All grades 4-12 students in Spring Lake Park Schools will be provided an iPad for use in the classroom and to take home. For the 2018-2019 school year, the cost of insurance will be $10 per student, with a deductible for breaks.
When you select your insurance option, you and your student are agreeing that the district case will remain on the student's device at all times.
Purchasing iPad insurance is optional for families. However, all families must register online to accept or decline an insurance plan. Once you have selected and registered for an insurance option, your child will be eligible to receive an iPad on the distribution dates determined at each school. Students do not have to pay a fee to receive an iPad.
There is no upfront cost to families if insurance is declined.
If iPad insurance is declined, parents are responsible for the full cost of all repairs if damaged and replacement if lost or stolen.
