As the One to World technology integration program expands, students in Grades 6–11 will have the opportunity to keep the district-issued iPad or MacBook Air laptop assigned to them over the summer. This will allow students to continue to have access to Barrington 220 apps, digital books, online subscriptions, and Google accounts throughout the summer. Also, students and teachers will be able to immediately begin next school year with device access.
If, for any reason, a student or parent does not want to keep a district-issued device throughout the summer, families can make arrangements to securely store the device in the district.
If students are enrolled in summer school, they will likely need to use the assigned iPad or laptop. After summer school, the student may keep the device for the remainder of the summer or return it, and the district will securely store it until next school year.
Current students in Grade 8 who are entering Grade 9 next year will swap the district-issued iPad they are using now for a MacBook Air laptop before the end of the school year. Students who are leaving Barrington 220 must return the district-issued device they are using before the last day of school.
Parents and students will be receiving this information in May. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
