iPad Collection - A Message from Carroll's Digital Learning Coaches

Student iPad collection begins Friday, May 18 and will continue through Wednesday, May 23. Before collection begins, please check with your student and be sure they are ready to turn in their iPad and charger.  All students are required to turn in a device, charging brick, and working cord. Students who did not initially receive a charger because they did not turn one in the previous year, or who lost their charger this year, must  purchase a new cord and/or charging brick to be turned in on the day of collection or pay the StayMobile fee of $20 to replace it. Items not returned or paid for on the day of collection will be charged to the students’ PowerSchool accounts.  Questions can be directed to our Digital Learning Coaches, Jennifer Bell and Molly Harnden.
