iPad Collection

TRMS will be collecting iPads by grade level starting on May 11th. We are suggesting that all student update the operating system to 8.3 and back up their device as we will be wiping each iPad this year. Please click here to find out more information about backing up your device. We will NOT be walking students through this process, but if you have questions a DC staff member can help prior to the collection date.
Students will be expected to return their iPad, case w/stand, box charger, lightning cable. We will walk students through a reverse distribution to erase the iPad and assess any fees. Please make sure you locate all accessory items before the collection date. Also, if there are any issues with the iPad, please see a DC staff member prior to collection date to possibly avoid charges in Infinite Campus.
Current 6th + 7th grade students will receive a packet on the day of collection including new insurance information, updated student/parent expectations, and an LTP agreement. We are asking that the LTP agreement be signed and returned to math teachers the next day. We will distribute iPads in school next year based on the LTP agreement being returned.
