iPad Information

We are a 1:1 district, with all students using iPads as their learning tool. Through increased use of technology, our students are building skills in the areas of communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking. Students are engaged in projects and lessons that would not be possible without technology.

Instructional Technology Strategic Plan

Our Instructional Technology Strategic Plan, which the Board of Education approved, accelerates student learning by leveraging instructional technology to enhance instruction. It ensures that our mobile learning program continues to lead us toward engaging, interactive and hands-on learning environments that are expected in the 21st century.

Glenbard rental plan:
  Your student will rent his/her iPad from Glenbard and use it 24/7, 365 days a year for his/her schoolwork and personal learning projects.  The $189 annual rental fee includes the device, case, insurance and technical support from our technology staff.    At the end of the 4th year of rental, ownership of the device will be transferred to the graduating student’s family, if the student’s account is paid in full.
 
Key Program Benefits:

Onsite Tech Support
Students will have direct access to on-site technical support within school during normal school hours. Non-Glenbard owned devices are not eligible for support.

Easy Insurance Claims/Coverage
Repairs and replacement of the iPad can be costly.  Students receive insurance coverage as part of their annual fee and expenses are limited to a fixed deductible fee for the repair/replacement of the iPad.  For more information on insurance coverage click here for details. 
 
Access to Loaner Devices
Loaner devices are available under the rental program. If a student’s device is out for repair, they will be provided with a loaner iPad to use until the device is repaired and returned to the student. 
 
Dedicated For Student/School Use
Having a device that is strictly used by the student for school work will avoid any issues with their access to the learning tool at any time. This also avoids any issues with shared content, school appropriate applications and/or other issues that may arise from allowing multiple people access to use a shared iPad.

Digital Curriculum/ Applications:
In addition, families will be required to pay an $85 digital curriculum/app fee to cover the costs of digital textbooks, novels, workbooks, and district-provided applications. 
Students will receive their iPad and training in the summer.  You will receive a letter in the summer.
