1:1 Elementary iPads

  • We are so excited to continue to grow and learn during the 2018-19 school year with one to one technology journey at South Adams Elementary for all K-5 students!  Students in grades K-5 will receive an iPad to use throughout the day.  These devices will be assigned to each individual student and will not be taken home. 

    This technology will be used to enhance our current curriculum and engage students in their daily learning.  This technology will not replace textbooks as we have adopted a new reading series that will put quality books in the hands of students each day.  As we continue this journey, we will explore ways to utilize this technology that we are so fortunate to have!

    We look forward to sharing this journey with you as parents and with our students to discover new ways that technology can enhance our already strong curriculum.  These iPads are a valuable resource in the classroom but will not replace the excellent direct instruction that occurs in our classrooms each day!

    This year parents will have the option to purchase an iPad Maintenance Plan for $10.  This fee will cover any damages to your child’s iPad that may occur during the 2018-19 school year.  South Adams Elementary has been one-to-one with iPads for the past five years and over these years we have experienced damages.  In order to continue to support our one-to-one devices, we are offering this maintenance plan to help offset the cost of any damages.  The cost of any iPad repair will be $100 and a case replacement will be $45 if you opt out of the maintenance plan.  

    Thank you for your continued support and partnership in your child’s education.  Working together as a strong team makes all the difference for our students!

    Sincerely,
