What about lost, stolen or damaged devices?
Last year this was not a problem at Barcroft, and we expect the students will continue to take good care of their devices. In the unlikely event that a device is damaged, lost, or stolen, and the child has taken reasonable precautions to take care of it, APS is not currently asking families to pay for repairs or replacement. Because the students are taking good care of the devices, replacement costs have been low. If costs go up in the future, APS may need to reevaluate this practice. We will notify families of any changes.
Chargers are provided at school, and there are charging stations located in each second and third grade classroom. Since iPads come back to school each day when they do go home, chargers are not needed at home.
