High School Parents:
Because most sophomores, juniors, and seniors have iPads that they kept over the summer, deployment this year is focused on students who are new to the Power Up 1:1 program such as freshmen and students who are new to MISD. Days are scheduled to issue iPads to these students at each high school. Technicians will be present to guide students through the process of configuring their iPads. Students who didn’t attend iTunes Prep during schedule pick up will also complete iTunes setup on this day.
Students will need to bring their student IDs. They must also have signed Acceptable Use Policies (AUPs) and iPad User Agreements signed by their parents, both of which are available in Skyward and can be signed electronically through the registration process. Please use this link to begin that process: http://www.mansfieldisd.org/page.cfm?p=4882. It’s quick and easy!
Students must also have paid their $50 deposits (online or by check) to be issued iPads.
Discounted deposits are available for students who qualify for the free ($10 deposit) and reduced ($25 deposit) lunch program. The application for the free and reduced lunch program is available at this link: http://www.mansfieldisd.org/page.cfm?p=4681
Important: If you plan to apply for the free and reduced lunch program, please complete the online application and wait for status to be determined before paying the iPad deposit.
Important: Students who have deposits in place already should not pay again.
Parents of incoming ninth graders can pay deposits now using the following link:

Please check out the parent resources on http://edtech.mansfieldisd.org. There is a series of videos called “iPad, iParent: Parenting Strategies for the Digital Age,” that illustrates how to help your child to make good decisions about iPad use and otherwise practice good digital citizenship. Parents have shared that some of the strategies used to monitor student use are especially helpful.
Please post any questions as comments.
We look forward to working with you and your student this year!
