We are happy to announce that during the summer, incoming freshmen will participate in our iPad rental program.
Instructional Technology Strategic Plan
Our Instructional Technology Strategic Plan, which the Board of Education approved, accelerates student learning by leveraging instructional technology to enhance instruction. It ensures that our mobile learning program continues to lead us toward engaging, interactive and hands-on learning environments that are expected in the 21st century.
Glenbard rental plan: Your student will rent his/her iPad from Glenbard and use it 24/7, 365 days a year for his/her schoolwork and personal learning projects. The $189 annual rental fee includes the device, access to a keyboard, case, insurance and technical support from our technology staff. At the end of the 4th year of rental, ownership of the device will be transferred to the graduating student’s family.
Digital Curriculum/ Applications: In addition to the iPad, rental or purchase, families will be required to pay an $85 digital curriculum/ app fee to cover the costs of digital textbooks, novels, workbooks, and district-provided applications. This fee replaces the $125 annual textbook rental fee that will be charged to returning juniors & seniors.
Students in the iPad rental program will get their iPad and 2.5 hour training in late August. You will receive a letter in the summer.
