, part learning lounge, part incubator. Think Facebook campus or Google Headquarters. Unlike lecture-based education, we have the latitude to experiment, shaking up traditional education in favor of individualized approaches that lift all students. The Launch Lab has given rise to a “movement” at Tolles, where technology integrates with traditional and experimental teaching to give students a robust educational experience.
