All new students in 2017-2018 will bring their own iPads.
• Minimum Required: iPad Air2 with 32GB;
• Minimum Recommended: iPad Pro 9.7” with 32 GB;
• These are minimums: any newer iPad or iPad Pro is acceptable.
Returning Students for 2017-2018: Existing students will have one full school year to transition to Bring Your Own iPad. For the 2017-2018 School Year, you may:
• Keep a school-issued iPad ($50 iPad Agreement/waiver necessary) for one more school year;
• Purchase your own iPad – see minimum requirements above.
If you are a returning student, you will have to pay your iPad waiver fee for this year, unless you choose to provide your own iPad. Information for the iPad contract and waiver payment will be placed here in the future. Check back throughout the summer.
For students bringing their own devices, we highly recommend purchasing protective hardware. You may purchase it from anywhere, but to help you, here is a link to a vendor who has customized a product list for our devices. Just enter “mvcs” for the Company Code.
For the 2017-2018 school year, you have 2 options: you may purchase an annual pass, which will be valid for the entire school year, or you may purchase a 10 pack of bus passes which can be used at any time. Stay tuned to this page for more information on pricing and purchasing in the near future.
We will once again be using Edtech as our book vendor. The digital “bookshelf” is not yet ready for purchasing, but we will announce it here when it is.
