When will iPads be collected?

Can a student keep the iPad over the summer?

iPads are being collected to insure that they are in good working order and can be serviced if needed. Batteries in the device are not user serviceable. The iPad needs to rest over the summer to make certain that the battery lasts as long as possible.

Will a student get the same iPad next year?

All students will receive the same iPad they used this school year in the fall at the 2014-15 Registration.

I no longer have the iPad. It was stolen/lost/missing. How much will I be charged?

The fee to replace an iPad with Apple Care is $547.00. If book rent has been paid, the iPad rental fee will be waived reducing the cost.  Also, if the student can turn in a functioning charging brick and cable, the fee will be reduced by $38.

A device has been damaged accidentally, do I have to pay to have it fixed?

If your fees are up to date and it is the first instance of ACCIDENTAL damage, it is covered. If it is a second instance or higher, $49 is the cost of repair. In some cases Apple will not repair devices due to extreme damage. If this is the case you will be billed for the repair costs.

I have lost my charging cable or my charging brick. How much will I owe?

Each charging cable carries a replacement cost of $19. Each charging brick carries a replacement cost of $19 as well. If you choose to purchase one on your own, it must be an Apple branded charging cable or brick.
