ACS iPad 1:1 PACE Initiative!!
After years of careful planning and thoughtful preparation, Auburn City Schools is excited to launch the iPad 1:1 PACE (Providing Authentic Creative Engagement) Initiative! With this initiative, each student (grades 8 through 12) will be issued an iPad, a technology resource that will enhance academic opportunities across the school’s curriculum. Please refer to the handbook located on AHS’s web page (Our School drop down menu) for more information. Parents and students can also visit the My School Bucks (Parent drop down menu) link on AHS’s web page in order to pay the $50 ACS Technology Fee for use of the iPad and also to electronically sign the Technology Agreement form. AHS is so excited about this program!!
AHS iPad/Technology Fee Information
Remember! All of AHS students will be issued an iPad and case combination for their use during the school year! We are so excited about this new opportunity for our students! Textbooks, class-specific apps, and learning tools will be loaded onto these devices. As such, the iPad is a required learning tool each day for our students. Students’ personal devices will not have the same capabilities, including access to AHS’s wireless. Please refer to the iPad handbook located on the AHS website (Our School drop down menu) for more information. Before the device can be issued to the student, parents must visit the My School Bucks link (on the Parent drop down menu on AHS’s web page) in order to pay the required $50 ACS Technology Fee and also to electronically sign the required Technology Agreement form.
