Macbook Air Information
MacBook Air Computers will be distributed in late August - a schedule will be posted the beginning of August
District Student MacBook Air pickup for grades (8-12):
The Aitkin School District is moving forward into it’s 4th year of utilizing the MacBook Air Computer technology in classrooms. This gives students a wide range of versatility to continue to develop and expand their computer skills needed to research and magnify learning opportunities. This technology requires a parent/student meeting to discuss the policies and expectations that are related to the use and upkeep of this learning device. Since most students were subject to this presentation last year, students in grades 8-12 who were in the district last year will only have to pay for any outstanding computer fees (a bill was sent in June if money is owed), and turn in the “1:1 Acknowledgment Form” (one for each student), and the MacBook Air Voluntary Insurance Policy (one per family) and payment (if you are purchasing the optional insurance) before being issued the MacBook Air computer. Forms are available by clicking on the links to the left.
Students will not have a device issued to them without the necessary forms signed by parents AND students, and fees paid. If you wish to purchase insurance, it must be paid for BEFORE the computer will be issued.
If you do not wish to purchase insurance, please fill out the insurance form and initial the line by "I do not wish to purchase insurance for my student(s) MacBook" and sign the form.
Dates for student computer pickups: TBD
MacBook Air Policy: If you would like to review the MacBook Air Policy (#524.1) before picking up the MacBook Air computer, the policy can be found on the school web page (www.isd1.org) under "District" --> "District Policies". If you are unable to view the MacBook policy online and would like a copy of the policy before the student/parent meeting, please stop by the High School Principal’s office and we will accommodate your request.
