District Student MacBook Air Information for Grades 6-12:
The Aitkin School District is moving forward into it’s 5th year of utilizing the MacBook Air Computer technology in classrooms.
New this year: 6th grade students at Rippleside will also be using MacBook Air computers. 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 for students entering 6th or 7th grade and all students new to the district, to discuss the policies and expectations that are related to the use and upkeep of this learning device.
Students in grades 8-12 who were in the district last year will not need to attend another presentation.
All students will need to do the following before picking up their computer
1) Read the "MacBook Air Computer Acceptable Use, Guidelines and Procedures Handbook" and the "MacBook Student Pledge"(available by clicking on the links to the left)
2) Turn in the completed and signed, “Parent Permission/Student Acknowledgment Form” (one for each student)
3) Turn in the completed and signed "MacBook Air Insurance Policy" form (one per family) along with $25 per student. If you are not purchasing insurance, the form still needs to be filled out and signed indicating that you are declining the insurance.
3) If applicable, pay any outstanding repair/replacement fees from previous years (a bill was sent if money is owed), before being issued the MacBook Air computer.
Forms and documentation are available by clicking on the links to the left.
