Optional Summer iPad Checkout NOW OPEN

Families with students who currently take iPads home in grades 3-11 may now opt to check out their issued iPads for the summer months! Last year more than 60% of eligible families and students opted to check out their issued iPads. Using FeePay to agree to the updated 2019-20 iPad Loan Agreement and having your child complete the summer iPad checkout process at their current school will also ensure that your child is set with the iPad check out for the entire 2019-20 academic year.

The option for Summer iPad checkout supports our efforts to foster open-ended, personalized learning opportunities; curiosity; exploration and continued access to creative tools and resources. While summer is typically full of a wide range of activities, the flexibility of the summer months offers a great time to take advantage of a variety of learning resources from e-books to online resources, to free courses, to the use of digital tools in the creation of original writings, drawings, photos, videos, and music.

We are excited about this option not only because of the potential for open-ended exploration and creative learning opportunities over summer, but also because of the time saved from having to “redistribute iPads” this coming fall during the first few crucial weeks of school. With the optional summer iPad checkout, fewer returning students will need to be scheduled through a “fall checkout” process when schools are back in session. This will shorten the amount of time that students and teachers are without iPads in the classroom next fall. Those opting for summer iPad checkout will be set until spring 2020. 

The updated 2019-20 iPad Loan Agreement, which includes information regarding summer iPad checkout along with other helpful information for iPads deployed during the regular school year, is available online for review. In addition, the FeePay  “iPad” activities are also live for each site allowing parents, guardians, and students the ability to agree to the terms of the 2019-20 iPad Loan Agreement and either ENROLL in or WAIVE participation in the “full year” version of the iPad Protection Plan.

Please see our expanded list of Frequently Asked Questions for more details on the optional summer iPad checkout, the “full year” iPad Protection Plan, and repair procedures. Later this month, individual schools will share end-of-year collection information for those not choosing to take advantage of this opportunity.

For families opting to checkout their student’s iPad for the summer, please know that iPad collection dates vary by school. Therefore, it is strongly advised to please use FeePay to review and agree to the 2019-20 iPad Loan Agreement, determine if you want to waive or enroll in the iPad Protection Plan, and complete the “checkout” process by Thursday, May 23rd.

In that iPad collection dates vary by site and the fact that the FeePay iPad Loan Agreement activities cannot be individually assigned, please be on the lookout for additional information from your child(ren)’s school on the deadline for completing the iPad Loan Agreement through FeePay.
