Buy From Us (Purchase or Lease to Own)
iPad (seventh-generation) comes with an iPad keyboard combo case. 3 years of accidental insurance is included in the cost.
Lease to own is split into 4 installments. The first installment due when ordering and then 3 installments at the beginning of each consecutive school year.
Last year’s cost:
Purchase – $480.95 plus tax
Lease to Own – 4 Installments – $123.10 plus tax
Bring Your Own (BYOD – Bring Your Own Device)
The iPad needs to be an iPad Air 2 WiFi 32 GB or better. We also require a case and we recommend a sleeve. There is a fee of $50.00 plus tax for Management License and App Suite.
Note: Families with the class of ’23 students that are interested in using the iPad Air 2 32GB with incoming 6th-grade students (class of ’26) – This is accepted. But note that this iPad may not last the full 3 years of middle school due to Apple discontinuing iOS updates. At that time families will need to acquire a supported iPad or switch to another option.
School Use Option (District Owned)
Students will pick up and drop off the iPad each day in the technology office. Permission can be given by teachers to take the iPad home when homework and/or studying is necessary on the iPad.
It is expected that other devices at home that can be used as many activities and tools are in the cloud. Here is blog post the talks about accessing school work without an iPad “At Home Alternatives to the iPad.”
Financial Assistance (District Owned)
If families qualify, an iPad will be provided for use during the year (including taking it home at night). The iPad would need to be returned in June and can be re-issued to your child in September for the new school. Financial Assistance applications are needed each year.
