I would like to purchase a device for my child. What do you recommend?

Both iPads and Chromebooks are used in our district.

Any Chromebook model with 4 gig of memory (RAM) and a minimum of 16 gig storage will function well for distance learning. All new model Chromebooks will meet this specification.

iPad model Air 1 or newer ( purchased 2013 or newer) will function well for distance learning.

My child has lost or damaged their iPad charging cord. What should we do?

Chargers & cords are not covered under the 1:1 iPad Program insurance. If a student has lost or damaged their charger, they are responsible for the cost of replacing it. You can purchase a replacement charger and cord through the 1:1 iPad program for $20 for the charger and $20 for the block. Fill out this form to make this arrangement. You may also purchase a replacement elsewhere. An Apple or any Apple-compatible lightning charger cord will work for your student's iPad. If your family purchases a replacement cord & block, you may keep them when the iPad is returned.
