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!!
Attention Students! You will turn in your school-issued iPad no later than the time of your last day/final! You can turn the iPad in to the AHS Library early if you wish, but please speak with your teachers first to discover if the device will be used during your final exams. Items must be received in good condition.
For Seniors, the school-issued iPad, case, and keyboard plus accessories (Apple 12W charging brick and Apple charging cable) must be returned in good condition before final transcripts and/or a diploma will be released from the Registrar’s office.
For Juniors and Sophomores, the school-issued iPad, case, and keyboard must be returned in good condition before final 2019/2020 academic year schedules will be issued. Students who fail to comply with this requirement are at risk of having their schedules dropped. Also, students failing to comply will not be issued paid-for parking passes or be able to participate in the Homecoming Dance or Junior/Senior Prom.
According to the signed ACS iPad Agreement form, if the iPad is damaged or has missing parts, the charges associated with the damaged/missing items are as follows:
If the school-iPad is not returned or is lost, the student will owe $267.50. Also, if the five digit ACS fixed asset numbers engraved upon the case and keyboard do not match, the student will owe $50 for a replacement keyboard.
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.
