App store for student iPads
The Self-Service app is the “app store” for student iPads.
What’s an AUP violation?
All internet browsing on both Chromebooks and iPads is filtered by GISD firewalls, regardless if it is a personal or public WiFi connection.
Inappropriate searches are a violation of the Acceptable Use Policy.
A daily report is generated and shared with the Campus Technology Assistant and principals.

Campus Parent Involvement Policy
The Campus Parent Involvement Policy explains how our campus supports the important role of parents in the education of their children. We offer a Parent Compact to establish a partnership among parents, school staff, and students for improving student academic achievement.
All of our policies and procedures for the 2020-2021 school year can be found in our Sewell Parent Handbook. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Please make sure to read the Parent Compact for agreements about parent, student, and school/teacher responsibilities:
Campus Improvement Plan
A Campus Improvement Plan serves as the blueprint for how a campus will address performance objectives and other campus needs that have been identified from a Campus Needs Assessment.
To support our mission of providing an exceptional education to all students, we have created policies designed to help your student have the best possible education experience.
