8th-11th Grade Student 1:1 iPad Take-home Program

We are excited to announce a change to our student 1:1 iPad initiative.    We are introducing the iPad Summer Take-Home Program.  Starting today, we are giving you the option to keep your iPad during the summer or return it until the start of the 2018-2019 school year.

Students with no outstanding fines who elect to keep their iPad during the summer must pre-purchase the $50/year iPad Care Plan (insurance) before June 13, 2018.  This care plan payment will cover the device during the summer and through the end of next school year (two incidents per year).  Please review the financial responsibility and insurance guidelines below.  Payment can be made in the Board of Education office between the hours of 8am and 3pm, Monday through Friday.  We accept cash and checks made payable to “Clayton Board of Education.”

Students who have outstanding fines or opt out of the iPad Summer Take-Home Program will have their devices collected on June 14, 2018.

Thank you,
