Grades 6-8 will be issued district-owned iPads again this year to use as an educational tool. iPads are the property of the Ramsey School District and there is an expectation of proper care, use, and awareness of the responsibilities for such a device. Insurance is required, at the cost of the individual, for the privilege of using the iPad outside of the school buildings. The agreements must be signed before iPads will be issued or activated for students.
The policy is effective from September 1, 2016 – August 31, 2017. The annual premium is $ 46.00 per student. iPads are considered an integral learning tool and are a valuable piece of school property which must be handled with care. Intentional abuse is a serious offense and may be subject to fines and possible disciplinary action.
A fine of $46.00 will be assessed in your child's portal. FamilyID includes a secure payment portal via PayPal which accepts credit cards. If you wish to pay by check, you may choose "other" at time of payment. Make the check payable to "Ramsey Board of Education Student Fund" and write your child's name in the memo line. Bring the check to the Smith School Media Center. Do not combine the fees for students attending different schools. Fines will be removed from the portal when the payment and registration are received.
No iPad will be issued without both the registration and the payment. If your family is entitled to free and reduced lunch, please contact your school’s secretary for a waiver.
