iPad Rollout 2019

August 5, 2019

 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

I hope this letter finds you well and that you and your family are enjoying summer vacation. As we prepare for the start of the 2019-2020 school year, I want to provide you with information regarding the iPad distribution for students.

 

The new iPads will be distributed on August 12-23, 2019 from the District Office at 401 Rock Run Road, Elizabeth, PA 15037.  Please see the process and schedule below:

 

Step 1:  Check In - Parent/Guardian will check in at the district office based on the schedule below.  At that time, the Parent/Guardian will be required to sign an Acceptable Use Agreement and to complete the Technology Protection Fund (TPF) application.

 

Step 2: Payment for the Technology Protection Fund (TPF) will be accepted as cash, check, or credit card. Checks should be made payable to the Elizabeth Forward School District.

Note – iPads for Kindergarten students will not be distributed during this rollout, but payment for the TPF will be accepted. Kindergarten iPads will be distributed within the classrooms.

 

Technology Protection Fund Tiers:

$55.00 for (1) one pupil

$45.00 each for (2) two pupils

$35.00 each for (3+) three or more pupils

 

Step 3: Pick Up - Once a parent/guardian has completed steps 1 and 2, iPads for all of their dependents in grades 1 – 12 will be permitted to go home.
