As the school year approaches, we are excited to share with you the iPad 1:1 Handout Information for the 2017-18 school year. This year, students in grades 4-12 will have the opportunity to bring their devices home as a way to support our school district mission of "preparing self-directed learners to thrive in a changing global community."

As in year's past, we will be offering students the chance to pick up their iPad before school begins. This year, students in grades 6-12 will have an opportunity to pick up their device in the High School Media Center between August 22-August 24. Families can sign up for the day that best works for them at https://goo.gl/forms/E5XxGcxMnm63C43k1. Students in grades 4 and 5 will be getting their device after school has begun.

New this year is our streamlined process for families to review the iPad User Agreement and select their preference for protecting the student device. This is the same resource families will use to register their child for high school activities and soon add money to their child's lunch account. The process requires families in grades 4-12 to set up an account at http://beckeractivities.registryinsight.com/. To help guide you through this process, there is a short video available on the home screen. You will be asked to enter your child's ID number, which can be found in Skyward --> Student Information --> Other ID. Please refer to the enclosed image below to help locate this ID number.

Completing the iPad User Agreement and selecting your choice of iPad protection online will greatly reduce the amount of time needed for your student to pick up his or her device.

Thank you again for your continued support. We are looking forward to another fantastic school year!
