Guidance on IPad Requests and Returns
Families can use the DOE Remote Learning Device request form to notify schools of their technology needs. In order to help schools to identify families still in need of devices, the DOE is asking that parents fill out the Remote Learning Device request form by August 31 (though the form will remain open throughout the year for parents to use to notify schools of new device and internet-connectivity needs). The August 31 deadline for families will give schools time to assess the needs of their students and plan to fill them by the beginning of the school year. During the week of August 24, the DOE will poll families who need to return iPads (e.g., graduating seniors or students who are leaving the DOE) to determine if those students have returned DOE-loaned devices to a school, or if they still have the device. Any student who still has a device will receive instructions and a prepaid box to mail the iPad back to the DOE.
