    Technology Sponsorship Program - Sign Up Now!

    As we mentioned in August, we believe the availability of dedicated student devices is more important than ever and know it is crucial to support the needs of our students and teachers. Our parish has invested over $130K to help us achieve this goal of a 1:1 technology to student ratio. THANK YOU!

    Tablets for 4K-3rd grade and laptops for 4th-8th grade have been delivered and are being processed to ensure they are secure and compatible with our programing. All devices will be ready to use after Thanksgiving.

    We invite families with 4K-3rd grade students to consider sponsoring the school’s investment in tablets by participating in an OPTIONAL Tablet Sponsorship Program.

    Details:

    • The device model is the Lenovo M10 Plus which is part of a durable, education line of tablets. These tablets will work well with Seesaw and our other programs
    • The optional tablet sponsorship program will be $20/year. In choosing to sponsor, your child would have the ability to bring their tablet to and from school or use it in a virtual learning situation.

    Benefits:

    • Your child would have the ability to take the tablet home as needed for projects/ homework or if a virtual learning situation occurs.
    • The device is confirmed to work well with Seesaw and other primary grade programs. 
    • The device will be insured and managed by the Holy Apostles Technology Coordinator, who will support, troubleshoot, or swap out devices if a problem occurs. If excessive repairs are necessary, a cost may be incurred to families. 
    • The devices will be monitored by Holy Apostles through Microsoft Intune. 

    We would like to invite families with 4th-8th grade students to consider sponsoring this technology by participating in an OPTIONAL Laptop Sponsorship Program.   

    Details: 

    • The device model is the Dell Latitude 3190 which is part of their durable, education line of laptops.
    • The optional sponsorship program will be $175.95/year for 3 years. Our fees are determined based on our actual costs. We will be passing on our bulk/nonprofit discount directly. You will have the option to pay each year in full or make periodic payments online.
    • At the end of the 3-year program, you would have the option to buy the laptop for a small fee of $25 or turn it in and continue sponsorship of a newer device the following year. 
    • Families would have the option to sponsor the full device cost up front if interested. 
    • Devices will be serviced over the summer during a predetermined two-week window. More details will be made available on this process in the spring of 2021. 

    Benefits: 

    • Your child would have the ability to take their laptop home as needed for projects/ homework or if a virtual learning situation occurs.
    • The device is confirmed to work well with our school technology and networks. 
    • The device will be insured through Dell and managed by the Holy Apostles Technology Coordinator, who will support, troubleshoot, or swap out devices if a problem occurs. If excessive repairs are necessary, a cost may be incurred to families. 
    • The devices will be monitored by Holy Apostles through Microsoft Intune.

    Frequently Asked Questions: 

    I already have a device at home my child can use. What if I choose not to take part in the sponsorship program? No problem. Your child will have an assigned device to use while in school and will continue to have access to their Microsoft account from your home PC/Mac browser. 

    I do not think I need a device right now, but what if I change my mind? You are welcome to opt into the sponsorship program at any time. Joining requires a minimum 1-year commitment.

    Can my child bring their home device (independently purchased) to school to use? No, for safety and security reasons, only school issued devices may be used in school.

    How will these devices be used in classrooms?  In previous years, all students had the ability to share devices, which may not be possible for a large part of this year. We will certainly be integrating technology in similar ways, but more effectively and efficiently.

    • In K-3rd tablets will only be used when needed for educational support. We believe children should learn from their teacher and each other, not from a screen all day. Our teachers will continue to provide creative and interactive lessons for each subject. Tablets will be integrated into lessons as needed. 
    • In 4th - 8th devices will be used on and off throughout the day on assignments, projects, and research.
