Student Technology Device Requests for 2020-2021

 

IMPORTANT NOTE!

Students who were assigned an iPad last year must have their device swapped as well as they do not support the iReady app. Please fill out the device request form to have your iPad swapped if you received one from us last year.

Students who need an NSD device for use at home will be assigned a device from the Crystal Springs campus inventory. Families will no longer need to contact the Family Tech Support line to request a device. Families will be able to make a first-time device request OR make a device swap request (iPads to Chromebook, or if there is a device malfunction).

Device distribution from the CS campus will follow all the health and safety procedures to prevent exposure to Covid19, including the use of gloves and PPE, procedures for hand washing and sanitizing, and maintaining social distancing procedures during scheduled distribution times. 

Distribution of devices to new families or families who are making a first-time device request

  • Families need to complete a Device Request Form which includes a digital signature to the NSD Technology Use Agreement https://form.jotform.com/202085825509053

  • Families must complete this digital form in order to receive a device (no form, no device)

  • Chromebooks will be assigned to all students.

Exchange of devices for students who need a different device, or have a device malfunction

  • Requests for device swaps also require completion of the Device Request Form https://form.jotform.com/202085825509053

  • Students changing grades may need a different type of device (e.g., 1st graders who were assigned an iPad last year will need to be swapped to a Chromebook for 2nd grade)

  • Students who were assigned an iPad last year must have their device swapped as well as they do not support the iReady app.

A device pickup schedule is TBD. Families should not come to CS to pick up devices unless contacted by CS staff. Device requests will continue to be fulfilled as quickly as possible.
