Sweetwater ISD's Technology Loan Program, which supplies our sixth through twelfth grade student Apple iPads, will have a few changes starting with the new school year.

Instead of a yearly usage fee there will be a one time $50 deposit collected in August during 'Meet the Teacher' or when students return to school. This deposit is refundable when the student leaves the district and will be carried forward as they advance grade levels.

Also new this year is an insurance option that covers most damage without a deductible and without a limit on the number of times the device can be repaired. The insurance is provided by iTurity in Austin and can be purchased for $44.
