iPad Collection Information

  • Attention Westpine Parents,

    Many students misplace their iPad plugs/adapters and cords throughout the year. It's important to note that parents are responsible for replacing these iPad accessories. You can purchase a charger on Amazon or at a local store for a fraction of the price. If any part of the device is not returned at our end-of-the-year iPad collection, a financial obligation will be placed on your child's BCPS account. The amount of this obligation is indicated in the chart below.

    Furthermore, students returning to Westpine for the following academic school year will be reassigned to the same device, charging adapter, and cord. Obligations must be paid in full for your child to receive an iPad during the next school year.
