School's Almost Out For Summer: To Have Your Child Keep His/Her iPad/Chromebook Is the Question... THE CHOICE IS YOURS!
Last summer we changed our mobile device management system and therefore no longer need to touch every device. So, this year, we have no reason to collect every device. After reviewing and discussing all the ways our students could use their devices for learning over the summer (eBooks, reviewing materials and practice skills learned this year, further investigating academic interests, and exploring and creating projects based on personal interests along with some Brain Break time..of course), we have had discussions about allowing students to keep them over the summer. 1:1 iPads will continue to be used in grades 4-8 and 1:1 Chromebooks in 9-12. Please also note that the school devices will be coming home over the summer with apps that were installed while at school.
If you have completed the form found on the school website along with making the insurance payment by Friday, May 25th your child can take the iPad (this year's 4th-7th Grade Students) and Chromebooks (9th-11th Grade Students) home over the summer and bring it back the first day of school. The device will be ready on the first day of school if you opt out of taking it for the summer. 8th graders will be notified when their devices are ready to be picked up due to new devices being purchased and the time needed for the tech dept to assign each device (if forms and insurance payment are complete). Otherwise, it will be ready the first day of school. If you are bringing your own device, please make sure to mark this on the form! Seniors will be turning in their devices on check-out day. Thank you so much.
THERE WILL BE FOUR IMPORTANT ITEMS THAT NEED YOUR ATTENTION BEFORE YOUR CHILD WOULD BE ABLE TO TAKE HIS/ HER DEVICE OVER SUMMER:
1. All iPads/ Chromebooks would be inspected before summer to assess damage.
2. $40/$350 (refundable) Insurance and paperwork would need to be completed before the device is sent home and insurance would cover through the 2018-2019 school year. You will find the 1:1 Handbook Form Button and 1:1 Device Insurance Button on the homepage of the school website: www.bbejaguars.org 
3. Your child should bring his/ her device ready to go and fully charged to start the new school year.
4. Continue to visit with your child about digital citizenship and appropriate use of the iPad/Chromebook.
IF A FAMILY IS UNABLE TO AFFORD THE INSURANCE, IT IS THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTACT THE BUILDING ADMINISTRATOR; Rick Gossen: 320-346-2278 Ext.1219
