The iPad initiative, launched in the fall of 2013, grows on a rich history of experiential education at Proctor. A leader at integrating technology seamlessly into the learning environment, Proctor was one of the first schools to deploy a campus wide, wired/wireless network in the mid 1990’s, to initiate a 1 to 1 laptop program, and to established a full-time internet connection with the National Science Foundation.
The ITS (Information Technology Services) staff, is part of the PAIS (Proctor Academy Information Services) staff and manages the school’s technology resources. These include managing our campus-wide network, file servers, Google Apps, printers, copiers, Internet and intranet access, AV systems, and all school-owned technology equipment, as well as myProctor, the school’s student information system.
Located in the lower level of the Fowler Learning Center is the ITS Help Desk where students, employees, and alumni can get technology support. Support includes help with software programs, printing issues, Google Apps, student server use, and Internet connection issues, and myProctor support.
Our Technician will provide warranty support for iPads, laptops and desktops. iPads will be shipped to an Apple repair center and/or repaired on site; most laptops are repaired on site. If an iPad or laptop is out of warranty, a rate for repair of $50/hr plus any parts not covered by warranty will apply. Proctor will provide a loaner if a repair takes longer than two hours.
Laptops and AV equipment may be signed out at the Help Desk for school use when required for an assignment. Students are responsible for theft or damage to borrowed or loaner equipment due to misuse or neglect.
All support requests should be directed to our Help Desk.
Tues & Thurs Evenings 7-9 p.m. (when school is in session)
Buying Personal iPads/Computers
Proctor faculty and administrators have embraced the educational benefits unleashed through technology. Laptops and Mobile devices provide new venues for content delivery, exploration, assessment, and management in the classroom. In support of this and Proctor’s overall philosophy around technology integration, all incoming students must bring an Apple device to Proctor. This can be either a MacBook or an iPad with Apple Pencil, keyboard and case.
Required: Apple Laptop or iPad with keyboard and case
Any 2016 or newer; MacBook Air, MacBook, or MacBook Pro.
iPad: must support Apple Pencil, recommend WiFi only, no Cellular!
9.7-Inch iPad, 2018 only, 32GB or 128GB must support Apple Pencil
10.5 Inch iPad Pro, 2017 or 2018
12.9 Inch iPad Pro, Gen1, 2017 or 2018

Students must have their own personal U.S. Apple ID and password. See https://support,apple,com/en-us/HT204034 for information on how to get one. It is not advisable to use a parent id as the id is used for managing online books and apps needed for coursework.
Prior to Arrival:
Purchase a Mac Laptop, or iPad that supports an Apple Pencil, from any store that sells Apple products. Proctor has an agreement with Apple that alows students to purchase direct via this link: Proctor Apple Store. Refurbished iPads may be purchased from Apple with the same warranty as a new device.
For new purchases, Proctor strongly recommends parents purchase the Applecare+ warranty. Every Laptop and iPad comes with one year of hardware repair coverage through its limited warranty and up to 90 days of complimentary tech support. AppleCare+ extends your coverage to three years from the original purchase date of your iPad and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a $49/iPad and $99/laptop service fee plus applicable tax. In addition, you’ll get 24/7 priority access to Apple experts via chat or phone.
Leverage technology to support the mission of the school.
It is the job of Information Technology Services, ITS, to plan for, purchase, and support needed technology and training to help Proctor’s employees and students succeed at their jobs and/or course work. ITS strives to make work easier, effective, and efficient, while ensuring that data is digitally accurate, secure, and that users are following the school’s Technology Use Contract.

Use of Fileservers or Google Drive is encouraged for important documents to prevent potential loss of data should a computer be lost or dies unexpectedly.
The Helpdesk assists students and staff with phone and PC technology, and also issues photo id cards for students and employees. These cards allow access to building entry doors.
Student access to the fitness room, girls locker room, and dorms is managed by ITS. Kyle Tremblay manages dorm changes and notifies ITS, who updates card access. ITS will not change student dorm access without first receiving Kyle's confirmation of the change. Students who need access to Slocumb. Music or other buildings should request this through their teacher.
Employee access is determined by the needs for the position an employee holds. Safety and Security and/or ITS may grant or change access as appropriate. Faculty, by default, have access to the Fitness Center, Academic buildings, dorms, and Maxwell.
ITS provides telephony, computer networking, and networking infrastructure for services across campus. Access to “on-line” services and the Internet are made through an entirely wireless campus including offices, classrooms, labs, residence halls, common areas around campus, and faculty apartments. Currently PA support a 600Mb/S internet connection.
Connectivity to the network will require each user to register their computer and obtain an IP (Internet Protocol) address associated with their PA User Account.
When students first arrive they will be given a User Account, a Gmail address, and a Password what will allow them to register their devices on Proctor’s Network.
Printers are located throughout campus and maintained by ITS.
