Buchanan High School offers a One-to-One (1:1) computer device environment to all students 8th through 12th grade. 8th and 9th grade students are assigned Chromebooks to use during the day. 8th grade students will not be allowed to take these units home, however, parents may wish to purchase insurance to cover accidental situations that may arise where they would be liable. 9th grade students may participate in the Device Protection Program which is outlined in greater detail below. The following information is provided for your reference. Buchanan Community Schools does not endorse any of these products.

10th through 12th Grade Students
Students will be assigned an iPad. Because of the age of the iPads, students will be charged a flat rate of $50 in the event of accidental damage, loss or theft. The device will then be replaced or repaired. We have found that this option is cheaper for our families than it is to carry insurance on our iPads. Parents are still required to give permission for students to take the iPad home and students are still required to accept the terms of the device usage as outlined in the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Students should return the AUP to their teachers as soon as possible on order to receive their assigned device.
Insurance options are still available should you choose that option. More information is available here: iPad Insurance Options
