DEPLOYMENT OF iPADs INFORMATION:
For the 2020-2021 school year, every Bethel School District student will receive an iPad, case, cord, and charger.
In the spring of the 2019-2020 school year, Bethel deployed all iPads to go home with all students K-12.
If your student returned their iPad in June, they will need to receive a new iPad for this year.
The deployment dates and times for the 2020-2021 school year are still being decided.
The first focus will be to get iPads to students who are new to the District and to get students who didn't have an iPad over the summer an iPad to start school.
Deployment days will vary depending on your school and you should look to them for specific information.
The Hold Harmless Agreement is a mandatory form for Bethel School District students to receive an iPad. By signing this form it is agreed that:
- The student will immediately report any damage, lost, or stolen devices.
- If an iPad is lost, the full replacement of the iPad will be fined to the students account unless the iPad can be found.
- If an iPad is stolen or damaged, fines will be placed on the students account to either replace or repair the iPad.*
Additionally, all the accessories issued will be returned after the school year or when the student leaves Bethel School District. iPad accessories are not included in the iPad Coverage Program.
iPad accessories include:
- (1) Apple-branded iPad 10w or 12w block
- (1) 3 ft Apple brand charging cable
- (1) Case for the iPad
All issued items not returned will result in a fine on your student's account.
*Subject to the enrollment of the iPad Coverage Program.
iPad Coverage Program (Optional)
The iPad Coverage Program is a fantastic optional opportunity to cover the cost of most mishaps that could happen to your student's iPad.
The iPad Coverage Program is available for all students K-12 and families must either accept or decline coverage by September 15, 2020.
The program helps ease the burden or worry of financial hardship that may come up due to damage that may happen that require replacing the entire iPad. Examples of typical damages we see are:
- Broken screen
- Bent iPads
- Natural disasters
- Stolen iPads
The iPad Coverage Program will cover one school year and is non-refundable. This program does not cover the cord, case, or intentional damage to the iPad. Electing or declining coverage is required to receive your students iPad.
