Why We Choose 1:1

Our Mission statement states “NBISD provides an environment where all students are engaged and empowered to become self-reliant learners in a constantly changing world.” We believe this must include a student centered classroom with an emphasis on Project Based Learning.

Through research, we believe the best way to create this kind of learning environment is to take advantage of the information at our fingertips with the use of technology. Constant access to a personal device empowers all students, regardless of income, to engage in the collaboration, creativity, communication, and critical thinking necessary for post-K12 education and career.

UsageFeeButtonMAKE A PAYMENT

New Braunfels ISD recognizes a need to protect its iPad investment, and its students’ responsibility with District issued iPads. The description below outlines the user fee for a student’s protection of the iPad against damage, loss or theft.

The user fee is a yearly $25.00 payment per parent/student. The $25.00 user fee is nonrefundable. User fees will not be prorated for partial years or semesters.

This fee will not cover the loss or damage of the iPad case or charger. Parents/Students will be responsible for the full cost to replace those items.
Cost of full case – $35.00
Cost of screen cover only – $13.55

Cost of brick – $17.50
Cost of cord – $17.50

Pay User Fee

In the event of loss or theft, the student/parent will be responsible for a payment of $100.00, and the district will cover the remaining expenses.  This will include one replacement of a lost or stole iPad.  Additional replacements will cost the student/parent the full value of an iPad replacement. If the iPad is intentionally damaged however, the student/parent will be responsible for the full replacement cost of the iPad.

In cases of theft, vandalism and other criminal acts, the student/parent MUST file a police or fire report. A copy of the police/fire report must be provided to NBISD within two weeks of the incident.
