1:1 IPAD OF CHOICE

 The Middle School iPad initiative provides students with a dynamic and robust tool for personal and academic pursuits. Because the iPad is such a critical component in the teaching and learning paradigm, we offer students the opportunity to select the iPad model that best suits their needs and learning preferences. The resources below outline the program in great detail.
Middle School students are required to provide their own iPad.

We strongly recommend an iPad with:

  • the latest version of iOS (version 13 as of July 1, 2020)
  • a screen size of 9.7-10.2 inches (regular size, not iPad Mini, Air, or Pro)
  • 32GB minimum internal memory, although 128GB is welcome as well.
  • Wi-Fi-only configuration (iPads with cellular service are not allowed)

As of July 1, the starting price for iPad is $329. Visit the Apple web site to learn more about iPad specifications.

Some important points:
  • Please note: The price referenced above does not include accessories, including:
     
    • Protective Case or Folio (Required)
    • Keyboard (Required) (Attachable, standalone or built into the case or folio)*
    • Stylus (Required)
    • Screen Protector (Optional)
  • Although you may elect to purchase a 12.9 inch iPad Pro, we do not recommend that you do so based on multiple considerations, including weight, cost, portability, and size of device footprint on student desks.
  • We strongly recommend purchasing AppleCare+ (and optionally, insurance to cover loss or theft), to cover screen damage and operational failure.

*If you are considering a separate wired keyboard, you may want to look at a low-cost option from Hitek, along with a protective sleeve to store both the iPad and keyboard.

Google Apps for Education

In conjunction with the 1:1 iPad Initiative, the Middle School takes full advantage of the cloud-based workflow offered by Google Apps for Education, including access to Google Drive, Google Docs, and Google Email. Using the the Google Apps for Education platform will offer students full access to their saved files from any device anywhere there is internet access. As a result, students and teachers may collaborate by sharing files and information. The most powerful learning outcomes will occur when our students combine the features of Google Apps for Education with the speed, ease of use, and efficiency afforded by the iPad.
