Preparing for the Technology Swap Out for current sophomores:
This spring, students in the sophomore class will "swap out" their current technology equipment (iPad, protective cover, USB cable & power supply) and receive new equipment on a new lease. This process described below will allow data and documents to be restored from the old device to the new device without disruption of class time, AP & semester exams and the student will have a device in hand at all times with all their information. All devices must be returned to the leasing company; the school can not sell older devices to students.
The swap out process has three parts:
- Complete the Prep Information Form.
- Come by the Technology Dept. w/iPad & Prep Information Form for a Prep Meeting.
- Return to the Technology Dept. during your arranged time to Swap Out the equipment.
Part 2 Prep Meetings: the student (preferably the same day), has the same week to take his/her equipment (iPad, protective cover, USB cable & power supply) and the Prep Information Form to the Technology Dept. to complete the Prep Meeting. This meeting is individual and will take approximately 3-5 minutes to confirm the information on the form and to assess the condition of the current equipment. At this time, the student will continue using the old device while the technology department will use the Prep Information Form to prepare the new device. A date will be set for the student to complete the swap out in the technology offices, approximately 5-7 days later. Prep Meetings will be from 7:30am to the end of 1st period and during lunch periods (No Prep Meetings will take place during homeroom or at the end of the day).
Part 3 Swap Out: each student will return to the technology offices on their assigned date, approximately 5-7 days later, to complete the swap out with Ms. Whittier. The student will receive new equipment with the new device fully restored with all data and documents installed and return the old equipment and pay any additional fees necessary. Swap Out times will be from 7:30am to the end of 1st period and during lunch periods (No Swap Outs will take place during homeroom or at the end of the school day).
Possible Additional Charges:
If the iPad being swapped out has any of the following, the cost to the student is $52.00:
- Scratched, Cracked or Shattered Display
- Damaged and/or Anything Stuck in the Charging and/or Audio Port
- Damaged or Stuck Buttons
- Corners and/or damages to the body of the device
If the USB Cable is damaged or lost, the cost to the student is $20.00

Freshmen do not swap out until the spring of their sophomore year and will keep their iPad over the summer.
